From A to B - in the optimum way
Transporting a consignment from A to B may seem simple enough: load the goods onto the truck, drive to your destination, unload – and that´s it. Of course you can use such a direct transport. But how often do you really have consignments that would fill a "small" 7-ton truck? Half-empty trucks cruising around cost a lot of money and are a strain on the environment.
That is the reason why forwarders like Gebrüder Weiss offer various transport systems for various consignments. It is not always the cheapest way of transport that is the best, neither is the fastest one the most ideal. Optimum transports are the ones that reach the right destination at the right time at the most favourable price. Priority and cost-effectiveness are the key-words for your choice of transport.
