Different requests and solutions: distribution
When the transport and warehouse logistics have been carried out, we arrive at the last mile of distribution, that is the distance that separates the goods from the delivery point.
The solutions we offer are different for each company and each market, since the last mile takes on different characteristics, depending on whether the transfer of goods to the final destination joins a series of services or not.
We can in fact carry out the distribution starting from our logistics hub/branch or withdraw directly from the customer’s warehouse/production site. In this case we are only entrusted with the final part of the transport: delivery. In both cases, distribution is of fundamental importance: it is through this service that the goods finally reach their destination.
The temperature-controlled distribution of products manages to cover Italy also thanks to DIF, of which we are the owners and first affiliates. Together with other companies we are organized in the collection and distribution in the individual provinces, with an important capillarity.

In addition to supplying large-scale distribution, transport usually performed with large vehicles – primary distribution – we also manage secondary distribution – or widespread distribution – with commercial vehicles.
We reach the whole national territory through a punctual organisation of platforms and branches that communicate daily with the headquarters in Montoro (AV).
In Europe with FTL and LTL services thanks to connections that connect Italy with the main European countries.
... and for distribution in the city
It serves to complete the widest possible offer. Distribution with FUSO and Sprinters, and in general with commercial vehicles, arises upstream of a more complete service that sees us increasingly present throughout the supply chain with a mix of solutions that combine transport, storage and distribution capacity up to customer domicile.
Vehicles for every destination
The distribution service is realised thanks to the availability of a fleet equipped for every need. Commercial vehicles are used for distribution based on the type of delivery and the destination area.
Sprinters are intended for urban distribution. A light commercial vehicle, small in size but with a high load volume, so as to reach the end customer quickly and on time.
FUSO Canter Eco Hybrid
These hybrid vehicles make it possible to exploit the power supply in city centres and the Euro 6 diesel supply in regional transport. A highly technological vehicle to which distribution in ZTL, small and large urban centres, is entrusted.
