Bolliger – the giant awakes

May 22, 2014
Robin Celino has recently taken over the role of Branch Director for Bolliger in London. While stumbling around the M25, Steve Jordan dropped into its office near Heathrow to find out what’s new at this icon of the European moving industry.

Robin has spent his whole working life in the moving industry both in management and at the sharp end as a driver and packer.  His CV includes names such as Trans Euro, Four Winds, Crown, Interdean, Luxfords and, most recently, BTR in Luton.   

Bolliger itself closed in London for a time.  This new role at the resurrected company is designed to bring together the whole of the Bolliger network – Rome, Milan, Lugano, Florence, Barcellona, Madrid and now London – to become a more coherent, effective group. 

Corporate business has always been important to Bolliger, and still is of course, but Robin particularly wants to promote its trade groupage service throughout Europe.  “People know us as an Italian company,” he said, “but we provide a service from and to every part of Europe.  We have eight vehicles permanently running the service and others that we can call upon as the business increases.”  In the UK, Bolliger has receiving depots in Stevenage and Staines on Thames.

Bolliger has been a household name in the international moving industry for 100 years.  Perhaps it’s not well known for trade groupage now but, if Robin has his way, it soon will be.  “What makes us different?  It’s caring, it’s quality and it’s doing the job well,” said Robin.  “It’s my job to get the Bolliger name back where it should be.”

Certainly Bolliger has been something of a sleeping giant for a while.  Now though, it seems as though the giant is stirring.
