Compagnia Merci Aeree (CMA) was born from the enterprise of “H. Coe & Clerici S.p.a.”, IATA (International Air Traffic Association) Agent since 1958, that in 1970 decided to create a new company specialized in freight transport, using the skills of Alitalia’s General Sales Agent.
From “H. Coe & Clerici S.p.a” wares division Compagnia Merci Aeree acquired the operative staff, the know-how and every prerogative for being Alitalia’s “GSA and Handling Agent”.
For almost sixty years now, CMA has been employed as Alitalia General Sales Agent at Cristoforo Colombo Airport of Genoa.
In freight transport business, sixty years is a very long time and is a warrantee of reliability and prestige.
CMA has faced the business challenges related to technological evolution and market globalization, conquering a key position with an innovative and dynamic business policy that make it a solid and winning company.
In 1998 Aldo Valtolina, employee in “H. Coe & Clerici S.p.a” since 1968, acquired the majority share of CMA; in 2000 he acquired the 100% and became president, leading the company with his son Simone Valtolina, CMA CEO.
Compagnia Merci Aeree pursued an ever-rising trend year by year, reaching important and prestigious goals in international air transport business. The most important is the creation, in 1991, of Aviatrans Italia, the Italian-Russian combined company born from the partnership with ATRAN – Cargo Airlines of Moscow.
