From strategic locations and together with our worldwide network of agents and partners, we quickly, smoothly and cost-effectively take care of your transport. From full loads (FTL), part loads (LTL), pallets, intermodal to special transport.
Although San Marino is a small country within Europe, it is considered the oldest republic in the world. It has a population of approximately 34,000 and is located in the Emilia-Romagna region of northern Italy. It borders the regions of Marche and Umbria and is situated along the Adriatic coast. The country is well-connected to the road and railway network, making it easily accessible. With Rimini Airport in Italy just 20 minutes away, (international) transportation can be arranged quickly and effectively at a low cost.
The economy of San Marino has developed well in recent years. Its per capita gross domestic product (GDP) is higher than many other European countries, and the unemployment rate is consequently very low. The main economic sector is the service sector, followed by industry and trade. San Marino is also a popular tourist destination, especially for visitors from Italy and neighbouring countries.
San Marino naturally maintains close trade relations with Italy, its largest trading partner and only direct neighbour, as well as with EU member states, the US, China, and other countries worldwide. Imports mainly consist of machinery, electrical engineering, motor vehicles and foodstuffs, while exports primarily include textiles, electronic equipment and souvenirs.
For San Marino transport, it is only logical for you as a company – together with Seacon as your professional partner – to take your logistics to a higher level. On this page, you can read more about our transport solutions for San Marino.
Important transport routes San Marino and your benefits
Although San Marino is one of the smallest countries in the world, its transport routes play an important role, especially in connection with nearby Italian cities.
Road transport in San Marino is one of the primary transportation options for the movement of goods and merchandise within the country. With a total length of over 150 kilometres, it offers a large number of roads in a small area, connecting the main cities and regions. The road network in San Marino is in excellent condition and is regularly maintained and expanded. It consists of a combination of main roads and smaller roads that traverse the picturesque mountains and valleys of the country. One of the main roads in San Marino is the SS72, also known as "Strada Statale 72" or "Strada delle Repubbliche". It is the main road that connects San Marino to Italy, running from the border to the capital, San Marino.
Although San Marino does not have its own railway network, the country's small size means it is very close to Italy's very well-developed rail transport network. Most Italian cities are easily accessible, particularly from Rimini, allowing for further transportation to the rest of Europe. Intermodal transport is thus also possible.
The same applies to sea freight in San Marino. While the country is not directly connected to the sea, it is located near the important port of Rimini in Italy, providing convenient access to major European seaports such as Rotterdam and Hamburg.
San Marino does not have an international airport of its own, but it is still well-connected to international air cargo traffic. The country has an agreement with the nearby Rimini-San Marino Airport, which offers regular cargo flights to and from major economic centres such as Frankfurt, Paris, Dubai and Hong Kong. This enables companies to transport goods quickly and efficiently worldwide via air freight.

Groupage San Marino - LCL and LTL
The term LTL (Less Than Truck Load) is used in freight transport to indicate that only part of the available cargo space of the truck is filled. In the logistics industry, it is therefore common to combine several partial loads at one loading point or to add a partial load. In short, groupage or LTL is therefore the merging of several smaller loads into one larger load. This optimises the use of the freight container during road freight.
The abbreviation LCL stands for Less than Container Load and in sea freight refers to shipments that do not fill an entire container and are combined with other general cargo in a consolidated container. LCL transport mainly offers price advantages and some benefits in practical handling and stowage. For general cargo, only proportionate transport costs are incurred for the use of the container volume.
Full loads San Marino - FCL or FTL
The abbreviation FCL (Full Container Load) is used in sea freight for full container loads. Unlike LCL: a load that only partially fills a container. With FCL loads, the container is loaded by a shipper and unloaded at the destination by a consignee.
With an FTL delivery (Full Truck Load), the shipment fills the entire available cargo space. The truck transports this shipment to its destination without reloading. This is for one recipient. This completely utilises the truck’s transport capacity.
Fast delivery is the main advantage of FTL. This is because there is no need for transhipment or extra route planning to different recipients. The truck drives directly to one destination. It is the most effective method of transporting goods by road to a final destination.

Incoterms®: Protect your international trade with San Marino
As a global logistics chain director, Seacon Logistics deals a lot with Incoterms®. Although we are not involved in the commercial agreements between buyer and seller, we are often consulted about the dangers and consequences of the various Incoterms® before a transaction is concluded. In practice, many companies still underestimate the risks.
To ensure that contractual formulas in the trade of goods are interpreted equally by buyer and seller, we have created a white paper and an infographic.
Important additional information: Public holidays, driving bans and local details
As an independent state, despite its small size and remote location, San Marino has developed into an economically successful country. This is partly due to its well-developed road network. Although San Marino is not a member of the European Union, it has an agreement with the EU and is, therefore, subject to the same customs regulations. However, there are some regulations to be observed when transporting goods in the country:
- Customs regulations: You may need an EU licence or CEMT licence for international transportation. Bilateral permits between San Marino and third countries may also be relevant. Seacon Logistics is happy to assist you with these requirements.
- Driving bans: There are no general driving bans in San Marino. However, there may be special regulations in certain regions connecting the country to Italy.
- Tolls: No tolls are levied on the roads of San Marino. This does not apply to the connecting Italian highways, where tolls are charged.
- Transport to Italy: San Marino maintains close relations with its neighbouring country, Italy. There are specific regulations regarding transportation between the two countries. Would you like to know more about this? Please contact us.
