Nowadays, over 90% of the goods that are in stores have been transported by road. The reason for this is that road transport with trucks is an inexpensive, fast and flexible way of transport. Our trucks drive daily to and from a wide variety of destinations all across Europe. Thanks to the on-board system that is built into our trucks, the route that the driver must drive can be real-time adapted. This way there can easily be looked at what time the driver will be in your neighborhood today or tomorrow so he can pick up your shipment without having to make a big detour. This automatically means less transport costs for you.
Types of road transport
HST Groep offers various types of road transport so there is always a way that suits your organization and your shipments:
At groupage transport, also known as cargo or fine distribution, consignments and shipments from multiple customers are transported in one truck and delivered to different locations. Thanks to our transport networks and partnerships, HST Groep is not only accurate in groupage transport, but the transport is also quick and costs efficient: you share the costs of the trailer with other customers who also use space in the same trailer for their consignments.
Part loads and full loads
Also for sending larger shipments, HST Groep is the right partner for you. HST Groep consolidates both (large) part load shipments (LTL) that do not take up an entire trailer, as well as full loads (FTL) that do fill a complete trailer. This kind of cargoes does not need to be transshipped into another truck and doesn’t need to be re-loaded or unloaded in transit.
Special road transport
Besides the regular types of road transport, HST Groep also excels in special transport. HST Groep has, for example, thermos trucks for goods that should remain a certain temperature. In addition, HST Groep also provides dedicated transport, construction site delivery and HST is specialized in ADR transport.
With dedicated transport, you as our customer use our equipment and our driver, but you decide how much and what kind of cargo you carry, where the goods need to be picked up and loaded and what route the driver must drive. It is like you rent the truck and the driver. It is also possible to adjust the entire truck to your needs and corporate brand.
Construction site delivery
Transporting goods and materials to construction sites is a highly specialized service: many construction sites have no address yet, so it can be difficult to determine where the goods have to go to. An additional difficulty is that many building materials are very large and heavy, causing some trucks to sink into unpaved ground. This makes it difficult to many logistics service providers to offer this service. Read more on construction site delivery.
ADR road transport
For the transport of dangerous goods by road apply special laws and requirements. ADR goods can be for example explosive, flammable, toxic, radioactive, infectious and aggressive. When not handled with care, these substances can cause for dangerous – sometimes even life-threatening – situations.
High quality service and a good image is just as important to us as it is to you. Partly because of this, we value it highly that our chauffeurs look shipshape and neat. This means for example that our drivers wear their uniform to make a professional appearance when they interact with your clients. We’re not happy until you are completely satisfied with our service.
Our driver = your ambassador!
It is possible to add plus services to regular and special road transport. Plus services may for example include time delivery which means that a shipment needs to be picked up or delivered before or after a certain time (for example before eight o’clock in the morning). Other examples of plus deliveries are transport insurance and receiving a text message upon delivery. Our customer service can tell you more about these plus services.
