Herfurth Logistics – a Herfurth Group Company – is an international freight forwarding and logistics company with European roots, active since more than 100 years.

They have their own offices in 7 strategic locations and can count on the support of an extended worldwide network.

This enables them to offer a complete range of freight services around the globe:

• Ocean Freight
• Air freight
• Road freight
• Warehousing
• Intelligent Cargo Care
• Customs services

In addition to these core activities and driven by high quality standards (ISO 9001:2008), they constantly strive to enlarge their pallet of services by creating Intelligent Cargo Care, a value added logistics program that goes further than just freight forwarding only. A few examples:

Project & OOG cargo

Their teams are extremely specialized in the shipment of project & OOG cargo. This implies the handling and shipping of part loads with exceptional dimensions or weights or even the dismantling and shipping of industrial projects or removals.

For this purpose they make use of all the exceptional multimodal transport modes, including obtaining the necessary road transport licenses and escorts and the rental of mobile cranes on site or in the port (floating cranes if necessary). They can also perform the packing of all the goods.

The ocean shipments will be made on regular liner services or they will make use of part charters or complete charter vessels. 

RO/RO
Roll-on/Roll-off shipments concern shipments of rolling material on board specialized vessels (regular shipping lines or chartered vessels). They ensure the ocean freight for any type of vehicle:

• Cars, Vans, Trucks and Trailers
• Mobilhomes, Buses, Fire Trucks, Cranes
• Tractors and all kinds of Agricultural Vehicles
• Concrete Trucks and all kinds of Construction Vehicles, even on tracks
• Helicopters, Aircrafts

By this means they can also organize shipments of indivisible loads by stuffing them on mafi-trailers or lowbed trailers:

• Yachts
• All kinds of Construction Material
• OOG cargo

For high-value or delicate vehicles (luxury cars, old timers, racing cars) they are more likely to recommend a container solution, but they can also provide the necessary protective packing.

Live Animals

When live animals need to be transported over long distances, airfreight is the best solution with regard to the animals’ well-being.

Thanks to their knowledge of all the specific rules and regulations they can guarantee a safe and secure transportation.

Besides pets, the most common animals to be transported are horses and birds, but also animals for zoos or agricultural purposes.

They handle all animals with care and with the same concern for their well-being.

We welcome Herfurth Logistics to the XLP team!
