Freight

Logistics is a far-reaching concept: there’s a lot more to it than mere pick-up, loading, forwarding, unloading and invoicing. We also attend with special care to the less dramatic aspects – the choice of the most effective means of transport, customs clearance, preparation of the goods and “making secure” of the freight according to IATA standards, and since April 2013 we have had our own x-ray equipment and sniffers.

To us, freight means the most reliable and cost-effective transport solution.

Modes of transport

Goal

To find the optimum mode of transport for your freight.

Challenge

The freight must be conveyed as quickly and cost-efficiently as possible to the final destination.

IQS-method

We have an extensive network of freight carriers, Air carriers, shipping companies and partner forwarding agents all over the world at our disposal and can offer the transport mode most suited to your requirements and your consignment. .

Freight organization

Goal

The general organization and implementation of all activities related to the shipment of goods.

Challenge

There are many different handling operations and possibilities. Taking into account the given factors and country-specific regulations, these must be evaluated and a choice made in the best interests of the customer.

IQS-method

Due to our many years of experience in handling a wide range of consignments worldwide, we know the specific procedures in detail. We think ‘from door to door’ and can plan and implement the optimum form of transport for your requirements.

Customs clearance

Goal

Goods to be sent abroad must be brought quickly and safely through the customs. Each day lost in customs clearance costs hard cash.

Challenge

Any amount of bureaucratic ordinances, certificates and documents impede the process and can cause unnecessary delays to import and export.

IQS-method

Our experts will take care of all customs formalities for you and guide your consignments through the inspection procedures from beginning to end.

Technical handling

Goal

Reliable assembly and dismantling of freight by handling agents worldwide.

Challenge

To have the right freight partners worldwide.

IQS-method

In times of increasingly fierce competition our emphasis lies on customer-specific, safe and prompt solutions. A sound basis for this is the functioning international network we have acquired in many years of activity in the charter project business.

On-site support

Goal

High-value or sensitive freight should be escorted and supervised during the entire transport process.

Challenge

To personally deliver the goods to their destination, safe and on schedule.

IQS-method

IQS will personally escort your consignment if required! The freight escort will take care of your consignment from the pick-up to delivery on site. That also includes customs clearance, so that nothing stands in the way of on-time delivery.

Freight security

Goal

The consignment should be dispatched after a safety check or via a certified shipping agent.

Challenge

Since April 2013 all consignments sent from German airports must be inspected. However, many companies do not have the required certification.

IQS-method

The subsidiaries of the IQS Group possess all the necessary technical facilities (x-ray equipment, explosives detector), enabling each consignment to undergo a security check at our head office in Munich. Through our partners we can also guarantee these checks at all other airports.

Equipment leasing

Goal

To pack the freight that it can be shipped safely and inexpensively as possible from A to B.

Challenge

In the area of special logistics standard forms of packaging soon reach their limits.

IQS-method

We have the optimum equipment for all types of freight – also large numbers – in our own inventory. The IQS Group is, for example, the largest non-airline vendor of car racks. We also adapt the equipment specially to suit the challenge or even develop it anew.

Pick-up and delivery

Goal

To transport your freight shipments to the airport, and from airport to the final destination.

Challenge

Lies in the on-schedule pick-up and delivery of your consignments in the recipient country.

IQS-method

A network of reliable freight carriers and partner forwarding agents all over the world ensures smooth pick-up and delivery of your consignments.
