Fueled by the rise of e-commerce, and the demand for expedited delivery times, the logistics market is currently amid a transformational renaissance.
GEODIS partners commercially with Hellmann, expanding its operations within France-Germany axis
This new partnership will enable GEODIS to strengthen the transport supply of its Distribution & Express line of business to Northern Germany, while offering Hellmann access to GEODIS’ distribution network in France, which is unmatched.
GEODIS, a global leader in transport and logistics, and Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, a global transportation provider head-quartered in Osnabrück, Germany announce the signing of a partnership agreement for the ground transport of goods between France and Germany, starting on September 1, 2020.
Already working together as partners in the UK market, the two companies aim to offer their customers a first-class level of distribution between the two countries.
Through this new arrangement with the Hellmann Group, GEODIS broadens its German distribution system, particularly in the central and northern part of Germany. For its part, Hellmann will entrust GEODIS with its French shipments.
The numerous branches of Hellmann’s network will be used on a daily basis to connect France with all major German industrial regions and will offer an average delivery time of 48 hours.
“This partnership positions GEODIS as industry leader in terms of trade between France and Germany. It will offer a unique cross-border grid that will allow our customers to enjoy attractive delivery times between both countries. We have been working successfully with Hellmann in Great Britain for several weeks. With our relationship now firmly established, we look forward to expanding this collaboration,” stated Stéphane Cassagne, Executive Vice President of GEODIS Distribution & Express.
