Cargo News 04-2017

Traditionally, the end of the year has proven to be a good opportunity to review the year’s events, as well as prepare for future expectations.

The past few months have been marked by an unusualoverheating in the transport sector. Together with our partners and customers, the SENATOR team has succeeded in mastering the various challenges during this exciting time.

If there is one word to sum up 2017 for SENATOR INTERNATIONAL, it would be „flight.“ With over 120 flights, our 747 Jumbo has not only been able to close a market gap in traffic between the USA and Germany, but also offers many customers in Europe and the US East Coast a real alternative to the traditional providers, and now with additional flights per week. A heartfelt thank you to our many customers, as well as to our employees working day and night on both sides of the Atlantic to make this a success.

We are currently launching our own Ocean Freight consolidation service between Germany and the US to Spartanburg in South Carolina, the so-called SENATOR CAROLINA EXPRESS. This new direct LCL service allows for significantly shorter delivery times. You profit as well!

SENATOR INTERNATIONAL has long established itself as a competent contract logistics provider. In order to meet the growing demand for storage capacities and logistics solutions in the future, further investments were made in SENATOR’s logistics location in Hamburg, where the hall floor space was significantly expanded.

The control of complete commodity flows, which do not originate and end in the respective booking country, is becoming more and more important. Thanks to our global network, we can offer these Cross Trades from one source in all product lines.

We thank our customers for their kind and trustworthy cooperation. We look forward to putting all our efforts into your satisfaction during the upcoming year.

We wish you, your employees and all SENATOR INTERNATIONAL colleagues a Merry Christmas, and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

Yours, Uwe Kirschbaum and Tim-Oliver Kirschbaum
Chairmen and CEOs of SENATOR INTERNATIONAL Spedition GmbH
