About us and how it all started …

It all started on May 6, 1984, when ALPI first opened its doors in Amsterdam. As part of Albini & Pitigliani Spa, renowned logistics service provider in Italy, we were able to obtain a strong position in the market. Our location was the first of many locations worldwide that followed in the years to come.

Meanwhile, a lot has changed, we moved to Zaandam in 2004 and that gave us a better starting position for the logistical needs of many of our clients. With great connections to main roads in the near vicinity, company owned (customs) warehouse of over 6,200 square meters and both sea- and airport at a short distance, we can meet almost all our clients needs.

We believe in practical solutions, customized to the needs of the client. To help us achieve our goals we rely on flexibility, short communication lines and working together with the customer. This is the most common thing in the world to us.

Whether you have 1 kg or 20,000 kg, import or export, a delivery to your neighbors or to the other side of the world, customs needs, a need for sorting of goods, repacking or any other imaginable service, ALPI is your partner.
