Electronics transports - Customised safety concepts

Are you looking for a partner who responds to trends and fluctuations in the electrical industry with the right measures? Who informs you about the current location of your goods at all times, fulfills your demanding safety requirements and minimises transport risks - welcome to LKW WALTER, your electronics transporter!

LKW WALTER delivers customised solutions with short transit times for the entire time-sensitive supply chain of the electronics industry. We organise the transport of components right through to end products to both direct customers and distribution centres.

LKW WALTER organises more than 170,000 full truck loads annually for the electronics industry.

7 good reasons for our collaboration

  • Transport safety at the highest level (TAPA)

    LKW WALTER guarantees responsible handling of your load during the entire transport. Rely on our numerous safety concepts, which we are constantly expanding and improving with the help of state-of-the-art technology.

     

    Because of our years of experience, we know about the specific challenges involved in transporting sophisticated electronic products. For this reason, we are familiar with the TAPA standards, we have developed a wide range of services and established our own Security Management Team. The latter evaluates the risks of transport processes and ensures:

     

    • Optimal route analysis
    • Selection and evaluation of secure parking spaces
    • Development of preventive measures

     

    As the European market leader for full truck loads, LKW WALTER continuously invests in the expansion and improvement of safety concepts. For example, we monitor transports and route using "Geofencing".

  • Accurate transport monitoring in real time

    Transport Management

    As part of our comprehensive services, with LKW WALTER you benefit from seamless transport monitoring and shipment tracking in live format. We use state-of-the-art telematics systems and special procedures such as routing or 24/7 monitoring.

     

    LKW WALTER optimises the delivery process and keeps journey times as short as possible. Among other things, this works because we take fixed deliveries and statutory rest and driving periods into account right from the planning. With routing we define routes where necessary. Deviations from planned routes are checked using accurate GPS tracking.

     

    Upon request, an external monitoring centre provides around-the-clock monitoring and real-time information about your load.

  • Best trained drivers

    Best trained drivers

    LKW WALTER only works with qualified and certified transport partners. Because we know from many years of experience: highly trained, informed and motivated drivers are the foundation for first-class transport services.

     

    Our drivers are on the road for you. Every day. From west to east. From north to south. Each new transport partner undergoes a demanding selection process with strict criteria. In this way LKW WALTER guarantees certified and qualified driver competence and therefore maximum safety for your goods.

     

    You should also bear in the mind that a continuous education is very important to us. We organise targeted driver training for this reason. As part of this training, we prepare drivers for the specifics of the electronics industry and inform them about current (safety) topics. If necessary, we carry out special security audits.

  • Stable loading capacities and high flexibility

    Due to years of industry experience, LKW WALTER is able to respond to seasonal fluctuations at very short notice. For example, in the Christmas business or on "Black Friday". We always offer sufficient loading space!

     

    In fact, LKW WALTER guarantees fast deliveries even with increasing deadline pressure, ever shorter delivery times and short-term increases in delivery volumes. Optimal route planning, proactive scheduling and stable loading capacities make this possible.

     

    If you rely on LKW WALTER in the long term, we will get to know your individual transport requirements even better. Which is why the quality of our collaboration continues to grow.
