Today we are celebrating more than 25 years of collaboration with our depot in Sicily, Florali. This depot is not only located on an Island in Italy, but also has a view of the volcano Etna.
Florali started in 1994 with commercial activities in horti, logistic activities and producing Bougainvillea. The start was In Siracusa and in 2006 they moved to Giarre. They started working with Container Centralen (CC) in 1995 and were the first depot in Sicily for the original CC Containers.
With a depot on an island, logistics in particular is a major challenge they face on a daily basis. They are looking forward to a bright future together with CC, in which they hope to off more direct services directly from their depot.
“We like to work with CC because of the service we can offer trough CC to our partners in Sicily and the collaboration also gives us a good insight in the movements of the market.” – Florali, here the full interview:
