Let our inspiration be your advantage
FIT Logistik- & Transportmanagement GmbH & Co. KG is a midsized family business headquartered in Henstedt-Ulzburg. And we happen to be an exceptional provider for European truckload shipping.
Why? Because we are able to rapidly unite the goods you need to ship with the available trucks of our transport partners across Europe — by using state-of-the-art technologies. And because we’re pretty good at solving shipping problems. It’s hard not to be with a business philosophy that calls for creative solutions instead of turning people away. But since we do know exactly where our capabilities end, we never make promises we can’t keep. Yet you can still expect far more from us than you would any other service provider. You’ve got our word on it.
Let our people strengthen your team
FIT is no typical freight forwarder. And the people who work for us are not just run-of-the-mill logistics staff, either. Our employees consistently view their daily challenges from the perspective of the customer so they always have the interests of the shipper in mind. The idea is not to “get the truck full,” but rather, “get those goods rolling.” This perspective requires considerable reorientation for new employees coming from traditional transport companies, but puts them ahead in the long run. At FIT, the knowledge of trained experts in the fields of shipping, transportation, commerce, and administration combines with decades of experience possessed by logistics staff formerly employed by state-run transport operations to form a proficient team of specialists that work hard each and every day to get your business rolling. Ongoing training and continuing education ensure that our team continues to expand its capabilities by building on our unique strengths. But we never lose track of our mission: to enthusiastically give each and every one of our customers the professional advice they need to find the right solution. This passion for results not only makes our daily work effective, it even makes it fun.
Let our sustainability protect your environment
We believe that being responsible about resource use and operating in a sustainable manner to protect the environment are about more than just keeping up appearances — these are the foundations of any modern business activity, particularly in the transportation industry. Many of the policies we’ve adopted to conserve resources such as choosing re-usable pallets or relying exclusively on trucks that fulfil Euro 4 emissions standards, for instance, we feel are just the bare minimum. So of course we didn’t stop there. Instead of oversaturating the market with more and more trucks, increasing the number of empty kilometres driven, we’ve developed an intelligent e-procurement strategy that gives us a perfect overview of the daily capacities available throughout the entire European market. The considerably improved vehicle utilization we are able to achieve with this system leads to a direct reduction in the number of empty kilometres driven, and thus the emission of pollutants such as CO2. It’s the right thing to do for us, for our customers, and of course for Mother Nature.
