BEST Transport – First choice for environmentally-friendly complex logistics services

BEST Transport has over 30 years of experience in being a reliable partner providing a safe and secure delivery service to suit each individual client. The last three decades have involved a substantial development which has brought BEST Transport from being a prominent and efficient local delivery firm to a provider of complex logistics services on a national and international basis.

Hans Gabrielsson, responsible for the Storage and Terminal business area, stresses the company’s core ambition: “We are in fact one of the pioneers in the area of logistics and delivery services. We have developed a range of innovative solutions which later on have become standard concepts in our field. Our main goal is to maintain our position at the forefront of innovative development, introducing new solutions to suit our clients’ exceeding demands continuously”.

An important turning point
In 2006, BEST Transport moved into resourceful premises in the Lunda Business Park, outside of Stockholm. The move marks an important turning point in the company’s history as well as being an important milestone in the business area of complex delivery and logistics services.
The premises at Lunda Business Park grants access to a set of railway tracks, enabling BEST Transport to load and unload goods fast and efficiently. “To this date, we are unique in providing this kind of service to our clients”, Gabrielsson explains.
There are also extensive storage space available at the Lunda Business Park terminal, as the tracks run straight into the terminal area goods are loaded and unloaded indoors, which also provides an advantage.

Focus on environment and value-added services
BEST Transport also plays an important role in the development of environmentally-friendly logistics. By introducing the Best Xpress service, combining transporting alternatives such as cycling, railway transport and biofuel vehicle transport, BEST Transport has set yet another standard in modern logistics services and especially in investments involving environmentally-friendly concepts.
“In our latest investments we seek even closer collaborations with our customers. We are striving to provide services that are tailored to each and every client’s need, and in doing so we must sharpen our customer focus”.
An example illustrating the company’s advancement is the delivery of over 40 000 complete IT work stations on behalf of a large customer in Stockholm.
“We did not only transport the technical equipment, we also installed software, set it up and ready to use by the employees of the customer. We also removed all previous and outdated equipment for recycling. What we offer is as illustrated a value-added IT logistics service, where our customers can rely on us to provide more than just transport of goods from one place to another”, Hans Gabrielsson concludes.
