The Arcese Group's company keeps consolidating and expanding its global network and lands in the USA
2019 is going to end with an important achievement for Ventana Serra. The Arcese Group’s company specialised in International freight forwarding by air and sea has announced the opening of a new branch in Miami, USA.
Ventana Serra keeps consolidating and expanding its global network. With this new branch, it marks its presence in the US entering new markets in which the company has developed a strong know-how – fashion, food & beverage, electronics, furniture and industry – in addition to the automotive sector.
Miami will be the main branch in North America, from where goods from and to Central and South America will be consolidated and forwarded. However, the goal is even more ambitious, as Silvano Cavallotto, General Manager of Ventana Serra, declared: “We want to further develop cross-border shipments between Asia, Europe and Central and South America, where we have offices in Brazil and Mexico. Moreover, our interest is to expand our range of action towards new markets such as Argentina, Chile, Peru, Paraguay and Ecuador.”
A goal shared by Umberto Cella, General Manager of the newly-established company in the USA, who added: “For us, the possibility to create synergy with the companies of the Arcese Group and thus relying on an integrated and consolidated logistics network at a European level is extremely important. At the same time, we aim at creating new synergies through Ventana Serra’s global partners to ensure growth in the sea freight.” Then, he ended: “So far, Ventana Serra had only a sales branch in Detroit. Now, the aim is to expand our presence in the USA by opening new branches in Miami, where I will be operating, and, in 2020, also in Los Angeles, where Andrea Fanti will be the General Manager, and Chicago.”
Ventana Serra has an annual turnover of about € 152 million and handles 5 million kilos of goods from and to the United States (air freight shipping). On a global level, they handle about 20 million kilos, in addition to about 90,000 TEUs of sea freight shipment. These figures are expected to increase with the global business-growth strategy that the company has been implementing for years.
