Savino Del Bene expanding in USA
Savino Del Bene (SDB), a Florence (Italy)-based logistics and freight forwarding specialist, expanded substantially in the USA in Q1/2018.
Five new facilities were inaugurated in Cincinnati OH, Nashville TN, Philadelphia PA, Phoenix AZ and Kansas City MO. The latter site was obtained through the acquisition of a local freight forwarder.
SDB opened its first foreign subsidiary in the USA in 1977. The new US branches are in addition to 14 existing offices already present on American territory.
The new offices underline SDB’s international expansion strategy, which proved favourable financially. The Italian service provider recorded gross revenue of EUR 1.5 billion in 2017, an increase of 23% compared to 2016.
Today, SDB is well known internationally thanks to its 200 operating offices and over 4,000 employees worldwide. (mw)
