A special shipment is a delivery that differs from a normal transport service. In the automotive industry, it’s also comparable to a courier service. Companies in the automotive industry often don’t have large storage capacities, so they are supplied with components and other goods on a just-in-time basis every day. This is the only way to maintain production. Many of these shipments take place outside regular business hours, which is why they are called special shipments or special deliveries.
For STEX, the express freight forwarder, special shipments or special deliveries are part of our daily business. We regularly transport bulky goods, large loads and urgent consignments by special shipment to the recipient – not only within Germany, but also across borders in many European countries. At a very attractive price.
The services offered by STEX – which naturally also apply to special shipments – include pick-up and delivery at the times you require, direct delivery with no reloading or transfer, the subsequent return transport of trade fair and event materials, the driver’s notification and much more. You can rely on our planning security, reliability, flexibility and round-the-clock availability.
