International maritime shipments: versatile and tailor-made Avion services.

Shipping by sea is a flexible and advantageous solution for those who entrust their cargo to Avion. The management of the service starts even before the goods leave, with our team taking care of everything from the booking of the container right up to collection and delivery, and, on request, fulfilment of administrative procedures on behalf of the customer. Optimized sea shipping results in significant savings and supports the business growth of our customers.

We organize the international sea shipping of various product categories, using operators with specialist skills in the maritime field and special equipment for each commodity.

Through partnerships with the leading international shipping companies, we offer personalized planning of ship-loads and transport via the main European and non-European commercial routes.
For the storage and deposit of containers arriving in Italy, Avion has its own reserved areas at the ports of Genoa, Venice and Cassano Magnago (Varese).
