In-house solutions to take away
Information is also part of our valuable freight. That’s why stable communications systems must run in the background so that we can concentrate on the important things. We have been using in-house solutions since 1993 because our IT specialists develop efficient systems and update them continually.
Our own warehouse management with stacker control system not only makes us happy, our customers use it, too. From receipt of goods to stock management and invoicing of services, everything runs under one system. Whether on traditional traffic routes or for congestion-free data flows: for your valuable freight we use safe transport systems.
We find the right solution for you
Do you want to optimise your processes and find logistics solutions that fit perfectly? If you could well do without an ordinary 9-5 support service, then you’ve come to the right place. Our working relationship starts with a full consultation. We listen carefully, ask the right questions and identify what you really need. After that it’s the time for fresh ideas and good solutions.
We develop concepts with you that work. Our accumulated experience with global players and SMEs will bring you concrete success. The more intelligent your logistics, the more profitable is your value chain. And that means: With us, good advice is not expensive but valuable – and a sensible investment in the future.
Experienced practitioners sit down at the table with you
Do you prefer to deal with people who will later become your contact persons in daily business? Do you like to discuss your requirements and plans with partners who have direct experience in the sector? We think exactly the same. And as an SME with the focus on customer orientation, there is no other way but to use this approach, which for us is not a “luxury”.
Your partner in our company has his or her hand on the pulse of our joint business relationship. He or she ensures that what was discussed in the offer phase is put into practice. And guarantees day-to-day communication.
In combination with our flat hierarchies this results in a key benefit: Communication channels are short and direct and decisions quickly made. Both internally and externally Our management is hands-on in its approach and contact is always quickly set up with customers and colleagues.
Take advantage of our experience
Trust develops from time spent working together on successful projects. Trust that leads our customers to use our experience and knowledge in a special way: To optimise their own processes. This is possible because we have given ourselves the task of thinking outside the box. And because we pursue with you the goal of a lively partnership.
Also for you this means being able to think differently. Profiting from our experience and thereby freeing up time and having a clear head for important deals and developments. And counting on having a partner at your side who actively supports you with new ideas for your plans and their implementation.
We think that no-one should make their life unnecessarily hard. Can we make it a little easier for you?
You look – we find
Our customers are unique. Companies with particular requirements, values and goals We adjust to yours when we’re speaking with you. For an off-the-shelf solution will only function in rare cases. That’s why we listen to you, analyse and use tried and tested strategies as well as fresh ideas to create innovative solutions for your future.
From our group of specialists we form a team according to the requirements which plans and develops your order on an interdisciplinary and professional basis. Across locations, departments and sectors we work out ideas and alternatives that help you to reach your goals. And then discuss with you which planning framework would bring the benefits you seek.
Let other people look for their own solutions – we only offer solutions for OUR customers!
Our customers have a soft spot for consistency
For many of our customers, reliability and continuity are two of the most important aspects of working with a service provider. For only a long-term partnership gives the service provider the know-how to think in terms of the customers’ processes. And the possibility of recognising optimisation potential. Therefore we are proud to have worked with our customers already for many years. And to jointly create solutions and develop business with them.
For this we depend on the competence of our staff. A team with character, the majority of whom has been with us for many years. And this is combined with the consistency that comes from a medium-sized, family-owned company. A consistency that results in better planning capability, also for our customers.
Or would you prefer to have a partner who develops a new business strategy every year?
Strong performance needs strong partners
As a medium-sized company we work successfully with our own branches and subsidiaries but also in partnership with other companies. We need and build on this network to offer you high-quality products.
It enables us to combine for you wide-ranging offers and good conditions on both national and international levels with our special strengths: proximity to customers, flexibility and quality. The buzzwords flying around nowadays to describe this are however less interesting for us. Because we know: You are interested in the content and not in the packaging.
A multi-talented fleet
The “Full-Load Network” is the founding division of ELVIS AG and was established in 2006. Essentially this division deals with transport in the conventional trans-European cargo area.
The vehicles deployed for this are mainly semi-trailers (articulated lorries) with a loading capacity of 90 cubic meters. These vehicles can take up to 25 tons of freight and are still the all-rounders among heavy goods vehicles.
In total there are over 35 member companies with c. 6,000 units in this division. Optimisation of the truck and trailer swaps and joint appearances at major customers are two of the important matters for the network.
The European Network for Systematic Part-Loads
No more under-utilisation of capacity, complicated load combinations and improvisation with partial-load transport!
With the first German network for the handling of HGV part-loads, ELVIS Teilladungssystem GmbH has created the conditions for conveying part-loads for the first time systematically from every freight forwarder in Germany to every place of delivery in Germany and the neighbouring countries without having to lump together inefficient load combinations with your own fleet of vehicles.
The fundamental idea behind this network is the combination of depot and hub transport under a unified IT and organisational structure. New and exciting here is the time-saving and safe transshipment of approximately 1,500 tonnes of part-loads every night to the central ELVIS hub in Knüllwald-Remsfeld.
Successful on the market since 2011, the Part-Load Network has meanwhile connected 75 national and 20 international partner depots and forwards daily over 120 heavy goods vehicles from the central hub.
Innovative and powerful logistics concepts
As a neutral logistics service provider ELVIS Lead Logistics develops innovative and powerful logistics concepts for various industry segments. The spectrum of services comprises consultation, concept design and central control of supply chain processes.
