After months of intensive preparation, the time has finally come. From Wednesday 2th of December, Mandersloot will be the first logistics service provider in Europe with 3 LHVs (Longer Heavier Vehicles) on an international route to supply the Czech Republic.
Mandersloot, specialized in conditioned transport of mainly food, vegetables, fruits, plants and flowers, will use the LHVs mainly for the line-haul of groupage goods between the parent company in Scherpenzeel (gld) and the subsidiary in Prague.
Sustainability is of paramount importance at Mandersloot. This year, the company in Scherpenzeel, is equipped with solar panels and in addition, several LHVs are already being used for inland transport. Director, Ronald Mandersloot, sees the deployment of LHVs over long distances as an important next step in the process to reduce the company’s carbon footprint.
In addition to its head office in the Netherlands, Mandersloot has several modern premises in Central Europe. From these offices, Mandersloot is able to supply all major retail organizations in Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Lithuania and Latvia on a daily bases. With a fleet of more than 200 vehicles and a customer-oriented focus, Mandersloot is one of the market leaders in conditioned groupage transport to Central Europe.
In this way, we would like to thank all suppliers, agencies, authorities and employees who made this fantastic milestone possible.
