[post_content] => Marcevaggi Group, a family-run service provider for logistics in the Mediterranean, is continuing to expand and evolve with the digitisation age. Led by Emanuele Remondini, the son of founder Mario Remondini, Marcevaggi has amassed more than 500 staff, more than 2,000 pieces of equipment and handles more than 3.5m tonnes of freight a year.
Divided into two sections that focus on specialised logistics – Star and Levorato Marcevaggi (LM) – the company is able to cater for and provide expertise across distinct markets. Star is the side of the business that handles chemical logistics, while LM manages oil and gas logistics. Markets continuously evolve and the whole Marcevaggi Group is championing flexibility and creativity to adapt and thrive – two traits it claims are very strong in Italian culture – as it seeks to improve on the €140m turnover it recorded in 2018.
Over the last five years, Star has focused on its road sector and began renewing its tank container fleet in order to provide enhanced integrated solutions. This was a response to the fleet age and improving maintenance, but also to take advantage of developments in road technology. Since the start of 2019, Star has been investing in LNG trucks for its domestic markets. Across Europe there is a growing momentum in switching vehicles from diesel to electric/LNG fuel, something Marcevaggi Group believes will transform the European economy and is a factor that logistics companies need to take advantage of.
Respect for nature and the environment is now a cornerstone of Marcevaggi culture, so much so that this respect is being displayed on its newest trucks. Over at LM, the vehicles host banners of fluffy clouds on pristine blue skies, while Star’s vehicles will be sporting luscious green hills from 2020.
Two years ago, Star entered a joint venture with PIR Group, a leading tank storage business in Italy. Thanks to this partnership, Star and PIR are growing their portfolio of services to the chemical industry, particularly for the Italian market. New developments include providing several solutions in intermodal and road transport, intermediate storage, sea and inland storage and rail car transport spanning all of Europe. Star has a particularly strong standing in Italy, Poland and Turkey thanks to its own direct European branches. The group also holds minority shares in the main international railways and is investing in shifting to rail transport for intermodal projects.
Furthermore, facilities and offices have been renewed to nurture the best work environment and attract talent from across the industry. This has been coupled with strong development in management in order to grow the size of business units. Star boasts a 98 per cent SQAS score and is dedicated to improving HSSE standards in all its business units. According to Marcevaggi Group, even though improving HSSE is becoming a “must” for the industry, there is a definitive value in improving HSSE for those working in the supply chain and this needs to be recognised.
Finally, Star is following suit with the new digitisation progresses that are sweeping the industry by investing in its own IT ERP system. This system is connected to the new open standard platform for EDI connections and track and trace software.
