Alpinea shipping was born in 2012 from the association of two individuals, both highly intent on pursuing common professional ideals. Though originally from different horizons, their shared common values of “work and excellence” brought them to jointly create the company. Their achievement: gaining client trust and satisfaction.

Based in the south of France, we ship goods from any of the major French or European ports (Fos-sur-mer, Bordeaux, Montoir-de-Bretagne, Le Havre, Dunkerque, Antwerp, Barcelona, Genoa). We offer a wide range of multimodal transportation solutions (Full Container Load (FCL), Less-than-Container Load (LCL), conventional load, break bulk, consolidated cargo, full trucks), which guarantees you the appropriate answer to the demands and needs of your specific goods.

As a small “human” size company, we are particularly reactive and flexible, which are two major advantages in today’s ever evolving international context. We ensure high quality physical and administrative follow up of all operations. Our strong involvement in specialized markets naturally translates into high quality physical and administrative follow up of all operations, which is something we are now recognized for by several large industrial groups.
