Cop.a.v. was established in 1974 by 29 small companies operating with flat bed trailers and mainly carrying agricultural products. Recognizing the ISO containers represented a major opportunity for the future growth of national and international traffic they joined together to create a company which could respond to the demands they believed would follow. In 1989 Cop.a.v. opened its headquarters in Fiorenzuola dArda (Piacenza) which consists of an area of 27.500 square meters, warehousing for transhipment and storage of any type of material and the handling and storage of containers. In 2003 Cop.a.v. acquired a depot in Milano Rogoredo a strategic location from which to further develop its market cover and penetration. By prudent and flexible management and a clear demonstration of its dynamism and willingness to embrace change, Cop.a.v. is now an established market leader offering, not only road transport, but a wide range of logistical services to potential partners. With a modern and comprehensive fleet of 260 vehicles Cop.a.v. has the means to meet specific requirements and handles more than 300 containers per day. In addition to investing in vehicles, depots and handling equipment, Cop.a.v. also invests in the ongoing training and development of its staff with the aim of fully understanding customers needs and working with them to identify and implement beneficial change.
