Freight transport - more than just driving from A to B

Controlling is delighted: Not only does it come on time and is worthwhile, but it also saves us money. We find: Reliable freight transport from A to B isn’t an artform, it’s common sense. That’s why we don’t just transport tonnages, but quantities of all sizes.

We do this by meticulously planning from the first to the last mile and by optimising international logistics concepts. This always results in a more freedom, lower costs, and more reliable supply chains. We don’t just think on the train tracks, but beyond.

We know the networks, the players, the singularities and the paths in and around Germany. We can do ‘fast and spontaneous’ as well as ‘calculated and constant’ – but always reliable.

In short: What we promise today will happen tomorrow.

We keep logistics on schedule and within budget.

Whether its data coordination from container loading in China, customs handling, or optimisation of logistics chains during loading and unloading. We know every port, every transshipment point and every bottleneck in the transport and loading chain. We don't just drive more efficiently, we plan smarter.

Thinking until the last mile

Thinking until the last mile

Domestic or international freight transport is a basic business that we have mastered with confidence. Our customers value us for conceptual innovation: by thinking through logistics chains right to the end, on both a small and large scale.

Large vehicle fleet and lots of experience

Large vehicle fleet and lots of experience

Almost 40 locomotives move more than 50,000 tonnes a week in and around Germany. We strive for optimisation. We live by reliability and we’re usually ahead of schedule - thanks to our experienced dispatchers, independent specialists and our own specialised workshop, the LOCON Service GmbH.

Durable relations and strong hubs

Durable relations and strong hubs

We travel throughout Germany on fixed routes. Our hubs in Bremen, Hamburg and Pinnow are the backbone of our flexibility. We transport almost all classes of goods, especially in Eastern and Northern Germany and combine rail with truck, ship and air freight.

Uckermark Container Terminal (CTU)

Uckermark Container Terminal (CTU)

The Uckermark Container Terminal in Brandenburg plays a key role in our logistics chains. It is here that we take care of loading and unloading various types of freight, as well as container inspection and on-site repair.

Freight and special transport

Freight and special transport

We take on general cargo, container and bulk goods transports as well as special trains - in addition to scheduled services.

Our own workshop

Our own workshop

We check, maintain and repair our locomotives and cars in our own workshop, LOCON Service GmbH. This not only ensures reliability, but also the ability to test out a wide range of ideas and solutions.

The greatest ideas are born here.

Here, what starts as "impossible" ends up as "Ok, here's how we will do it". Our conference room is where we come together and where some of the smartest logistics concepts are created and developed for leading national and international customers.

Our vehicle fleet for freight transport

Almost 40 locomotives are permanently available in our fleet.

Our workshop, the LOCON Service GmbH in Pinnow, ensures the operational readiness.

And many more miracles to boot.

„Planning and scheduling are of course the key. But it is only with creativity and teamwork that we can really use and combine all our resources from all traffic. From the loading plan to cost optimisation, we are well ahead of the game.“
