We take it for granted: Standard services
- Comprehensive distribution logistics
National distribution shipments have a regular lead time of 24 / 48 hours. More than 90 depots in Germany form a close meshed network with short distances for each participant.
- At home in Europe
With ILN you can cover 37 European countries. More than 60 international partners organize fluent connections of your international groupage shipments. There are daily departures to most destination countries, so your cargo is on a fast and safe way to the consignee. Please find our departure schedule under International Depots.
- Comprehensive procurement logistics
No matter if goods are transported to your depot or if you organize a cross traffic: ILN offers all possibilities to manage your procurement systematically and Europe-wide!
Shipment collection in Italy, bound to a consignee in Sweden? ILN enables you to organize standardized international cross traffics (our so called 3-Point-Procurement service).
- Transport of dangerous goods
Safe, fast and economical: Dangerous goods are handled according all legal regulations within the ILN network. Transporting those hazardous goods is a sensitive issue, so it has a high priority. All ILN partners are instructed and sensitized about the proper handling of those goods within the network in an annual Dangerous-Goods-Training.
Your shipment needs to be delivered at a certain date outside of the regular lead times? No problem, just choose the ILN fixed-date service.
The journey is the reward: Premium Services
The delivery is guaranteed to be done within the regular lead times. This additional service is offered for all shipments’ route sections within Germany and Austria. It can be booked for both distribution and procurement shipments.
The delivery is guaranteed to be done on the day after feeding the shipment into the network. You can choose between OV8 (Delivery until 08:00AM on the next day), OV10 (Delivery until 10:00AM on the next day) and OV12 (Delivery until 12:00PM on the next day). This premium service can only be booked for all domestic distribution shipments within Germany and Austria.
- International Overnight OXI
Your urgent, international shipments are transported to the receiving gateway TSP on the normal, economic line haul. It is further loaded on a separate delivery vehicle and is brought directly to the consignee. Using regular, inexpensive line hauls for the main runs provides less distance to be driven by courier. This service reduces the costs for such express deliveries to a minimum.
