Pallet Delivery/Chartering

GEODIS' Pallet Delivery/Chartering service uses Eurodirect to meets all of your needs for chartering lots, pallets and full loads in France and across Europe. Our dedicated teams work closely with customers for unique contact and personalized follow-up on all stages of transport.

A large fleet and carefully selected partners

We operate a large fleet of vehicles – from VLs to semi-trailers – which are adapted to the volume and processing of all types of goods (ADR, Wines & Spirits, Pharmaceutical products, non-standard products, high value-added products, and more). We also work with regular partners who we select, audit, qualify and recognize for their reliability. We make sure to control deadlines – 48/72 hours for the main European cities – as well as constant monitoring of shipments and quality of services that exceed 99%.

Personalized contact and tailored implementation

Our 300 charterers are spread all over France in each of our 140 agencies. They offer personalized contact and the immediate implementation of the best solutions and personalized rates (by weight, pallet, surface area, etc.). They also have vast knowledge of economic zones and local specifications.

Whether you choose 'Spot' or 'Regular', our charters take your specific needs into account (crane, lifting, exceptional convoys, industrial transfers, 24/24 provision of means with driver, etc). Our technical solutions are therefore made-to-measure (wedging, stowage, etc.).

Customs and tax expertise

We also provide customs management and tax representation (AEO Certification to streamline and simplify customs procedures, VAT management and recovery, excise duty management, Incoterms management).

A simple and proactive approach

GEODIS can take care of the CNR/CMR documentation for security regarding the identity of the charter – you won't need to fill out transport documents. We will also manage customs clearance activities such as customs entry and duties, and export and import outside the European Union. Finally, we'll take care of the receipt of your deliveries and confirmation of order support, followed by shipments and POD available on your client portal, an on-line shipment management solution.
