Headquartered in Dortmund, Albonair specialises in the development and production of urea dosing systems for commercial vehicles in the on- and off-road sector. Demand for cost-effective exhaust aftertreatment solutions continues to increase as global emission standards for diesel engines are becoming more stringent.
As one of the most up-to-date providers in the market, Albonair has a need for efficient handling of extensive supply chains in the context of globalised manufacturing processes. In order to meet this challenging business environment, the company not only needs a simple forwarding agency, but a reliable and versatile logistics service provider with comprehensive experience and appropriate know-how.
They were looking for a provider who offers flexible solutions depending on the required mode of transport, and who can also take over customs clearance. Another important requirement was to handle correspondence, shipment tracking and document handling all from one source throughout the supply chain. The selection process resulted in a decision in favor of cargo-partner, a full-range provider of information logistics, whose team of employees centrally manages and coordinates the processing of all required services.
Michael Franke, Logistic Projects Manager at Albonair, who is fully convinced of the jointly developed and process-optimised full range package, states: “Whether optimal transport solutions or comprehensive supply chain management – Albonair can concentrate on its strengths and core competencies, while cargo-partner provides the logistics services to our utmost satisfaction.”
Thanks to cargo-partner’s long-standing cooperation with airlines and shipping companies, the logistics provider can reliably secure freight capacity for Albonair’s weekly air and sea freight transports. This includes LCL shipments between the company’s headquarters and the Albonair sites in Taicang, China or Chennai, India. If required, cargo-partner will also arrange for the same-day implementation of emergency shipments by air between the branches. Most recently, the total transport volume has reached around 100 tonnes, with a clear upward trend.
In addition to these transport services, the door-to-door solution created by cargo-partner also includes the warehousing, consolidation of deliveries and import customs clearance. The “SPOT Visibility & Collaboration Platform” ensures transparency along the entire transport chain and simplifies communication and document management for both companies.
