OVER A CENTURY OF EXCELLENCE
Franzosini’s history traces its roots back to 1845, when the company was founded in Italy as a shipping house. Through its unwavering commitment to excellence and attention to customer needs, Franzosini has earned a solid reputation in the transportation and logistics industry over time.
In 1929, Franzosini’s Swiss office was opened in Chiasso, marking the beginning of an international expansion that would lead the company to become a benchmark in the industry. It was born as an autonomous entity focused on developing international transportation services at home and abroad, consolidating its presence in the market and creating a strong link with tradition and excellence.
Since its inception, Franzosini has been distinguished by innovation and the adoption of new technologies. Even when horses were still used for some local transportation, the company sought to constantly improve its services by investing in more efficient and safer means of transportation. Over time, this approach to innovation has enabled Franzosini to meet the challenges posed by the evolution of the transportation and logistics industry while staying one step ahead of the competition.
Over the years, Franzosini has continued to grow and expand, opening offices in several European countries, including Italy, France, Monaco and the United Kingdom. This geographic expansion has enabled the company to serve an increasingly broad and diverse customer base, offering transportation solutions tailored to every need. In parallel with geographic expansion, the company has expanded its service offerings from simply transporting goods to managing the entire logistics chain, including customs operations and inventory management.
The constant pursuit of excellence and the desire to offer better and better services to clients have led Franzosini to invest in training its staff and improving internal processes. Over time, the company has developed a team of experienced professionals who work together to ensure the quality of services offered and contribute to the growth of the company.
Franzosini also pays attention to the environment and sustainability, as evidenced by the ISO 14001 certification obtained for environmental policies, as well as ISO 9001 certification for business and service management. This commitment is reflected in the choice of environmentally friendly means of transportation and the promotion of sustainable practices throughout the supply chain.
Today, Franzosini is an integral part of Tepoorten Group SA, an international holding company that owns several companies active in logistics, transportation, logistics real estate and digitization. With its own offices in Switzerland, Italy, France, Monaco and the United Kingdom, the group has further expanded its presence in the international market, consolidating its leading position in the transportation and logistics industry.
Despite its growth and evolution over time, Franzosini continues to maintain at its core the same core values that have made it an icon in the transportation and logistics industry: excellence, integrity and dedication to customer service. The company is proud of its history and roots dating back more than a century, but it is always looking ahead, ready to meet the challenges of the future and find new opportunities for growth and success.
Franzosini is committed to maintaining Swiss quality as the guiding thread of all its activities, offering international transportation services by road, rail, air and sea through a dense network of established correspondents on all continents. The company handles more than 70,000 shipments and transports annually in Switzerland, Europe and around the world, demonstrating its ability to meet the needs of a wide range of customers, from large industrial groups to small and medium-sized enterprises.
Franzosini’s story is an example of how a small company can grow and prosper over the years, thanks to a commitment to excellence, a passion for service and a willingness to adapt to the needs of an ever-changing market. This success story, which began over a century ago, is proof that attention to detail, innovation, and respect for the customer are values that never go out of style and continue to drive the company to new heights.
