Consumer goods transports - International transports with curtain-sided trucks

Do you want flexible transport solutions in order to respond quickly to the demand behaviour of consumers? Do you also want to minimise the safety risks of your international transports? Then LKW WALTER is your transport organisation!

 

The consumer goods industry is affected by seasonal fluctuations. Knowing this, LKW WALTER organises full truck loads for those products in the consumer goods industry that are transported by means of curtain-sided trailers on the road and in Combined Transport. These include selected drinks, white and brown goods, detergents, sanitary products, cereals, animal feed and much more.

Every year, we transport more than 280,000 full truck loads for our customers from the consumer goods industry.

    The use of modern equipment is an important reason why LKW WALTER transports run smoothly. On our standard vehicles with up to 34 Euro pallet spaces, we use additional load securing equipment for even more safety.

     

    The transport of consumer goods begins with selecting suitable equipment. Specifically, we transport your goods wih 13.6 m curtain-sided trailers (tautliners and mega trailers) as standard.

     

    Our trailer standard:

     

    • Telematics systems in all trailers
    • 20 pcs. straps
    • Customs seal

     

    Transport-suitable packaging of consumer goods, form-fit loading and efficient load securing play important roles when transporting. Because you know your goods best, the responsibiity for the correct stowage lies with you. Please note that we can only safely transport well-packaged and stowed goods.

     

    LKW WALTER provides extra safety by carrying load securing equipment such as edge protectors, anti-slip mats, etc.

  • Perfect time slot management

    Perfect time slot management

    Well-trained transport managers and state-of-the-art IT systems support you in the exact planning and efficient handling of your transports. By providing stand-by trailers, we also offer you a flexible loading solution.

     

    For sufficient loading capacities and best-possible ramp utilisation, excellent time slot management is absolutely essential. LKW WALTER supports you in this.

     

    Accurate transport planning reduces waiting times during loading or unloading and therefore increases efficiency. In addition, we can provide you with standby equipment, subject to request. This allows you to decide when you are loading or unloading your goods and to make the most of your loading staff.

     

    In addition, standby equipment allows you to create additional loading space on site and avoid the time-consuming search for an additional warehouse.

  • Highest standards for maximum safety

    Our well-trained employees guarantee the highest standards along the entire value chain. In particular, our transport managers optimise the entire process from the transport organisation to the unloading. In doing so, they communicate with you and your business partners in your native language.
