The Group was founded more than seventy years ago by the Cavaliere del lavoro* Gaetano D’Alesio (*Honorary Knighthood for services to the industry). His sons Antonio and Nello continue to run the firm with the collaboration of the third generation represented by Gaetano, Antonio, Mauro, Francesco and Elisa. The Group’s activities are based on maritime shipping and associated services. The maritime transportation is carried out by the ships of the Company fleet. The associated activities consist of the storage handling of oil products as well as the marketing of pro-bunker products.
The D'Alesio Group fleet is made up of tankers and bulk carriers that cover a wide range of commercial demands with tonnage up to 56.000 dwt and provide services of a high technical standard throughout the world. The accurate maintenance and the continuous renewal aimed at ensuring the use of the best technologies available are the characteristics that distinguish the fleet.
Furthermore, the D'Alesio Group operates out of the port of Livorno with the Sintermar S.p.A. terminal, which covers a privately owned surface of 120.000 sq. metres and can carry out all the cargo loading, unloading and storage activities of containers and of various incoming and outgoing goods. It is equipped with a 550 metre quay, covered warehouses of 3000 sq. metres, maintenance and repair workshops, with 3 trastainers along with a considerable number of smaller means.
