The sector has brilliantly overcome the pandemic, as evidenced by the exponential growth of the Friulian Group which has expanded its branch in the Venetian city, offering an increasingly complete range of services in the field of shipping and logistics.
Road transport in Italy has been playing a role of primary importance for years, to the point that, according to Eurostat data, this mode is used to move almost 90% of goods compared to a European average of less than 80%. Significant numbers, which testify how this sector occupies a prominent place also in terms of employment, with positive effects on the national economy. Like many other sectors, road transport is constantly evolving, in search of innovative solutions that can implement efficiency, safety and comfort, with an ever more attentive look to environmental sustainability.
Despite the difficulties due to the pandemic, the sector managed to resist and overcome the crisis thanks to the effective functioning of the entire chain. Some realities, capable of making far-sighted choices and adequately strengthening their structure, have even grown. This is the case of Ceccarelli who, taking advantage of the experience gained over the years and the attention paid to IT solutions related to the supply chain, has experienced exponential growth since 2008. The Friulian company, which has evolved from a courier to an industrial group in the national and international road transport and logistics sector, has inaugurated a new functional warehouse at the Padua Interport.
A choice dictated by the need to respond to the constant increase in demand, which in Padua in the last eight years has seen the Ceccarelli Group manage a volume of goods that has gone from 400 to 4,000 quintals per day, with peaks of up to 4,500 quintals. The new warehouse has a total area of 3,700 square meters and joins the one already in use, located 100 meters away, for a total of about 7,000 square meters. Equipped with 36 loading and unloading doors for a fleet of 55-60 vehicles, the structure has been equipped with the best technologies, which include anti-intrusion, anti-fire and video surveillance systems.
The attention paid to respecting the environment is concretely reflected in the choice of creating the office environments with high energy saving plasterboard and low consumption lamps, in order to ensure maximum efficiency. On the ground floor, the premises house the reception and logistics management offices, while on the upper level a meeting room and a dining-relaxation area have been created. The old warehouse will continue to be used for collections destined for the Bologna and Milan hubs, while the new one will be used for distribution.
The Padua branch, moreover, plays a strategic role due to the barycentric position it occupies with respect to the Veneto area and its strengthening should allow Ceccarelli to reach a volume of 5,000 quintals of goods per day, reaching the levels of the Udine office. . Founded in 1979, the Friulian company has solid customers behind it, among which large international groups stand out. After Covid's growth recorded even in time, it has 210 direct and as many indirect employees and offers itself as a global partner for businesses.
In 2017 Ceccarelli created Euro's, an internal software house that creates IT solutions related to the supply chain both for the Group and for external customers, while in 2018 it was the turn of Loglab, an engineering consultancy company created to assist the supply chain. of customers. Furthermore, in 2021 the company LME was established, whose core business is road freight transport for third parties, groupage transport with direct delivery and recruitment of traveling personnel, further demonstrating how Ceccarelli Group is able to offer , through its divisions, a complete range of services in the field of shipping and logistics.
