Whether you need components from the high-tech sector, industrial complexes or large packages – no item is too heavy for us. We offer you transport solutions at home and abroad for lightweight or heavy-duty consignments and ensure that your goods are handled professionally. You can also benefit from our value-added services such as customs clearance and document logistics.
A high-tech component is required to manufacture a machine. An industrial plant in Asia has to be dismantled, shipped to Europe and set up again there. Large packages from several countries have to arrive at a building site at the same time. Whether small or large, light or heavy – we will find just the right transport solution for each component and ensure that you have an efficient concept for your just-in-time production processes. We distribute your breakbulk cargo according to a fixed timetable or on individual services. In addition, we look after customs clearance for your international consignments and support your document logistics.
Whether the shipment is domestic or international, travelling by road, rail, sea or air: we will pick up the components for your plants and machines directly from your suppliers. We pool flows of goods, consolidate shipments at strategic hubs and guarantee supplies and disposal services for your production processes. We have the right equipment to transport hazardous and special items and store your goods. We not only provide scheduled services with fixed departure times, but also ship supplies to your production line using just-in-time and charter services.
Manufacturers of industrial goods prefer flexible suppliers that can accommodate fluctuations in orders. A competent logistics services provider can offer short delivery times with reliable supplies and cost benefits through reductions in stocks. We offer you the necessary certainty through our global network and the high degree of flexibility at our multi-user centres. When your goods arrive, we check the stipulated deadlines, quantities and quality and keep an eye on your products until they leave our warehouse.
Our experienced project logistics team develop and introduce tailor-made concepts for domestic and international shipments of heavy-duty items. There are benefits in having access to an experienced project logistics network and a personal contact person for your logistics chain. Our strength lies in pooling the expertise that is available at a wide variety of corporate units and partners. Then we can handle your projects with multi-modal services: by seagoing/inland waterway vessels, truck and rail. We always pay attention to using sustainable transport solutions and providing efficiency in terms of costs and time. We will assist you all the way as you plan, design, draw, calculate, charter, stow and load – and even provide customs clearance and complete project documentation.
Major infrastructure projects are particularly booming in Asia because of the high degree of business dynamism there: a new runway at an airport, an oil pipeline or an additional port terminal. Seagoing vessels play an important role in transporting large consignments for key projects, as many roads are not suitable for them. We are ideally equipped to handle the transportation to the seagoing vessel, the transhipment and voyage for your heavy items – and the final delivery. Our project managers have specific knowledge of certain countries and ensure that high quality specifications are followed in line with Western European standards. We can accompany your projects at the local site too: for example, we transported 35 metre high gantry cranes by sea from Jurong Port in Singapore to the Indonesian capital of Jakarta or 50 railway coaches from Japan to the Philippines.
Managing your supply chain
Actively managing and monitoring the transport chain is our top priority. To ensure that this succeeds, all the partners involved along the supply chain must be able to exchange information. So we have developed an intelligent IT network, which guarantees full transparency with maximum security levels through joint interfaces. New partners can be linked to our systems with little effort and expense.
Keeping on top of things
Careful planning and documentation work are essential if any project is going to succeed. From building drawings to tender process documents and permits and even operating and assembly instructions – we not only guarantee ideal conditions for storing your physical and electronic documents in the long term, but we can also sort several thousand documents into your files every day using our IT-supported processes or search for documents in your files within a few minutes and make them available in digital form. We dispose of storage media, which are surplus to requirements, using the highest security standards and in line with the data protection regulations. If required, we can operate your mail room and look after your routine correspondence.
