Digitalization in transport and logistics is an important driver of efficiency, simplification, and lower costs along with better use of resources and existing infrastructure. Digitalization also creates new business opportunities and has the potential to change the way cargo and traffic flows can be organized and managed in the future.
Customers of the AsstrA-Associated Traffic AG corporate group can take advantage of up-to-date and high-quality international transportation and logistics services. In order to meet all Client requirements, AsstrA is continually improving its offerings. Digitalizing road freight service processes is one of the group’s primary focuses.
AsstrA Spain Region Country Manager Artur Antonin comments: “
Road transport is one of our core offerings and has been a hit with Spanish Customers. That’s why the AsstrA team plans to focus on building round-trip transportation capabilities here. Accordingly, company’s experts will be able to optimize transport costs for Clients and ensure the efficient use of AsstrA vehicles and those of reliable transport partners. AsstrA’s fleet of 20 cutting-edge vehicles will grow to include 50 by the end of this year and is often active on Spanish roads. AsstrA dependably provides stable road freight flows that allow Clients to expand their businesses, optimize transport and logistics costs, and save their valuable time in the highly competitive Western European market. Trust and high quality are fundamental business success factors.
When do your Partners trust you? When they feel safe. And how do you help your Partners feel safe? Digitalized services and innovative solutions go a long way towards achieving this goal. AsstrA apps and software are enabling corporate Clients to manage their cargoes and reassure them that their loads are in good hands,” adds Artur Antonin.
One digital innovation in road transportation that AsstrA will introduce in a few months will be the Track&Trace mobile application. It will enable Customers to monitor cargoes and trucks online.
“AsstrA knows that the safety of transported goods is of critical importance to Clients. To maximize the safety of our road freight services, AsstrA will soon roll out a new mobile app called Track&Trace. Currently, corporate group experts are actively testing this application. The innovative initiative will benefit our corporate Clients in many ways. Primarily, our Partners will have full visibility of their cargoes. They will have real-time updates and information about cargo location and will receive advance predictions of possible changes. They will then be able to respond and optimize planning accordingly. Thanks to Track&Trace, AsstrA Customers will definitely save their time and costs and will be able to sleep even more easily,” highlights Artur Antonin.
AsstrA is currently testing an another technology tool that will be launched soon. Suppliers’ Cabinet is a special online platform for managing goods and AsstrA’s available trucks. The dedicated software does not only streamline and simplify workflows but also gives AsstrA Partners management control over their goods. AsstrA is redefining road transport.
A significant portion of all the corporate group’s road freight projects are executed on European trade lanes. Because the direction of AsstrA’s business development depends greatly the demands of our corporate Clients, AsstrA has been present in Spain for many years in order to be closer to Spanish Clients. AsstrA’s most popular services there are FTL and LTL road transport from/to Spain. All these projects will be fully integrated with all the above mentioned digital innovations. The main development focus is on road transport trade lanes between Germany, Italy, Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, and France.
On this wide network of trade lanes, AsstrA Customers profit from comprehensive and innovative single-pallet road transport services for various cargo types and sizes.
