Ports of entry for shipping household goods—is Germany or UK better than Italy (5 replies)

I just read that it’s far better to ship from the US to a port of entry in the UK or Germany rather than ship directly to Italy. I am contemplating shipping household goods by shared container to Mestre (Venice) and wonder whether I should go with a company that ships to ports of entry in Europe other than Italy. Anyone have any insights on this? Thanks.
