JF Hillebrand, which has delivered specialist logistics services to the drinks industry for over 160 years, has opened a new phase in its continuing development with the launch of an enhanced European service offering.
The world’s leading logistics supplier to the wines and spirits industry has launched European Transport Solutions, an expanded distribution network tailored to the needs of the European wine market.
Offering more routes across more countries, European Transport Solutions provides a wider range of continental transport options, including services by road, rail, barge and coastal shipping.
“For many years we have been able to offer customers specialist expertise and care for both their European door-to-door and Deep Sea shipments,” says Guido Roth, JF Hillebrand’s European Transport Manager. “Our new European Transport Solutions network enhances and extends our existing intra-European services, offering customers across the continent the full range of logistics services they need.”
This includes the highest security standards, the use of VinLiners to protect the wine against temperature fluctuations and other potential hazards, and expert handling of all legal and fiscal formalities.
The multimodal portfolio and range of service options – including full truck loads (FTL), and smaller LTL consignments - gives customers greater flexibility to better manage their carbon footprint and cost effectively transport what they need, when they need it. All movements are supported by JF Hillebrand’s online logistics management system, Axis.
