Southern Italy is an area with a rich and wide variety of Agri-food products, with high potentiality for growth and internationalisation for those products which are of high quality, have supply chain certification and are a well-known brand abroad. Nevertheless, with reference to logistics, there are several problematic issues that policy makers and business operators have to address. Considering that proper logistics management can improve the competitiveness of Agri-food firms in Southern Italy, this paper analyses three firms in the Campania region which are renowned for their excellence - specialising in various food categories (pasta, wine and mozzarella) - based on a theoretical framework of the relevant literature. Crossanalysis allows us to analyse the impact of some specific drivers regarding logistics outsourcing and to define a set of recommendations for the recovery of competitiveness for Agri-food supply chains.
