As an international freight forwarder, our transport operations obviously extend well beyond Germany. Our fleet of lorries can safely transport your goods to Paris, Lille, Lyon or Strasbourg as well. From there, your shipments are delivered to the specific regions. We cooperate with reliable logistics partners in France to offer perfectly customised transport services for you.
Our services for shipments to and from France:
- Shipment tracking: Our Track-and-Trace tool in the Koch portal lets you track your packages (no matter whether parcels or pallets) around the clock. You also receive all important details about your shipment. All in just a few clicks.
- Daily transport operations: The daily departures of our lorry fleet lets you arrange shipments for Paris and Strasbourg seven days a week.
- Arrival of your shipment within two to four days: Together with our strong partners, we ensure that your package arrives at its destination as quickly as possible.
For more info on our loading days, take a look at the “Destination station” on this page.
Ship partial and full loads to France.
As a logistics all-rounder, we are a freight forwarder that can handle general cargo as well as much larger orders, such as partial and full loads to France for you.
If you want to send full loads, we provide you with an entire lorry to optimally stow your goods. For partial loads, you receive part of the lorry. These lorries transport your goods directly from the dispatch location to the destination. This reduces the travel time, as no additional intermediate stops are required for handling and other orders. The risk of damage is also reduced.
Compared to general cargo, which is used to send a maximum of 6 pallets with a maximum total weight of 3 tonnes, partial and full loads allow must greater quantities to be shipped.
A full load can be used to ship a total of 34 pallets with an overall weight of 24 tonnes. By contrast, a partial load uses between 20% and 80% of the lorry’s (truck’s) capacity. When transporting partial loads, we combine different shipments from different customers to make the greatest possible use of the lorry’s capacity and so make shipments to and from France as cheap as possible for you.
