Each mode of transport has its specific advantages: ships are economical, railways are environmentally-friendly, aircrafts are fast and trucks are flexible. But the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. By combining different modes of transport in a sensible manner, we achieve the very best for you. Nowadays, the large majority of products are imported and exported. The final customer expects a wide choice and rapid availability at all times. This means that companies have to handle great distances as quickly as possible – at an affordable price and without doing any damage to the environment.
Complex logistics chains are required to fulfil these conditions. By linking railway, truck, aircraft and shipping services, we create the ideal conditions for moving goods in a clean, cost-efficient and fast manner. Our highly efficient terminals are the pivotal points when it is necessary to transship freight from one mode of transport to another.
