Freight to Modena & Bologna

This region of Italy is perhaps the most important and most developed part of our business. Since our incorporation back in 1995 as Ceramic Logistics we have been importing Stone and Ceramic goods from Modena, Sassuolo and Reggio Emilia for companies in the UK. We have been working for over 20 years with independent tiles and bathroom shops, tile agents and stone importers providing a reliable and cost-effective importation service utilising the road and multi-modal network throughout Italy and the rest of Europe. For Tile delivery from Modena to the UK we operate a wide range of freight solutions including groupage consolidation, part and full loads and express freight services.

We are in daily contact with the biggest stone and ceramic suppliers in this region including the Panaria group, Lea Ceramiche, Imola, Laminam, Kronos and many others. We make daily collections with departures on Tuesdays and Fridays to the UK whilst also operating sea freight services for goods up to 28,000kg.

Our groupage consolidation service means our clients can instruct us to make numerous weekly collections and ship them as one single shipment to the UK. We do all this whilst keeping pricing simple with a price per tonne. Over the past few years there has also been the demand for larger format tiles up to 330cm in length, whilst these can often look daunting to ship, we are well versed in shipping these into the UK and delivering these even to the most awkward delivery points using Moffatts and HIAB trucks.

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.

Groupage from Modena

We make daily collection from all tile’s suppliers in the Bologna region with twice weekly departures to the UK and transit time ranging from 4-6 days door to door. This is a consolidation service where multiple collections are consolidated in depot and shipped to the UK in one easy to manage shipments. We also offer a direct to site delivery solution including delivery via tail lift, HIAB or Moffat.

Containers from Modena

For any stone or tiles that require a more economical shipping solution we offer a containerised sea freight service using 20ft, 30ft, 40ft & 45ft containers utilising the multi-modal rail network throughout Italy and Europe. These containers can carry up to 28,000kg and we can tranship these goods in port to allow delivery via a standard artic truck or something smaller if required.

Express Freight from Modena

Back in 2015 we introduced our express freight from Modena for our tile and stone customers. In many cases our clients are up against tight lead times to get goods to site to finish a specific project, therefore we work with some the largest UK tile importers to make sure their specific requirements are met. We can offer 2, 3 and 4-day express services for anything from a single pallet to full loads. Most of our vehicle are tracked so we can give you up to the minute updates and our 24/7 freight team are always on hand to answer any questions you may have.
