Craiss Poland triples transport volume for commercial vehicle manufacturer

• Craiss Logistyka Sp. z o.o. acquires follow-up order for factory-to-factory transports

• Polish subsidiary is now achieving up to 30 tours per day

• Logistics company pushes ahead with specialisation in the automotive industry


Matthias Jelen, Managing Director of Craiss Logistyka Sp. z o.o., is delighted to receive the follow-up order from a commercial vehicle manufacturer for which the Polish subsidiary of Craiss Generation Logistik GmbH & Co. KG tripled its transport volume.

Craiss Logistyka Sp. z o.o. is expanding its services for a leading international commercial vehicle manufacturer. After a new invitation to tender, the Polish Craiss branch based in Jasin has been awarded the contract by the Munich-based group. The two companies have already been working together for 14 years. Due to the increase in production volume at the Krakow factory, where the manufacturer produces lorries for the Eastern European market, the contract was renewed and additionally extended by three and a half years.

"Our high quality and constant reliability, which we have already demonstrated in recent years, have paid off," says Matthias Jelen, Managing Director of Craiss Logistyka Sp. z o.o.

Since March of this year, the logistics service provider has tripled the transport volume for its existing customer. A total of 95 lorries are currently in operation between its plant in Munich and the assembly factory in Krakow, which deliver primary components such as cabs for the tractor units manufactured there.

For the order, Craiss Poland has completely fitted its equipment for over-height transports in order to be able to safely move the sometimes bulky components. To that end, the vehicles they use possess an interior height of 3.20 metres.

Craiss' order volumes in the automotive sector are steadily increasing — for Jelen, that entails a development that exactly matches the strategy he has adopted: "The automotive division is becoming increasingly relevant in the Eastern European countries, and is a growth factor for us that we are proactively promoting."
