Shipping from the U.S. to Italy
Italy has a more than 7000 km of coastline and its position in the center of the Mediterranean makes it a dominant point for international cargo shipping and transport services by both air and sea into Europe from the south.
The country is also composed of 15 regions or states and 5 autonomous regions. The autonomous regions all have a greater number of residents who speak either German, Slovene, French and Italian.
Each state may have additional language requirements for import documentation, so be mindful.
