Transuniverse is not only aiming for further geographic expansion. “We are also playing the multimodal card. That requires a serious change in how we think and act, because road transport is and will remain our core business. But our customers also want greener logistics. That is why we will soon be investing in our own huckepack trailers that we can load onto trains.
There are several contracts for countries such as Russia, Greece, Italy and Hungary that Transuniverse Forwarding would never have got if it could not offer multimodality.
“We can certainly permit ourselves to be less modest”, Frank Adins concludes. “Our strengths are something to boast about. We offer the best of both worlds, between small transporters that soon reach the limits of the service they can provide and big logistics players for whom customers are just a number. With our human contact and customised service, we really make a difference.”
