These days, integrated logistics chains require more than the optimized use of trucks. Our logistics concepts therefore often combine several modes of transport. This way, we boost the efficiency of our services for our customers through intelligent collaboration.
Large volumes ...
require high-frequency supply chains — the major European roads, however, are overcrowded and additionally congested as a result of the great number of traffic restrictions. The railway is more than just a substitute. With the right planning, it can even offer financial incentives..
Plannable volumes ...
allow us to design logistics chains that make use of alternative transport routes. Such as the railway, inland waterway ships and seagoing vessels operating close to the coast.
Intermodal transport creates entirely new connections, even for smaller volumes ore ones that are difficult to plan. We know all about the many different solutions — with or without truck..
Alternative transport routes
Railway lines, inland waterways and coastal maritime routes offer transport capacities that we have been taking into account for many years. The closest connection to an alternative transport route is often even closer than you might think. And quite often it’s even worth taking a little detour.
Whenever possible, we also use the alternative transport routes along the rivers and canals of Europe. Using the most cost-efficient and environmentally friendly means of transport — the waterway craft.
Oceangoing container vessels connect the most important transport junctions along Europe’s coastline. We of course include this cost-efficient option in our logistics concepts.
