trans-o-flex expands international network to include the Balkan States
Delivery of standard goods in combined shipments (parcels and pallets) to Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as Montenegro is complemented by the transportation of hazardous goods without being limited to small quantities
This USP makes the difference that distinguishes the trans-o-flex Logistics Group and its partners from other delivery networks, which, in general, specialise in the transportation of either parcels or pallets and are only licensed to transport hazardous goods in small quantities. "trans-o-flex, on the other side, has always considered it a priority to provide all drivers and vehicles with the training and equipment necessary to ensure the safe transportation of hazardous goods", continues Schmuck. "In combination with our EDP expertise, which ensures a smooth control and continuous transparency of the shipments, our competence in dealing with the transportation of hazardous goods and our combi-freight services are the keys to the success of trans-o-flex."
In co-operation with its Eurodis partners, trans-o-flex offers full-coverage deliveries in a total of 33 European countries. Amongst others, the Eurodis network consists of trans-o-flex in Germany and the Benelux countries, Redur in Spain and Portugal, Österreichische Post AG with its southeast European subsidiaries, UK Mail in the UK and Ireland as well as Sernam in France. In Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro and Serbia, trans-o-flex co-operates with subsidiaries of Österreichische Post AG. The Slovenian partner is Teamtrans d.o.o. with its head office in Maribor. Teamtrans is a 100-% subsidiary of Rail Cargo Austria (RCA), which has already established itself as a reliable partner for trans-o-flex in Austria, e.g. with respect to the delivery of hazardous goods.
trans-o-flex Schnell-Lieferdienst GmbH
The success of the Europe-wide operating trans-o-flex Logistic Group is based on three pillars: 1. trans-o-flex Schnell-Lieferdienst offers a full-coverage network for the efficient and safe transportation of parcels and pallets (combi-freight) all over Germany. This also includes numerous additional services, such as the transportation of hazardous goods without being limited to small quantities. At the same time trans-o-flex, in its capacity as shareholder and partner of the Eurodis network, provides full-coverage combi-freight services in 33 European countries. The company has developed a large number of tailor-made solutions for specific sectors, e.g. for the pharmaceutical and home entertainment / consumer goods industries. 2. With a special network for active temperature control in the temperature ranges of between 2 and 8 °C as well as 15 and 22 °C, trans-o-flex ThermoMed takes over the transportation of temperature-sensitive goods for the pharmaceutical industry in Germany, Austria and the Benelux countries. 3. Additional logistic services from storage and picking/packing to value-added services, such as the set-up service for sales displays or electrical appliances, up to customer-specific transport networks are developed and implemented under the umbrella of trans-o-flex Logistik Service. In 2009, annual sales of the Group, which has a workforce of approximately 1,600 employees, amounted to ca. € 500 million.
