True to her favourite motto “Carpe Diem”, Francesca Fossati is great at seizing the moment: she did it a long time ago, when Alifood was at the very beginning, and she stayed with us for almost ten years. She did it again in 2014 when she joined our company for the second time, after other important work experiences. She keeps doing it every day now, bringing into her daily routine the remarkable capacity of always identifying the best option.
Francesca is our Logistics Department Specialist: she is in charge of selecting and managing the best logistics solutions for all our shipments. Considering that our goal is to offer a perfect service at the cheapest price available, she works hard every day in order to strike the perfect balance between our clients’ needs and allocated budgets.
Her thirty years’ experience in the import/export industry, together with her diploma in business consultancy and foreign languages, help her manage her hectic work days with the utmost professionalism. Precise and well-organized, Francesca usually starts her day by checking all her emails in order to provide a timely response to all the clients she deals with. Then she moves on to arranging all the shipments that – according to different needs and destinations – can either be road, sea or air freights. She is in charge of managing the entire process from quotations and bookings to tracking and invoicing. Thanks to her problem solving attitude, she always finds effective solutions to any complication that may occur.
Her ability in selecting the most cost-efficient options is very much appreciated by our clients as much as her fluency in English and her working knowledge of French and German. Very fond of travelling and a true music lover, Francesca has recently started a course to learn Japanese.
