4PL Intermodal GmbH
As a digital logistics service provider, we support our customers in organizing and completing the transport of goods from industry and trade.
Digitizing intermodal order networking is the goal of 4PL.
Partial services are processed together in such a way that intermodal customers can successfully find and process their desired connection. We put ourselves at the service of the intermodalists with individual and standardized software products.
Networking as a solution
“Together towards the goal” – even the best individual TMS software reaches its implementation limits if the systems behind it do not communicate as desired. We understand our task to be, among other things, to automatically network efficient and proven system landscapes with one another in such a way that every TMS is compatible.
Only then is it possible to showcase our competence (visibility and marketing of free resources) in the best possible way. Only in this way can the most efficient utilization of the resources offered be implemented.
4PL Intermodal entwickelt:
- successful order networking of partial services
- innovative IT-based solutions for logistic networks
- high quality intermodal supply chain solution
