In 1999 WILMS Tiefkühl-Service shareholders established a freezer distribution centre in Niederkrüchten, North-Rhine Westphalia. It has since been used for handling frozen, chilled and ambient consignments within the region plus as a basis for shipments to the Netherlands and Belgium.
Due to the vast extent of the site, WILMS Transport is able to operate based on the cross docking principle. For example, goods arriving can be reloaded directly on to new vehicles without having to provide temporary storage for them. This means the company guarantees continuity in the cold chain and operates in the clients’ best interests by using time economically. Like cross docking, the transshipment process also used emphasises the proven space requirements, which WTR has available.
