About us

The company was founded in 1988 by Captain Carlo Viola to serve the transport needs of Industrial Clients and Global Forwarders.

Kestrel Italia is the agent in Italy for heavy lift carriers Jumbo Shipping and Thorco Shipping A/S, well known in the market for meeting any transportation challenges.
Our main activity is centred around “super heavy lift” cargo and project co-ordination.

As part of our service to our Clients
we provide each movement with cargo-supervision by our own experienced team, devising stow and securing plans in the office then attending on the quay.

To cover our clients needs, when specialized tonnage is not required, we are able to utilize the tonnage of our many other ship owner friends which allows us to service economically, a wide range of clients whether their cargo is for one voyage or an extended contract. All shipments receive the same careful attention.

Due to several projects undertaken in the Russian – Siberia and Caspian region in the last few years, we have successfully started a partnership with Volgo Baltic Logistics, which has enabled us to offer a full range of transport services on inland water ways, both for sea-river vessels and barges.

The destinations of these projects in Russia/Siberia/Caspian which have been subject to severe weather conditions and tight time scheduling, have given us considerable experience in dealin with these demands.
