The opening of this latest location in Rome marks the third branch office to be opened by the Maurice Ward Group in Italy, making sure we reach the entire country from Milan, Turin and now also Rome.
We are located close to the Fiumicino Intercontinental Airport, a key airport for cargo-handling in Central and Southern Italy, guaranteeing a direct link with the entire world. In addition to air transport, sea transport is also available just a few kilometres away, through the port of Civitavecchia. Moreover, the motorway junction, currently in construction, will connect to the Centre of Rome and to the entire country. A true international hub.
Italy’s freight and logistics markets ranks relatively highly on a global scale. The country has a highly developed and efficient network, particularly in the Northern and Central regions and a large domestic and international market due to its strategic position in the center of Europe.

The first ever ‘cargo only’ flight was recorded in November 1910 in the USA, using a Wright Model B aeroplane that flew 65 miles carrying a package of silk. The business owner used the pioneering transport more as a PR stunt to celebrate the opening of his store, with the bundle of silk cut into individual pieces and glued onto souvenir postcards.
