Transport management

How much transport capacity does a company require to cover all transport needs globally, just in time and at the best possible price? The answer is: more than any one transport firm can maintain or provide. This is why LOG CONNECT AG chooses the least costly and most reliable carrier from a pool for the benefit of the client.

Here, ongoing benchmarking is essential, because the transport and forwarding market is in constant flux. There are considerable differences in price depending on transport requirements, carrier and route. LOG CONNECT AG utilises this opportunity to systematically and efficiently reduce costs for the client.

If desired, LOG CONNECT AG can act as a general contractor by combining all of your company’s transport and logistic requirements and representing your interests to third parties. LOG CONNECT AG’s neutral position enables it to integrate time-tested partners into your total concept as subcontractors. The advantages: a single public interface, cost reduction through bundling, reduced administration, tracking and tracing options, and central reporting.

There are other decisive advantages with respect to the physical flow of goods when you use LOG CONNECT AG as a general contractor. For example, all of one day’s consignments can be continuously loaded onto one mode of transport, independently of whether they are FCL, LCL, parcel, airfreight or maritime consignments.

An optimal flow of goods can only be achieved in combination with appropriate warehousing solutions. LOG CONNECT AG integrates all forms of warehousing into the transport chain, such as handling, distribution, purchasing, commissioning, cooling, cross docking, and consignment warehousing.

LOG CONNECT AG designs all types of project transport in collaboration with experienced, globally active specialists, and manages them professionally. Its activities encompass the complete array of options, from planning the project to providing spare parts at the end.


A best-in-class provider is not identified by price alone. Other factors such as reliability, quality, service, availability and willingness to cooperate are just as important. The more complex the demands, the less the price is the main criterion.


The best set the standards in one or more disciplines. It will not always be possible to match them, but the goal is defined and one knows where one stands in the market.

A general contractor

A service provider forms the umbrella for various subcontractors and acts as the exclusive interface to the client, deploying the “ready-to-use” model. The general contractor can provide additional services to augment the input of the subcontractors.

FCL / LCL / Parcels

– FCL: Full container load (20 or 40-foot container) or full truck load.

– LCL: Less than container load. This is general cargo (on pallets, in cartons, etc.) which is usually transported as groupage freight (by truck, rail, air and sea).

– Parcels: Generally parcels of up to 31.5 kg that are usually transported by integrators (parcel service companies).

Airfreight / Maritime consignments

– Consolidated airfreight (low-priced but with limited departure frequency)
– Direct airfreight (more expensive but with higher frequency)

Maritime consignments:
– General cargo by sea (consolidated containers)

Warehouse solutions

Permanent warehouse, handling warehouse, distribution centres with pick and pack services, high rack storage, hazardous goods storage, cool storage, customs storage, cross docking warehouse, consignment warehouse, etc.

Project transport

Goods that cannot be transported in the normal way due to their size or weight have to be moved with special equipment and special transporters (special trucks, railway wagons, full charter aircraft, special vessels, heavylift machinery, etc.). Meticulous planning of the transport, obtaining the various permits, and advance route reconnaissance are only a few of the elements that make successful project transportation possible.
