Freight Forwarding


Line Haul Traffic/Rendezvous Traffic

The geographical spread of our branches distinctly favours strong line haul traffic between the various business premises. Night lines are thus maintained to Waldshut/Dogern, Berlin, Nuremberg, Heilbronn and the Ruhr region.

These transports are organized in a regular scheduled system so that on the one hand a high degree of service and on the other compliance with the prescribed driving and rest periods can be ensured.

Distribution Centres

Every branch is responsible for the distribution traffic in its respective metropolitan area. The following regions are covered by the BAUER/RISTELHUEBER group:

  • Dogern branch - Switzerland
  • Mannheim branch - Rhine-Neckar/Palatinate Metropolitan Area
  • Callenberg branch - Saxony
  • Berlin branch - Berlin/Brandenburg Metropolitan Area
  • Decin branch - Czech Republic

In order to cover the whole of the greater area of SaxonyThuringia over 30 runs are daily organized and monitored at the Callenberg and Berlin branches. We can thus ensure pick-ups and deliveries within 24 hours. Mannheim and Dogern present further distribution centres in Germany which can service their respective surrounding areas.

Combined Traffic

Combined Traffic does not only make ecological sense, in this way distant destinations can also be given overnight service which could not be served by truck because of the prescribed driving and rest periods. The share of volume which is handled by rail lies at 20%. Several freight units are picked up and dropped off at the respective combined traffic terminal daily.

The following routes are regularly served in both directions:

  • Leipzig - Basel
  • Italy - Germany

National and International Long Haul Traffic

The whole of the Federal Republic Germany is covered by our national long haul traffic. In our international long haul traffic our focus lies on the transport of shipments to Switzerland and the Czech Republic. We naturally carry out hazardous goods transports for you as well.

Fleet of Vehicles

BAUER operates its own modern fleet of vehicles. In addition, longstanding, experienced contract partners support us in our various transport tasks. Our own vehicles are regularly serviced by service partners or in the company’s own garage. The whole fleet has an average age of two and a half years.

Fleet Management System

The use of networked communications between dispatch and vehicle and a satellite-based fleet management system enables uninterrupted and professional communication. It is thus possible to locate the vehicles via satellite at any time. This improves the tracking and tracing of shipments. By determining their exact location the scheduling of the vehicles can also be improved. This leads to higher flexibility and improved information, clients can be precisely informed as to the shipment’s status at all times. Thanks to intelligent navigation systems, drivers can be safely directed, also with regard to traffic jam forecasts.
