The innovation stages

  • 1986

    An important step was the merger of two competing companies active in the container transportation sector: Auta Container Service S.p.A. and Marocchi S.p.A.
    A new reality was born with a great development plan in the container industry.

  • 1987

    We expanded our network to the main Italian inland terminals

  • 1991

    We launched the Padua branch, we increased our Italian network and entered the intermodal transport system becoming an MTO (Multimodal Transport Operator).

  • 1992

    We developed the range of services offered introducing the FTL transport (Full truck Load) both nationally and internationally.

  • 1996

    We were the first in Italy to introduce the multifunctional trailers for the transportation of containers measuring 20,30,40 feet, with the same “extendable” semi-trailer.

  • 1997-2000

    We developed terminal container operations by creating a network of depots in Trieste, Genoa, Venice, Padua and Leghorn. Our activities were mainly focused on Shipping Lines and were strongly integrated within the transportation of containers. We broadened our logistics activities building infrastructures in Padua, Trieste and Udine.

  • 2004

    First Italian transport Enterprise to use the “cell based” tracking system with the collaboration of TIM SpA. The plan was officially presented at the Infomobility event in Turin in 2004.

  • 2005

    Launch of Portogruaro Interporto S.p.A. (subsidiary)

    Globalization of our markets with the creation of companies in Hungary and Slovenia.

  • 2006

    The satellite-tracking plan entirely developed in-house, evolves by integrating the GPS technology from our back office software to the truck’s onboard computer.

  • 2007

    The release of the Track&Trace portal, allowed our Clients to instantly know where their cargo was at all times. Autamarocchi had a crucial role in launching and evolving the National Logistics Platform of the Ministry for Infrastructures and Transport collaborating with UirNet SpA.

  • 2008

    The “Green” policy of Autamarocchi started, revealing the CO2 emissions and their reduction program.
    The “Autamarocchi Academy” was launched to train drivers to achieve safer and more economical driving.

  • 2009-2010

    Autamarocchi lines up the largest Italian fleet whose vehicles are equipped with GenSets providing electrical power to reefer containers. We were the first to install GenSets on tractors and our warehouses were fully trained and certified to perform maintenance procedures.

  • 2011

    On board all of our vehicles we installed OBCs (on board computer) to integrate them with the IT system to control the transport process. Developed on the Blackberry smartphone platform where the on board printer is also connected.

  • 2012

    The Control Room was launched, the innovative control room which, with its 8-meter videowall allows to constantly monitor the whole fleet guaranteeing the highest service and security standards.

  • 2013

    First and only Company in Italy to undersign a voluntary agreement with the Ministry of Environment to monitor and reduce the damaging CO2 emissions. Aware of our social responsibility but also that a virtuous company pollutes less and wastes less.

    “Autamarocchi Logistica Doo” was set up in Rijeka, Croatia, in a growing port destined to carry out an important role in the Northern Adriatic towards the Central European markets.

  • 2014

    Version 2.0 of the Control Room was introduced where it is possible to monitor routes in real time and to analyze the waiting times at the entrance to terminals. Launched new special services, like the transport of high value and high risk merchandise (HVHR). “Pharma” special services which combine the considerable experience in the transport of Reefer containers with the HVTT (high value theft targeted), in compliance with laws of the two sectors, while still offering “customized” services to our clients.

  • 2015

    The presence in the central European markets grew. After Hungary and Slovenia, Autamarocchi Gmbh was launched in Graz, Austria. A network which completes the “North Adriatic Gate”, project dedicated to central Europe through a transport network linking it to the ports of Trieste, Koper and Rijeka.

  • 2017

    The “Android” revolution started, to manage communication between the Control Room and our drivers who are now equipped with a new OBC (on board computer) based on smartphone HW and Android SW. The new system allows, among other things, digital signature by recipient, the transmission of pictures and documents and acts as back up for the tracking system and still has on board printing of documents.

    An important change of the fleet with extremely modern vehicles and all in class Euro 6. 120 vehicles in one year and amongst these the first IVECO STRALIS NP (Natural POWER) vehicles fed by liquid natural gas, truly efficient in reducing emissions.
    Thanks to its policy for environmental protection, Autamarocchi has won the Green Award prize at the“Italian Terminal and Logistics Awards” in Piacenza.

    FTL transport is increasingly more intermodal. Not only railway with its new “Huckepack” type semi-trailers, but also “Short Sea” to connect Southern Italy and the Mediterranean to Northern Europe. The network of the container depots grew with the opening of the Pioltello Terminal (Milan) and the Pontenure HUB (Piacenza).

  • 2018

    During the first few months of the year, the “Android” plan was completed and all drivers were given a smartphone with the company App. The purchase of another 20 Iveco LNG tractors ensured Autamarocchi became the biggest LNG fleet in Italy. Autamarocchi, through the integration of its own ICT systems with those of its own clients, became the standard-bearer of the 4.0 logistics.
