Aloschi & Bassani joining forces

Aloschi Bros and Bassani Group have formed a joint-venture under the brand Aloschi & Bassani. The new company will offer Tour Operator, Ground Handling and Port Agency services to Cruise lines at all Italian ports.

The two companies have been working closely in the past 15 years and the industry has come to a point where synergies in quality, cost control and volume buying power with suppliers have become a key element, an Aloschi & Bassani statement reads.

'This was the right time for us to join forces with the aim to become more competitive but also increase the benefits to our customers and principals' - say the pair of brothers, Adolfo and Alex Aloschi, and Filippo and Francesco Olivetti.

Under the new jv, the Bassani team will operate services in the Eastern coast of Italy through its offices in Trieste, Venice, Ravenna and Bari. At the same time the Aloschi team will look after the Western coast through its offices in Livorno, Civitavecchia, Rome and Naples.

Sicily and Sardinia will be covered centrally with the support of dedicated teams with offices located in Messina, Cagliari and Alghero.

Port Agency service will be handled by the Venice office acting as the central hub, coordinating an exclusive network of experienced cruise agents throughout Italian ports.

The new website will be online soon, with all the details about ports, services, destinations and much more.
