Italy: the introduction of new services beyond normal logistics services and the use of mobile digital and communication technologies that cover the whole of Europe are the right and active response to the crises and business declines in recent months.

Challenge 1 – BREXIT

Starting January 1st, 2021, goods exported to the UK are subject to customs controls and procedures because Great Britain is no longer part of the European Union. For many companies trading across Europe, this can be a new and unknown complication that hampers business. While it is true that customs duties have not yet been applied, as agreed in the last-minute Trade Agreement between the European Union and the United Kingdom signed on Christmas Day, a new administrative burden is inevitable.

Thanks to more than 30 years of expertise in the UK market Ambrogio Intermodal can handle all new customs requirements and the shipment of large traffic volumes even in this post-Brexit scenario. It is the customer-oriented approach and experience that helps the team of their experts does managing shipments to the UK on daily basis.

Challenge 2 – Digitalization & mobile technologies

The Award should value and reward managers and companies that bring significant innovation to the logistics sector.
