Transport & Logistics

Mission Statement

Logistics plays a particularly important role in a supply chain. This is why targeted planning and optimization of transport logistics is of crucial importance for smooth operations. Especially in trade a shortening of delivery periods and the use of sustainable means of transport can offer a decisive competitive edge. The challenges of the proverbial "last mile" must be overcome and environmental impacts must be minimized. Together with our clients we develop customized solutions in all areas, taking account of complex legal issues and at the same time keeping national and European strategic goals in mind, such as in connection with the White Paper on Transport of the European Commission.

„Strong and efficient Team, always reachable and short response time. Excellent standing in the market, well connected and excellent industry know-how.“
