What is a logistics company?

Logistics companies are a type of freight transport service that involves the transportation of goods from a sender to a recipient. Unlike conventional transportation methods, where goods are typically shipped directly from a sender to a recipient, logistics companies take over the goods in the first step and then deliver them.

Mail Boxes Etc. specializes in the transportation of goods and is responsible for organizing and conducting freight transportation. Various means of transportation such as trucks, trains, or planes are used to transport the goods. In addition, we offer various services such as storage, consolidation, and customs clearance.

Who is logistics shipping suitable for?

Logistics shipping is well-suited for larger quantities of goods. However, it is also possible to transport smaller quantities of goods through logistics shipping. Additionally, it is ideal for shipping large or bulky objects. The advantage of this shipping method is that we take care of the organization and execution of the transportation process and handle all necessary formalities. As a company that transports its goods through logistics shipping with us, you don't have to worry about the logistics of the transportation process and can focus on your core competencies.

What can logistics companies transport?

In general, there are no limitations on specific goods or sizes when it comes to logistics shipping. Some logistics companies specialize in transporting specific goods or industries and may not accept all types of goods. It is important to find a logistics company that meets your transportation needs. We work with a large network of different service providers, allowing us to transport goods from many industries. We are happy to provide detailed advice on this. The following types of goods are frequently transported by logistics companies:

  • Industrial goods: This includes machinery, equipment, raw materials, and semi-finished products used for the production of goods.
  • Commercial goods: This includes consumer goods such as food, clothing, electronics, and household appliances sold in stores or online.
  • Spare parts and accessories: Spare parts for machinery and equipment needed for repairs or maintenance.
  • Food items: Logistics companies can also transport perishable food items such as meat, fish, fruits, and vegetables.
  • Chemicals: The transportation of chemicals used for the production of products or industrial processes is also possible through logistics companies.
  • Dangerous goods: Hazardous goods that require special precautions, such as explosives, toxic chemicals, or radioactive materials, can also be handled by specialized logistics companies.

International logistics shipping with Mail Boxes Etc.

International trade is crucial for the German economy. With an export surplus of well over 150 billion euros per year, Germany is one of the "export champions." Therefore, international logistics shipping is becoming increasingly relevant for local traders.

When you need international logistics services, there are several important factors to consider. As a nearby logistics company, we take care of all the important areas for you and ensure that the transportation of your goods goes smoothly. This includes:

  • Checking customs regulations: Each country has different customs regulations and requirements to be observed when importing goods. We ensure that the logistics shipping meets the specific requirements and customs regulations.
  • Optimized transportation costs: International transportation is generally more expensive than domestic transportation. We offer competitive prices and calculate customized offers.
  • Finding the right mode of transportation: There are different modes of transportation available for international shipping, such as air freight, sea freight, or truck logistics. Here, too, we use a system tailored to your needs. We consider factors such as transport time, costs, and security.
  • Comprehensive service: In a comprehensive consultation, we determine your specific logistics needs. This way, we can determine which services you require.
  • Collaboration with experienced logistics companies: We cooperate with logistics companies and shipping service providers that have extensive experience in international transportation and are able to meet all requirements and challenges.

Transporting perishable goods with logistics shipping

For perishable food items such as meat, fish, fruits, and vegetables, we offer refrigerated transportation with specially trained and equipped logistics companies. There are special requirements and precautions to be observed when transporting food items. This ensures that the food remains in excellent condition during the transportation process.

Perishable food items must be kept cool throughout the entire transport. This is essential to maintain the quality. The so-called cold chain must be maintained during transportation, and the food must not exceed a certain temperature. If the cold chain is broken, the food cannot be further processed or sold, highlighting the importance of comprehensive documentation of the transportation process.

If necessary, we also offer a packaging service to ensure hygienic packaging of the food items on their way to the destination. We pack the goods on-site and prepare them optimally for transportation.

The import of food items is subject to particularly strict customs regulations in many countries. Of course, we are also here to clarify all customs formalities in a timely manner and ensure a smooth process. Especially with fresh food items, long waiting times can jeopardize resale.

Logistics shipping and costs - we determine individual prices

The transportation costs for your logistics shipping are determined individually by our MBE staff. We take into account all relevant factors for the calculation:

  • The transportation costs primarily depend on the type and quantity of goods to be transported. Heavy and bulky goods generally incur higher costs. At the same time, with increasing order volume, we can secure better logistics prices.
  • The distance also plays a role in calculating transportation costs. Additionally, whether it is a national or international shipment is taken into account.
  • There are different modes of transportation, such as air freight, sea freight, or truck logistics, each causing different costs.
  • If you book additional services for your logistics transportation, these will also affect the price. Possible services include storage, consolidation, and customs clearance.

The exact transportation costs for your logistics shipping, therefore, depend on the individual requirements and needs of your company. It is important for both parties that we carefully analyze the transportation needs together to secure the best prices and conditions for logistics shipping.
