What does Karl Heinz Dietrich do in Germany?

Value added services / Warehousing (storage)

For an international chain of discount supermarkets, containers are received in the port of Hamburg, presented to customs and then transferred to a Karl Heinz Dietrich contract logistics warehouse in Germany. Checks for possible damage to the goods are carried out while the goods are being unloaded and again during storage and loading procedures. If required, the individual parts of items are assembled, bolted or screwed together and made roadworthy (relocating the order penetration point in the supply chain). Once an order has been placed, KHD delivers the assembled merchandise on time to branches across Germany and Europe.

Fabric and textile bales transhipped and stored for a major customer in Hamburg are also not unusual. The goods arrive in containers from Asia and are transported by the company's own fleet in the port of Hamburg and delivered to the central warehouse in Hamburg. Quality and damage checks are carried out on the goods before and during unloading, samples are taken and made available to the customer in Germany for analysis. All bales and textiles are carefully stacked on industrial pallets without causing them any damage. A quality manager monitors the procedure.
In line with customer instructions, batches are then prepared and delivered to the recipients at a later date within Germany and Europe.

The company also works for mail order companies that sell their goods via Amazon, for example, building up its expertise in recent years in the B2C sector (deliveries to private households). For these customers, the company covers the complete supply chain, including the collection of goods from the manufacturer’s warehouse, stock management, quality control, the shipment of goods in Germany and Europe, and returns management.
Karl Heinz Dietrich GmbH & Co. KG also provides the same services to a customer in the dry food logistics sector. This know-how can, however, also be applied to any other branch, since the company’s short communication channels enable it to adapt flexibly to customers’ wishes, implementing these as speedily as possible.

Transport Logistics Romania

Particularly impressive are the Romania which are specially designed to transport industrial trucks.
As a rule, the vehicles are picked up in Northern Germany. Because improper loading can cause damage, weights and dimensions are crucial to securing the best possible use of space and these need to be strategically well planned. The industrial trucks must be secured and lashed to prevent rolling during transport. To avoid unutilized space and to keep an eye on freight costs, it is important to make the best possible use of loading space.

Consolidated containers to Canada

One of the speciality of Karl Heinz Dietrich is the transport of consolidated containers to Canada.
Here, pre-carriage takes place through our reliable systems and subsequent stowage/stuffing in the central warehouse in Hamburg. And no matter whether pallets, hanging garments (clothing & textiles), boxes, cartons or machines - everything is stowed in the container. Our wealth of experience here helps us offer many customers a real benefit. Processing in Canada is carried out by our long-standing partner, with whom we are now celebrating our ‘ruby’ anniversary. All customs matters in Canada, as well as onward carriage from Canadian ports are handled there without a hitch. Especially after the free trade agreement with Canada (CETA, Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement), we see ourselves in a position to offer continuous supply chain management with a wide variety of value-added services.

Sea freight worldwide

Consumer goods for export and import, whether textiles, heavy goods, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, fruit, vegetables, household goods, toys, cigarettes – they all pass through the port operations that pack the containers or load and ship them. And the port of Hamburg is no exception, no matter where the goods and goods come from or go to, be it Brazil, Mexico, USA, Canada, UAE, Africa, India, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines, Korea, Japan, Taiwan – here it is only a matter of import or export.
People living in Hamburg also benefit from the port of Hamburg. The same goes for Karl Heinz Dietrich, with its good and direct connections to the former free port of the Hanseatic City of Hamburg. Our own container vehicles provide for smooth transhipment from the port to the warehouse. Having expanded alongside our customers, we have worldwide representations and this enables us to handle sea cargo as well as sea freight transports for export and import via the northern and western ports. This applies to full containers, also known as FCLs, as well as consolidated containers, which run under the term LCLs. With 75 offices in 23 countries, our global network is available to our customers at any time.

Air freight worldwide

The KHD Group grew up with air freight, with the USA the key target country in the founding years. At that time, valuable pieces of jewellery and collections were carried by hand from Germany to the USA; later airlines were entrusted with this without having to worry that these precious and expensive valuables might get lost.
Today, car spare parts, precision mechanics and electrical engineering, drive and chassis technology as well as communication equipment are regularly flown out of Germany on behalf of blue chip companies. For inorganic chemistry and petrochemical customers in the Rhine-Neckar area, we not only deal with dangerous goods but also normal commercial merchandise.
KHD has been a registered IATA agent since 1950 and is a regulated agent licensed by the Federal Aviation Office. Forwarding services start with consulting, continue with customs clearance, express service, door-to-door, consolidation, and end with the all-in rates for transparent cost calculations.
Customers stand to gain from premium air freight prices not only because of large air freight volumes, but also because the air freight is carried by well-known airlines.
