Advice and solutions for overland consignments

Complete service to the farthest corners of the world!

We are very happy to advise you before the beginning of the consignment, if so desired. Please talk to our overland consignment experts. The service we provide begins before the consignment is booked and picked up. Do you have any questions about a shipment from Spain to Germany?

Full truck load (FTL) or less than truckload (LTL)?

How much space does your shipment require? Does your consignment from Italy to Germany fill up a whole lorry? If so, we can offer you an FTL (full truck load) shipment. We will convey your cargo to any desired destination overland. As the customer, you can specify the pickup and arrival times for the FTL. Delivery will be executed in accordance with your wishes.

We can also offer suitable overland freight solutions for small or medium-sized consignments from Germany to the Czech Republic, for example. For partial loads (LTL = less than truckload), our overland transport specialists will find an appropriate lorry.

Are you looking for a combined transport solution?

With a combined INTERMODAL transport solution, your cargo will be shipped in a single shipping unit but using various modes of transport. Do you need to send a shipment from, say, Vietnam to Germany? The consignment will be conveyed by an intelligent combination of rail, road and water. Transport solutions involving a single shipping unit improves the security of your overland consignment, as there is no need to reload the cargo.

Special overland shipments

Are there special requirements attached to transporting your cargo over land? Do you have a temperature-sensitive consignment? Does your cargo need to be chilled, for example? We can offer rapid shipment of your land freight at the appropriate temperature. Does your consignment contain hazardous goods? We offer professional supervision of sensitive consignments containing hazardous goods. Our in-house hazardous materials officer will guarantee the safety of your special consignment of hazardous goods.
