European transport and distribution
Through our knowledge of the European transportation market, Continental Forwarders Logistics (CFL)’s can offer you the best solution per lane or destination. As a result, you get the best service and quality.
Our European road forwarding services include:
- Full loads
- Parcel and pallet distribution
Courier & Express
Combining its strength in intercontinental forwarding activities with the European express delivery system, Gelder’s Air provides a true European Gateway service. With the import service, individual consignments are shipped in consolidation to Schiphol Airport, where break-bulk activities are performed after which goods are dispatched for distribution across the EMEA region to, for instance, dealers and distributors. For most shippers, this is a more cost-effective solution than shipping to each consignee directly.
The reverse of the above is also possible. In this case, goods are collected across Europe and shipped in consolidation to consignees in North and South America and Asia. Here also, the consolidation results in significant cost-savings compared to direct shipments.
