Pesenti Trasporti & Logistica, a family business with more than 60 years of history in the world of transport, began its activity with a fleet of five owned vehicles, which today comprises 25 tractors as well as 50 trailers and semi-trailers in order to adapt to different types of loads.
Pesenti has successfully evolved over the years. From its origins as a haulage company, it has expanded its service portfolio to include logistics, handling and distribution activities, serving important national and international clients.
“Preserving the strong roots and values that have long propelled our company forward is paramount to us. This commitment was a key factor in our decision to welcome Rhenus as a new shareholder, as we believe they can not only safeguard these principles but also inject fresh momentum into the dynamic environment that characterises our company,” says Benedetto Pesenti, Managing Director of Pesenti Trasporti & Logistica.
“With the acquisition, signed on 10 November, we are solidifying our position in an area characterised by a high density of industry and production in Lombardy, recognised as the engine of the Italian economy, contributing to over 20% of the country’s GDP, particularly in the Bergamo area,” says Guglielmo Davide Tassone, Managing Director of Rhenus Logistics S.p.A. “Both companies are deeply committed to customer satisfaction, and we believe it is crucial to maintain the existing balance to ensure market stability.”
Pesenti Trasporti & Logistica Srl will retain its name and organisational structure with Benedetto Pesenti as its Managing Director.
