Management position conditioned transport
‘At Farm Trans I’m responsible for all conditioned transport. We closely collaborate with our subsidiaries in England, Poland and Belgium and serve the Benelux, Germany and England with our own fleet. Furthermore, we also have our Connected Services which enables us to use different partners to supply the countries that we ourselves do not supply.
Department conditioned transport
Efficient daily planning of the customer’s goods taking into account the service-level-agreements, agreements on performances and conditions on product supply: these are our main day-to-day activities. And of course the cost efficiency from our perspective.
Together with the customer we have to try and face the challenge. Naturally, they also put a limit to their delivery times because they have less funds. You also need to focus on safety in the process, for drivers and at the office; and still observing the cost efficiency. And, obviously, to deliver the performance our customers expect.
We use strategic partners who support us in our fine-mazed distribution. We select on a daily basis as to which customers who can run our distribution in the most efficient way. In this way our vehicles have a high load factor and are capable of transporting more volume with less vehicles.
