Hellmann UK groupage service with German firm

German logistics firm Diehl Spedition has signed a deal with Hellmann Worldwide Logistics UK to operate a daily groupage service between the Hellmann UK hub operations in Lichfield and Basildon to Stuttgart and back based on express trailers.

Under the contract both companies will be able to offer 72 hour door-to-door services with pre 10am deliveries and allocated time slots.

Diehl Spedition will benefit from Hellmann’s Star Service structure which provides customers with special transit time options.

Matthew Marriott, commercial director of Hellmann UK, said: “The daily system that Hellmann UK will run with Diehl will complement our current structure and enhance the service and growth potential for the German market.”
