Rizzo Gelindo was taught how to drive a truck by his brother , ultimately leading him to founding the Rizzo Gelindo Autotrasporti in 1958. During the company's first years, he drove and delivered all over Italy, despite only owning one truck (type ESATAU).
In 1978 Eugenio, Gelindo’s oldest son, who was also devoted to trucks, started his career in the company. In the following years the other two sons, Fortunato and Gianfranco, followed their older brother Eugenio. Time after time, the company grew in small but considerable steps.
In 1987 the Rizzo Trans KG was founded as a transport agency, then it became a transport company.
In 1991 the management had to be restructured, because of a drastic change: the death of Gianfranco.
Following this event, the company Rizzo Gelindo was replaced by the Rizzo Trans OHG and was complemented by small partner companies. From that moment on, the company started going international.
In 1996 the company turned into a "limited company". The number of trucks grew significantly and was therefore able to offer better customer service in various different European countries.
In 1998 the branch in Maishofen (Austria) was founded.
The 1st March 2007 was and still is an important date for the company. The founder of the company, Rizzo Gelindo, died, which was a huge change for every person involved.
After being in this sector for over 60 years, our company counts more than 30 employees, over 25 trucks, more than 35 trailers and many clients and supporters.
