ONLINE Systemlogistik connects Europe
General cargo network with largest hub & spoke system in Europe goes from strength to strength
Paderborn/Munich, Germany, 9 May 2017. ONLINE Systemlogistik GmbH & Co. KG is presenting itself with the motto "Delivering Quality. Thinking Europe" at this year's "transport logistic" trade fair in Munich. The motto of the Paderborn-based general cargo network focuses on the two critical factors of quality and European coverage. In 2016, these again formed the basis for the system's strong growth. The company is also positive about 2017.
"We are very well-positioned across Europe and are focusing on further international expansion. In our dense and well-connected network, we benefit from a Europe without borders," emphasises ONLINE Managing Director Sandra Bugiel. This clear "yes" to Europe is also apparent in the stand design. Symbolic buildings and structures from numerous European countries illustrate the trade fair motto. They also set the scene for presentation of the ONLINE logistics concept, which is based on the largest hub and spoke system in Europe.
ONLINE has further strengthened its international presence in 2017. A new partner in Switzerland joined the network on 1 February. In total, the general cargo system provides daily transports to 19 European countries and it is also part of the Allnet Group, via which an additional, direct, daily connection to the Astre hub in Lyon was established on 1 January.
ONLINE again increased its shipment volume in 2016. This reached 2.716 million shipments and the tonnage increased to 1.129 million tonnes. In each case, this is an increase of more than 2% compared to 2015. The system network changed its legal form in 2016 to become a limited partnership (GmbH & Co. KG). The majority of the partners became limited partners. "This development further increases the stability of our network. In the new structure, we can jointly develop the network more easily," states Bugiel.
In addition to quality and internationalisation, digitalisation is also an important topic for ONLINE going forward. Many of its processes are already digital. These include, for example, the entire communication process between partners. Digitalisation has pushed communication beyond the use of email and telephone. The communication is now carried out via an internal platform. Furthermore, all processes are subsequently traceable and can be called up at any time. Further digitalisation steps will follow in the future.
