This resulted in a new name for the company, BCUBE, and a new logo, with a huge B (the first letter in the Bonzano family name), a four-colour rendering, and an exponent, 3, to underscore the growth potential of the Group in the sector and suggest the concept of volume, a key element in the field of logistics.
