What ist logistics?
Logistics in general is the concept of executing the customer-oriented flow of materials and designing the accompanying flow of information in parallel. According to Reinhardt Jünemann, the goal of logistics is to provide the right goods, in the right quantity, at the right place, at the right time, in the right quality, at the right cost.

How to calculate loading meters (LDM)?
To calculate loading metres, the length is multiplied by the width of the package and divided by the lorry width (2.4 m). This gives the formula L x W in m / 2.4 m. For example, a Euro pallet (1.2 x 0.8 m) has 0.4 ldm (1.2 x 0.8 / 2.4m).
This does not take into account stowage loss, which is necessary in practice to secure the load. Therefore, there may be deviations in the calculation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the respective contact person.
What is the difference between a freight forwarder and a transport company?
A freight forwarder acts as a logistics service provider and organiser, whereas a haulage contractor or carrier carries out the direct transport of the goods.
