Freight Forwarder Italy

A comprehensive range of Italian road freight solutions to the UK including weekly groupage services, part and full loads and express freight.

We have been actively involved in road freight from Italy to the UK and in the opposite direction since our incorporation in 1995. Our aim back then was to provide bespoke Italian freight forwarding services with our client’s specific requirements at the forefront of our business. With partner depots throughout Italy, we are well placed to assist you with any shipping from Milan, Modena, Rome, Verona, Naples, Venice and Turin.

Having formerly been named Ceramic Logistics up until 2019, we have built our Italian freight services around the importation of stone & ceramic goods, mainly from the north of Italy in the Bologna region. This base cargo has allowed us to grow and diversify our services throughout Italy whilst providing our clients with very competitive rates on any over-stow or light cargo.

We operate a full range of services to and from Italy, including weekly groupage with departures on Tuesday & Friday, part and full loads with transit times of 3-4 days, and multi-modal operations, including sea freight to the UK (with the best rates on shipping containers) our industry-leading Italian express service for any urgent or time-sensitive cargo.

As of the 1st of January 2021 customs clearance is now required on all goods entering or exiting Great Britain. Here at Plexus Freight we have been working hard to ensure that all our client requirements are met. We aim to be in a position to offer a full range of custom services that will see goods transported in line with the new regulations. With strategically positioned custom offices throughout Europe, we are able to ship goods quickly and efficiently ensuring that we effectively handle all matters of customs for our clients both in the UK and throughout Europe.

Express Shipping Italy

Due to the sheers volumes of cargo that we ship from Italy to the UK we are also able to offer a range of express freight solutions that see your goods delivered with no time to spare. Transit times range from 2-4 days depending on your specific requirements. Our 3-day direct pallet service from Northern Italy is very popular and quite costs effective as it is based on a double manned trailer and same day delivery in the UK.

Stone & Ceramic Imports Italy

Our core business is the importation of stone & ceramic goods from Italy, mainly from the northern Bologna region. With several partner depots in this region, we make daily collections and consolidate them into one easy to offload shipment in the UK. Many of our trusted clients have been using Plexus Freight for well over 20 years and rely on us to collect from multiple suppliers and ship the goods via our weekly groupage service. With departures on Tuesday & Friday and transit times of 5-7 days, we offer fast and very competitive Italian groupage services with safe handling and regular updates at the heart of it all.

We have been using Plexus Freight’ services for 5 years and we cannot praise them enough for the service they have provided to us during this time. Their customer service is excellent with continuous updates during the shipping process and they are always willing to try and help when we are under pressure with tight lead times.We highly recommend Plexus Freight to any company who is looking for swift, friendly and a cost effective service.

Shipping equipment overseas and importing equipment into the UK is not our expertise. Over recent months as a company we have done both, having trawled the internet for advice and quotes I came across Plexus Freight and Glen Freeth-Selway. Having no skills in these matters I knew immediately I had made the correct decision by choosing to use Plexus Freight for our requirements.

We at Hard Rock Flooring, have been using the services of Plexus Freight for 12 years. During this time we have received outstanding service and reliability. If there has been a problem we have been kept informed of progress on a regular basis, which is of real value in this day and age. We can thoroughly recommend Plexus Freight.

Iain Marfleet
Managing Director, Hardrock Flooring

I use Plexus Freight for all our Italian and Spanish collections for our tile business in Cornwall. Dealt with them now for around 6 years and the service is brilliant. From booking to delivery, kept informed every step of the way and if there is a problem (which is very rare), notified immediately and sorted out swiftly. Great team and a real pleasure to deal with.
