The German government has announced changes to road tax (Maut) in 2018 and 2019. This will include all state-owned main and highways.
July 1, 2018, the road tax increases from 15,000 km to 40,000 km.
In January 2019 the current rate will be adjusted.
The changes will increase the cost of all transport in Germany as well as transit routes through Germany, but will not affect rail freight between Italy and Scandinavia.
We do not yet know the costs related to this, but as soon as concrete information and calculations are established, further information will be provided.
Are you a customer of Lauritzen and have questions to the German road tax, please contact your usual contact person, who are always available.
It is easy to book and in case of problems/delays we are notified.
Clear departures make it easy to see when to expect our goods will be delivered.
The staff are always friendly, happy and accommodating upon inquiries, which makes you in a good mood when talking to them.
We have tried other freight forwarders but has always returned to Lauritzen.
As we are located in the same city, Lauritzen has always been good at paying us a visit, if something has been missing, which has also contributed to very good relationships among the companies.
If something goes wrong, against expectations, Lauritzen quickly report this. And in case we need goods in a hurry they also find a solution to this. All information is passed on. That means a lot to us.
In addition, Lauritzen transport what we have to Spain, Norway and Sweden.
To us, Lauritzen is not a supplier but a partner.
For us at Garant Holstebro it is all about an end product of the highest quality which also means delivery of our products.
The cooperation that I have personally had with Lauritzen for many years now can only be described as excellent.
I send orders every week and all orders are handled professional. Each request is answered immediately and each case at the concerned factory is handled thoroughly so we always have our goods loaded in time, which means that we can comply with all our deliveries.
In case of accident, I receive an email or a call from the office immediately, so I can always give our customers a message about a possible change of delivery time.
I have to say that I rarely experience such a complete workflow as the staff perform at Lauritzen.
Incredible nice people to talk to and write with. I could mention some names, but I am sure they know who they are, and I am certain that all at Lauritzen performs equal.
When there occasionally are accidents by train, which Lauritzen are not an influencer on, they are good at informing of possible obstacles. Mean while they are also good at remembering our orders and always asking if other orders is to be transported back home. We are very satisfied with the cooperation.
Vi sætter endvidere pris på at det, så vidt muligt, er de samme chaufføre, der kommer ud til os igen og igen.
Sammenfattet ser vi at den service vi var vant til fra Lauritzen fra før, stadig er den samme. chaufførerne gør som de bliver bedt om / i overensstemmelse med vores HMS-krav, så vi er yderst tilfredse med opstarten.
