We’re Back! Italy to Canada ocean consolidation service

     Italy & Canada flags

After a three year absence, we are once again operating our weekly ocean consolidation service from Italy to Montreal and Toronto.  Universal is no stranger to this trade lane, having previously offered this reliable service for over 30 years to Canadian importers.  With the volume resurgence on this route, it was natural to start back up again.

Have Italian ocean freight requirements?  You’ll be in good hands with Universal’s proven track record of providing quality service.  For convenience and cost savings, your shipments can be received at any of our Italian freight receiving depots; Milano, Bologna, Vicenza and Livorno.  Our Italian partner has a competitive network of local truck carriers, who can pick up shipments from suppliers located in any part of Italy.  The loading of the consolidation container is performed in Livorno and delivered to the nearby Port of Genoa for the vessel sailing to Canada.

Upon arrival in Montreal or Toronto, your shipments can be delivered locally or to any destination across Canada.  In addition, receive expedited customs clearance in advance of shipment arrival when you also use our Canadian customs brokerage services.

Don’t arrange your next ocean freight shipment from Italy until you have discovered what Universal Logistics has to offer.

For more information, contact Debbie McGuire, Manager – Freight Solutions.
