Nagel Italia and Avion Company join forces

From Italy to the world

The Nagel-Group has expanded its portfolio in Italy: Nagel Italia now offers air and sea freight in addition to temperature-controlled road and rail shipments of food. This is made possible by the new partnership with Avion Company.

“We are very pleased to be able to offer our customers even more services,” says Klaus Pintus, Managing Director of Nagel Italia. “In addition to our core competency on Europe’s highways, we can now send food from Italy to every country in the world.”

If five Parma hams are needed in Hong Kong? No problem! The shipment is sent off immediately by air freight in specially insulated storage boxes. The partnership with Avion Company means that all the major Italian airports are available to Nagel Italia as departure points. “Quite often you don’t even need a freight plane,” says Pintus. The Italian specialities can simply be transported on scheduled flights.

Food logistics by plane and ship

For larger quantities (several pallets or more) Nagel Italia has another transport option available: shipment by sea. Food can now be sent off in containers from every major Italian port. Nagel Italia can also handle all import and customs requirements.

Nagel Italia’s expanded range of services applies to all shipment sizes - from individual items up to full container loads. And we can dispatch food in a range of temperatures, from -18 to 20 degrees Celsius.

Improved supply chain transparency

“This means that we can offer every customer a tailored logistics solution,” reports Pintus with satisfaction. This doesn’t just apply to food exports, but imports as well. Avion Company can bring food to Italy from anywhere in the world. It is then distributed in Europe via the Nagel-Groups’ close-knit network. “It’s a win-win situation. Avion Company benefits from our expertise in food logistics, and we benefit from a worldwide air and sea freight network.”

Weekly shipments by plane and ship make it possible to react quickly to customer enquiries and to get the desired foods to the recipient as quickly as possible. During transport, customers are kept almost constantly up-to-date through our web-based consignment tracking system. This considerably improves supply chain transparency. Customers have access to perfectly tailored logistics solutions for both import and export. We offer both FCL (Full Container Load) and LCL (Less than full Container Load) options.

“Our partnership has made a very successful start,” reports Klaus Pintus. “The feedback from our regular customers about the new services on offer has been very positive.”

Avion Company was founded in 1995 and offers transport and logistics services worldwide. Their network makes road, air and sea freight possible. In addition to the company headquarters in Italy, there are also offices in Tokyo, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney, to mention but a few.
