AsstrA designs and provides effective solutions for valuable cargo transportation of any type. The transport of high-value goods like electrical appliances, high-tech electronics, industrial equipment, precious metals, perfume and pharmaceuticals, and other valuable cargo involves extra security requirements. Goods with a definition as valuable have a declared value above, for example, € 1000. What constitutes value cargo may change from shipment to shipment, from several hundred euros to more than a million euros. The amount of customs duties may also vary and directly affect the total cost of transportation.
AsstrA’s mission is to provide our customers with the safest, highest-quality transportation of high-value cargo, with minimal risk of damage or theft. At the AsstrA group, we offer our valued customers a full range of services related to high-value cargo transportation across Europe, the CIS, and Asia. We transport cargo according to every customer’s needs and offer optimal shipping routes fully compliant with the highest safety standards. Our partnership with trusted transport companies allows us to provide fair prices and Swiss-quality cargo delivery.
The value of cargo depends primarily on its properties and intended application. As a rule, the greatest invoice values are seen in the chemical, pharmaceutical, construction, and hi-tech sectors, as well as those with high cultural significance. AsstrA monitors changes in the international legal regulation of cargo transport and ensures safe and fast delivery based on the specific characteristics of each product.
AsstrA experts arrange on-time and safe valuable goods transportation in full accordance with international and regional regulations. The choice of the vehicle always depends on each customer's needs and the type of their cargo. AsstrA's team sources optimal vehicles with tracking systems, anti-theft devices, alarms, and other necessary protective equipment. After analyzing all the details of specific high-value goods to be shipped, we will organize multimodal transport by road, sea, railway or high-value air freight.
