In 1972, after many years on the road as a driver, Giuseppe Chiggiato decided to risk everything and become an entrepreneur in the hauling business — on his side he had a long experience and the conviction that he could succeed through honesty, and by simply delivering on his promises, by putting the best of his knowledge and of the available solutions into his work.
These are not words, they’re a compass.
And with this compass, having started from the Paduan countryside, we have come so far: nowadays we are in Danzig and Marrakech.
“One of dad’s greatest teachings, engraved to this day in my mind, was to always treat the people you’re working with well: I believe that’s the only way to keep on your side people that want to work with you, and not just for you”, says Luca Chiggiato.
It would have been easy to pick the shortcut of compromise: but those who pick the easier path don’t always reach their destination in one piece. We chose to keep on the high road: transparency, honesty and respect allowed us to surround ourselves with a team that makes us proud, and with trusted external partners.We haven’t felt the need to change our course since.
Through the years we have gradually upgraded our motor pool and our branches in Piombino Dese (near Padua) and Barga (near Lucca): in these days we are finishing building our new Piombino Dese headquarters, where we carry out all our storage and distribution with state of the art technology: resulting in automatised warehousing, and leaving us more time to deal with all the minutiae that put
themselves between a shipment and the best way to deliver it — quicker, better and safer.
Moreover, our presence in Veneto and Toscana, two important Italian industrial hubs, will allow for harmonious, significant
growth in the next years.
Now we are enthusiastic about this anniversary, which to us is more than a birthday candle: 45 mean a lot of things, among which one of the most important is having witnessed the families of our team members grow along with ours, creating a sustainable qualitative and quantitative economic development aimed at the long term.
