EXPRESS GLOBAL GROUP

The origins

Our story began in 1999 when the Fratelli Cosulich Group decided to open Express S.r.l. a company dedicated to import & export customs operations and port services. It is no coincidence that the first two locations opened were in Naples and Genoa; Italian cities that represent important logistical hubs in the country and the Mediterranean.

The expansion

With the commitment and dedication of its people, the company grew year by year and extended its service offerings to include an extensive of international supply chain solutions.

The acquisition of Planet Cargo was a decisive moment in the Growth of Express Global. Based in Milan for many years Planet Cargo was a well-known forwarding company specialized in air transport and with a solid presence in the international market.

Thanks to the merger between these two companies and their different expertise, the Express Global project came to life as one of the most important groups in the international forwarding sector offering a full range of services by air, sea, land and rail transportation and logistics and customs operations.

The consolidation

The following years were years of growth both by organic expansion and by acquisition. Other companies became part of the Express Global Group and brought with them valuable resources, talented people and expertise enabling Express Global to expand Internationally.

With its own offices based in key locations including the United States, United Kingdom, China, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and Italy combined with the collaboration of several international networks, today Express Global guarantees its customers not only boundless coverage, but also the care, relationships and dedication that have always characterized Express Global.

New horizons

In the 2019 Express Global Group takes a new step ahead with the acquisition of Archimede Gruden, an important Italian shipping company operating all over the World. The high synergy between Archimede Gruden and the other companies being part of the Group is leading the entire Group to new targets and horizons.

Over the years we are proud to have been awarded certifications and awards and have achieved many personal milestones. The most important thing at Express Global is the spirit and passion that our team brings every day and the desire to face the challenges of International trade while delivering the highest level of service to our customers who entrust their shipments to us every single day.
