Your transport order in good hands
Whether national or Europe-wide, full or part loads, piece goods or works traffic, multi-modal logistics transports, tracking & tracing, our transport management will optimise and co-ordinate your flow of goods. Our rule: as a leading transport company, delivery quality is always at the top of our list of priorities. It is a major building block on the way to market success because it makes for satisfied customers and reduces the number of transport returns. It also means that the prices for transport logistics are not limited to the whims of spot markets. With pfenning logistics, you can plan your transport order to the nearest cent from the first to the last mile, will never find yourself in delivery difficulties, and even in times of goods space shortages will never experience any unpleasant surprises. As a future-orientated fleet company, we want our transport services to contribute to your success.
