After 150 years of experience in the transport business, we know how to get your goods to their destination - quickly, reliably and optimally organised. With our own fleet of vehicles, 3,500 cooperations and 250 permanent partners both nationally and internationally, we realise partial and complete loads throughout Europe on a daily basis.
We not only handle standard transports for you, but also offer you various services if time-critical goods are involved or special requirements have to be met.
Our newly founded Central Logistics Services (CLS) ensures standardised carrier management. Digitalised processes from pricing to invoicing ensure the best possible order processing. Our comprehensive customer service ranges from delivery receipts and tracking to time slot management and customs preparation.
We take care of factory supply at your production site, project management for your shipment and develop with you an integrated, cost-optimised concept, always taking into account efficient route planning.

With a planning time of several days for non-time-critical goods, we highly recommend you our Economic Service. Thanks to the advance notice, we can combine your shipment with existing consignments, avoid empty kilometres and thus ensure environmentally friendly transport. As a thank-you, we offer you a lower daily price than for standard services.
If your goods are time-critical, small in volume or involve special requirements (hazardous goods or similar), you can contact us for our express service or special freight. Here we offer you a wide range of options such as next-day delivery, 12-hour service or just-in-time deliveries. Within the scope of night and early morning delivery, we also deliver your goods to their destination at times that are not usual in the trade.
For shipments in the future (e.g. when moving stock) we agree on a fair diesel surcharge, which adjusts the costs to the applicable diesel conditions.
You are also welcome to place the supplies and factory transport at your production site in our hands.
For an optimal and fast delivery of your shipment, we rely in some cases on encounter traffic. In this case, two vehicles swap trailers halfway and return to their starting point.
In so-called round trips, several loading and unloading points are combined in one tour to avoid empty runs and to optimally utilize the vehicles. This principle is particularly suitable for the return of empties in the context of production supply.
We can easily plan several stopovers on one tour and offer you your shipment at attractive conditions.
