LOGISTICS FOR CONSUMER GOODS AND SPECIAL OFFERS — MOVE MORE, FASTER
Rapid availability of goods, 24-hour delivery service, huge competitive pressures and strict legal requirements — welcome to the world of logistics for consumer goods and retail! Whether it’s food or non-food, special challenges are a daily occurrence in this space. And things get even more interesting when it comes to special offers and seasonal items. The goal is usually to get as many trucks as possible on the road, as quickly as possible. But now you can stop losing sleep over shipments like these — because they just happen to be our specialty. Every day, we deliver special offer goods to discounters such as our key account LIDL and other grocery retailers. And every day, we ensure that all types of special shipments get to their destinations on schedule. What makes us so good at it is our extensive experience. What our renowned customers value so highly about us, is our reliability. For every special offer, our customers receive a single point of contact at FIT who coordinates all administrative and operational processes with them. The precision of our work, our disciplined workflows, and the emergency assistance we provide for transportation problems of all kinds make us more than merely competent for transporting seasonal and special offer goods. You can count on that.
Food logistics — Freshness is a big responsibility
When it comes to food, we don’t fool around. Transporting food products makes our enormous responsibility as a logistics provider is abundantly clear.
Of course we also know that frozen and fresh products are particularly demanding of both people and technology. And that these demands often stand in stark contrast to the intense price competition in this space. It’s a challenge we face every day — how to supply outstanding transport quality, a large number of trucks, and affordable services at conditions that mean every stakeholder in the process wins. It’s not always easy. But we never expected life to be a walk in the park. And if we had, logistics is the last place we’d be. But we don’t have to tell you that.
BEVERAGE LOGISTICS — FIND YOUR FLOW
We have yet to meet the beverage logistics provider who never gives a second thought to seasonal variations in cargo volume. But we have seen a lot of things over our many years transporting alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for grocery wholesalers and retailers as well as beverage wholesalers and retail markets. That’s why we are not only familiar with all the peculiarities of the sector, but also the special requirements of the entire beverage supply chain — both in Germany and abroad. Thanks to this expertise and our access to the daily available truck capacity across Europe, we pride ourselves at being one of the very best partners for handling volatile cargo volumes smoothly. An additional challenge that our numerous clients in the beverage industry trust us to master is reliably handling the return of all reusable bottles and crates. And if you’d like, we can of course do the same for you. As a matter of fact, we’d be delighted.
