What is a direct delivery? With direct deliveries carried out by STEX, the express freight forwarder, there is no transhipment or reloading. This means that the vehicle picking up the shipment also delivers it direct to the recipient. At the same time, delivery is agreed on with the recipient from the outset. This is an advantage, for example, if the consignment is to be delivered to a construction site, to a trade fair, another event or just-in-time. With other forwarding companies, partial loads are offered as direct deliveries, but further consignments are loaded or unloaded along the way. STEX, the express freight forwarding company, on the other hand, delivers the consignments straight to the recipient on request – with no detours. Notification by the driver is also possible.
Calculate a fixed price online fast: You can use our online price calculator to plan your STEX express direct delivery. Choose between four different vehicle types. While a caddy will probably be sufficient for small parcels, you would be better off having larger equipment or spare parts transported by lorry. They will usually arrive direct at your company 60 minutes after you have booked a vehicle, unless you choose a different time slot for the pick-up.
Advantages of direct delivery: Since direct deliveries do not involve transhipment or reloading, the risk of damage is much reduced. More sensitive goods can also be shipped. With STEX freight forwarding services and express direct deliveries, you can also have hazardous goods transported. Please contact our dispatcher for more information. Transhipments with infrequent departures can also take several days. This does not apply to direct deliveries. This means there is no risk of pallets or parts of shipments being incorrectly loaded.
Collective pick-ups and special services: In the case of a collective pick-up or other networked logistic services, consignments are usually only picked up and delivered during normal working hours. Such times do not apply to direct deliveries. In this case, you can have STEX pick up your consignments around the clock and also choose the time of delivery.
Modern GPS equipment of our vehicles: As all our vehicles are equipped with GPS, we can regularly keep you up to date about the status of your shipment as well as the pick-up and delivery to the recipient. We do not charge you for the return journey.
