Seven Panalpina offices across Germany – in Stuttgart, Dusseldorf, Kehl, Munich, Hamburg, Hanover and Berlin – have been cooperating with Arcese Espana in road freight since early 2012, but in a bid to further optimize its European network, Panalpina will now tie its Frankfurt and Nuremberg locations into the network.
“As partners, the two companies complement each other perfectly,” says Antonio Pacciolla, who is responsible for Panalpina’s road freight partners and the subcontractor management in Europe and the Middle East. “Panalpina has access to one of the largest mega-trailer fleets in Europe, and by expanding our partnership with Arcese we can combine the volume flows in less-than-truckload traffic at the main departure points in Germany, France, Italy, Belgium and Spain. In addition, Panalpina Iberia uses Arcese for the local distribution and collection of air and ocean freight shipments.”
As a result, the groupage and fleet operator specialist Arcese is now not only the strategic cooperation partner for Panalpina in road freight in Belgium and Italy but also in Spain.
For Arcese Espana, the intensified collaboration between the two companies also brings additional benefits. “Arcese Espana gains access to Panalpina’s road freight network in Central and Eastern Europe. By working together with one of the world’s leading air and ocean freight forwarding companies, Arcese can provide its local customers in Spain a much wider service offering,” Pacciolla explains.
