Storia

Viglienzone Adriatica belongs to the Viglienzone Group which has been active in the field of international forwardings for over 90 years.

The Group was established in Genoa in 1924, named after its founder Luigi Silvio Viglienzone and had immediate commercial success.

In the course of a few years its business was developed through a network of affiliates with offices in Leghorn, Ravenna, Venice, Trieste and Rjeka.

By the second half of the 1930's, Viglienzone was a flourishing and successful organisation with a highly developed network of branches throughout Italy.

After the Second World War the Company developed its activities further and, in 1961, Viglienzone Adriatica SpA was founded, strengthening and expanding its position in the international forwarding field.

After over 50 years of activity, the firm has reached a leading position in the market, especially with regard to agri-food products of which today it handles an important market share, particularly in the ports of Ravenna and Venice.

Viglienzone has progressively built up an extensive network of Italian branches and of foreign affiliates, as well as agencies and representatives in several countries throughout the world and has broadened its operational horizons:. from customs services to insurance services, from brokerage to shipping agency, in the field of liquid products, in the activities of inspections and monitoring, both in the agri-food and industrial sector, as well as in rail logistics.

Within the strategic field of the inspections, the company is highly recognized on the European scene and acts on account of AG.E.A., of E.C., of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, of FAO and the World Food Programme, as well as of major international trading companies.

Thanks to the long term established relationships with both national and international rail companies, the rail logistics sector is in considerable growth and has set up an important network of connections from the main agri-food ports and storage areas toward the internal rail connected warehouses and external connections (particularly from Hungary, Croatia and France).
