Crossdock Ambient warehouse

The ambient warehouse (15-25O C, 2100 m2) is used for the segregated storage and cross-docking of both pharmaceutical (according to GDP guidelines) and non-pharmaceutical products.

Office Boxmeer

From our headquarters in Boxmeer a team of experienced and skilled planners controls the fleet. In case of questions about your shipment, please contact them directly. In this way we keep the communication lines short and we respond to your questions quickly and effectively.

Crossdock Coldstore

For the crossdocking and storage of pharmaceutical products, we have a large cold store (2-8O C, 200 m2) that meets the current GDP guidelines.

Warehouse

For the storage of various other products, we have a separate warehouse with a capacity of approximately 4000 pallets. In addition to the storage we also take care of the handling for you. Inquire about the possibilities!

Garage Boxmeer

Fleet maintenance is carried out in our own garage. This allows us to anticipate quickly and limits unnecessary downtime of the fleet.

Our establishment on the industrial area of Goleniow located directly on the A3 motorway from Szczecin to Gdansk. This establishment has its own office, garage, truck wash, storage and parking. From here our Polish colleagues operate and we have a base for Eastern Europe.
