"Best of both worlds"
More than 260 forwarders, one central hub and 26 Transshipment-Points form the most closely meshed network in Europe.
Groupage with no detours: By choosing the TSP structure, you decide for the direct way of production without risking empty runs. The unique TSP-model connects all major economic regions with each other. Not only ideal lead times, but also excellent cost-benefits are achieved for your groupage business.
What is a TSP?
Transshipment-Points (short: TSP) bring the nearest node to your neighborhood. The TSPs in our network are operated by you! Our partners.
On the one hand, a TSP is a regional handling point, which consolidates outbound cargo and procurement shipments of our partners: Regional freight remains regional, supra-regional are forwarded via direct TSP-shuttles to the place of destination. A daily interlinking of all TSP locations provides ideal lead times at low costs. From each sending-TSP, every other TSP is reached on a daily line haul.
On the other hand, our TSP function as gateways for our international partners. A total number of 37 European countries are covered in our groupage network Sim Cargo. Direct, mostly daily, connections between our international partners and the gateway-TSP provide an excellent level of efficiency.
Short routes as ecological and economic benefit
The efficient location selection of our TSP delivers several benefits to our partners:
On average, our TSP are just 50 kilometres away from the nearest depot location. That is good for the environment and for you!
If capacity use fluctuates, the risk of vehicles not being fully loaded is minimal. After all, the nearest TSP is not far away. Another benefit of the TSP system is the enormous flexibility created by its closeness. Although a home TSP is assigned to every depot, at which the system partner inserts its outgoing goods into the system, the TSP model enables you to combine your own direct transport services with your groupage goods.
Are you interested in taking over the TSP function yourself? Contact us and together we will check the requirements.
