Merger of the GALARDI Group with the NAXCO Group

We are pleased to announce the merger of the GALARDI Group (Italy) with the NAXCO Group (France).

5 September 2023

Founded in the 50s and headquartered in Prato near Florence, the freight forwarding group specializes in logistics, international road haulage, sea and air freight, and customs, with sales of €70 million and 120 employees in 11 offices in Italy, Portugal and France.

The Galardi group has carried out 330,000 road transports for industrial customers, chemical products and perishable goods, and manages major customers in the fashion, haute couture clothing and accessories sectors.

The Naxco group, historically present in the maritime sector, initiated the development of international road transport 2 years ago.

This deal brings us a major enrichment in logistics and international road transport, and we are delighted to welcome a team that shares the same enthusiasm, human values and team spirit as our group’s, to offer our customers the very best in terms of service.

Galardi’s name, management and teams remain unchanged, and our cooperation will enable us to offer our customers the full range of transport and logistics services, drawing on the synergies and geographical complementarities of our groups.

NAXCO group will achieve a consolidated turnover of €280 million, with 560 employees in 50 offices in 14 countries.
