Flowers for Germany

The logistics company from Versmold now also transports fresh cut flowers

Versmold – June 16, 2016 – Thermotraffic expands its offer for temperature-controlled inner European transportation of cut flowers with a short shelf life. The new offer comprises product-specific transportation of fresh flowers and aims at customers in Europe. Transportation between destinations is carried out by truck at a constant temperature between +2° and +6° Celsius. 

Thermotraffic focuses its new activities on overland transportation between the classical flower markets in the Netherlands and Germany. Another focus is the continued transportation of cut flowers flown into Frankfurt airport from abroad. A centralized dispatch center coordinates and supervises transportation until delivery.

To guarantee shelf life and keep delivery times at a minimum, Thermotraffic deploys two drivers on longer distances. Time loss due to mandatory breaks during the driving period can thus be minimized. Thermotraffic therefore guarantees quick and on-time delivery of the delicate goods. As fresh flowers are only loaded at freight centers in the evening and have to reach their consignees early in the morning, they are usually transported at night. The trucks are equipped with lifting platforms and they stop multiple times as the goods are delivered successively to their consignees as agreed. Cut flowers are unloaded at their consignees and stored at provisioned locations, if agreed. Time-consuming transshipment and interruptions of the cold chain are thus prevented.

„By expanding our offer, we react to the increased demand of on-time logistics solutions for flower transportation. Our customers count on our service and reliability”, Falko Thomas, managing director of Thermotraffic GmbH, says.

Whether roses from Kenya or tulips from the Netherlands, Thermotraffic has proven itself as reliable logistics partner for the transportation of cut flowers.
