New LTL routes from Hungary to Romania
Duisburg, 12th May 2015. - STI Freight Management, the logistics service provider headquartered in Duisburg, Germany now offers a temperature-controlled consolidated (LTL) service with fixed departure times from Hungary to Romania. Loading at various shipment stations in Hungary, the consolidated service transports goods twice a week in partitioned trailers at all three temperature levels via a distribution centre in Romania owned by the sister company HAVI Logistics. In this way, STI supports food logistics for customers in southeast Europe. "Flexible transport margins create a real competitive advantage for food producers. Particularly because we are one of the few service providers in Hungary and Romania who can offer an LTL service for all temperature levels concurrently," explains Kai Schüttke, Vice President of STI Freight Management. "Customers save noticeably on transport costs, profit from short transit times, just-in-time delivery and the safe transport of perishable goods."
Currently, STI operates 34 LTL routes on a fixed schedule. The contract logistics provider uses its extensive road operation network with 13 subsidiaries in Europe. "The aim is to shorten transit times even more and constantly increase the departure frequency of LTL routes," explains Schüttke. This year, as well the Hungary-Romania route, a further four consolidated routes have commenced. LTL shipments are carried once a week from Spain to both Belgium and the Netherlands. Weekly scheduled routes also operate from northern Italy to Slovenia and Spain.
