Maersk Line has created a tailor-made rail/truck solution for the delivery of our import containers to our distribution centre in Homberg/Efze. Together with their reliable service, this ensures a fixed and stable supply of cargo every week around the year, and made our daily planning much easier.Mr. Niels Hother Madsen (Purchasing Manager – Bettenwelt GmbH & Co. KG.)
Shipping is not just about ships. The ship is just a part of the supply chain and the cargo gets transported in the container from a location at the origin to an inland location elsewhere. This often means coordinating multiple suppliers, and every extra link in the chain increases your workload, reduces reliability and affects transparency. That is why we offer a full-service solution.
We take care of your cargo from pick up to delivery at destination, giving you one point of contact for its entire journey. Whether your cargo travels by land or sea, by barge or train, we are with you all the way, vastly increasing the simplicity and reliability of your supply chain.
You can manage most of your shipments online – from pricing and booking through to document handling and delivery – so you have more time to concentrate on other things. And, because you have one point of contact for every shipment, you always know who to call with any issues, last minute changes or special requests, such as multi-stop drop-offs or layovers.
We manage connections to ensure you get the fastest transfer times possible. And, with teams of specialists ready to help optimise your supply chain, we can work with you to make sure your logistics flow smoothly and efficiently from end to end.
We transport your sensitive goods – such as bananas and avocados – in controlled atmosphere containers, so they can travel farther than ever before and still arrive in perfect condition. We have a global presence and this means also our intermodal coverage has a global footprint enabling you to reach any local market in the world.
With the world’s largest fleet, a comprehensive inland network, fixed schedules and consistent capacity, we make sure that you deliver your promises to your customers – time after time. We will make sure you receive your goods exactly at the minute you need it at your warehouse.
As we offer industry-leading low-CO2 shipping, the more you ship with us, the more you reduce the carbon footprint of your operations.
