How to guarantee efficient and customised shipments for the ceramic sector

In-depth knowledge of a sector is the key to guaranteeing excellent results: this is what happens, for example, when we handle national and international transport for the ceramics sector, backed by years of experience in the sector, knowing its characteristics, needs and criticalities.

Moreover, our operational headquarters are located in Modena, close to the most important ceramic district in Italy between Sassuolo, Formigine and Fiorano: with 135 companies and almost 20,000 employees, it is, in fact, the heart of Italian floor and wall tile production, internationally recognised for its Made in Italy quality.

In addition, in order to stay up-to-date with the typical needs of ceramic companies, we participate in national and international trade fairs of the sector, so that we know their needs first-hand.

The fundamental elements for handling tiles and ceramic material

Load optimisation. The flow of international shipments for the ceramic tile sector is designed to optimise each load: the collection of tiles in the Sassuolo area and their transport by swap bodies or containers to Northern Europe (especially Germany, Benelux, France and Russia) is complementary to the return journey, which is optimised with the same containers loaded with clay and raw materials destined for the Modenese ceramic manufacturers.

Careful handling of goods. The handling of raw materials (primarily clays) and finished products (tiles and wall tiles) requires special attention to ensure efficiency and a high level of service. To do this, Furlog offers both direct road and intermodal rail transport services, via containers or swap bodies, to/from all European countries and to the East (including Russia, CIS countries, China).

Choosing the right means of transport. For long distances, the train is the perfect compromise between service efficiency and cost optimisation, as well as the means of transport that allows significant savings in CO2 emissions compared to other types of transport.

For shorter distances or in the case of specific requirements, transport by truck is an excellent solution to consider. In this regard, Furlog offers an express road service in 24/48h up to 1,200 kg or 4.5 m load length, thanks to the use of trucks for complete loads or groupage, with distribution also of single pallets throughout Italy and Europe. All this, guaranteeing high safety standards on the road and a complete service for optimising and managing shipments.

Complementary services. Such as continuous shipment tracking, complete customs assistance, multilingual customer service, and the possibility of all risks insurance.
