Full Truck Loads (FTL) within Europe are being organized by ForestField Logistics more and more on a Multimodal way. Multimodal basicly means that the most optimal combination of truck, ship and rail is being used. This brings some major advantages, e.g. lower rates and C02-reduction.
13:60 Curtainsided trailers (L 13.60 x B 2.45 x H 2.65) are being used for this traffic; these can be loaded from the rear, both sides aswell as via the roof. Trailers are being loaded with trucks at the shipper, than driven to the closest terminal. From there the trailers go by ship and/or train to the terminal closest to the consignee. Final delivery at the consignee will be done by truck. Obviously we can arrange all neccesary documentation, from CMR to export- and importdocuments, customs formalities etc.
