Arcese Cosulich Ireland Ltd is a joint venture between Arcese and Fratelli Cosulich, world leaders in transportation, freight-forwarding and shipping services. The combined consolidated turnover of the two parent companies is in excess of 1.5 bn €.
Thw Company was set up in 2007 originally as Fratelli Cosulich Ireland by a team of experienced Italian freight-forwarders with extensive knowledge of both the Italian and the Irish market.
Thanks to the prestige that the Fratelli Cosulich brand commands internationally, it was relatively easy for the newly born Dublin office to become well established in the Irish market.
The arrival of Arcese in 2009, Italy's largest privately owned transport company, was an important factor in ensuring stable growth for the Company, even during a time of great economic challenges on a global level. The newly formed joint venture helped Arcese Cosulich emerge as one of Ireland's leaders in transport services from and to Italy.
By 2010 Arcese Cosulich had expanded its services beyond Italy, to include regular departures from France, Spain, Germany and Benelux both of general and temperature-controlled cargo, making it into a one-stop shop for many companies in the food industry importing dry and perishable goods by road into Ireland and the UK.
In October 2012 Arcese Cosulich launched the first intermodal groupage service from Italy, filling what we believed was a gap in our range of services for all those shipments that are allowed to travel more slowly by virtue of their not being urgent using a cheaper mode of transportation. With this idea of "slow freight" we aim to make our own little contribution to the emergence of a green and sustainable global economy .
