Outsourcing and in particular logistics only nowadays are going to be recognized as an opportunity to improve business performance and contain costs. Today ISS Palumbo can boast to have been chosen for more than 20 years as logistic provider by several prestigious industrial business.
In October 1990, following a process of corporate restructuring, Nuovo Pignone –GE of Massa awards the management of its integrated logistics (warehousing, transports, packaging, shipments, etc.) to Palumbo.
This agreement provides also for the recruitment by Palumbo of some temporarily laid off workers of Nuovo Pignone. This is one of the first times in Italy something like that happens, and this fact provokes strong reactions, also judicial issues, which would be all positively solved.
Since that, ISS Palumbo has non-stop increased its experience to carry out successfully, with the fundamental help of the customer, each stage of the logistic outsourcing.

Here follows detailed services
Inbound Service refers to all the activities preceding the arrival of the goods at the warehouse. Though the use of our specialised providers we can transit inbound goods more easily, reduce waiting times and improve performance.
Material Management activities include everything necessary for the correct management of materials on site, from the arrival of goods at the premises until the first stage of production. This includes; reception of goods, documents check, condition check, subdivision of cargo units and if necessary, labelling/tracking, handling and storage.
The Core is the main customer’s activity, the reason of its existence, the main target of its mission. This is the activity on which we think the customer should focus almost the totality of its attention and of its resources, leaving to specialized providers the management of the activities characterized by a minor added value. By this way we deem it possible to achieve both performance improvements and cost saving.
The Final Steps are the activities carried out immediately after the production stage, from the design and packaging required for the cargo, to the creation of essential documentation (picking lists, product marking and shipment documents, including customs formalities until the agreed point of delivery) and the handling of the final product.
The Outbound Service includes all the activities of study and research of the best technical/economic/executive solution according to the shipment customer’s needs. For this purpose ISS Palumbo boasts a wide network of collaborators and partner companies able to guarantee to the customer the best conditions for all the main kinds of transports, both domestic and international, both by sea and by air, both standard and abnormal.
