SAVE - Services and Logistics

SAVE was founded in 1987 to distribute the Gazzetta Ufficiale, the biweekly official gazette of the Italian state dedicated to “COMPETITIONS and EXAMS”.

An office in Viale Trastevere and a small wharehouse of about 500 sqm between Via Tiburtina and the GRA (Rome Ring Road): this is how SAVE began after the postal decentralization. Publishers needed to shorten their delivery times for their  publications purchased by postal subscription. These publications were delivered to the regional offices of the recipients by SAVE.

After the Ministerial Act in 1997 (28/3), publishers who took advantage of the postal decentralization were granted a discount on postal fees, authorising deliveries to 190 offices situated throughout the national territory

SAVE has handled over 50,000 tons per year of collected  goods and sorted over 85,000 pallets per year, delivered by its own means, for 120 publishers and 400 newspapers. Among its customers are:

  • Class Editori                (Class Publishers)
