The central hub: The main traffic centre
The central hub in Hauneck near Bad Hersfeld is located geographically in the centre of Germany’s Autobahn system and thus in the centre of Europe.
The central hub is operated by 24plus hub logistics GmbH & Co. KG, a subsidiary company of 24plus Systemverkehre GmbH & Co. KG. So the hub operating company and the transportation company are working hand in hand.
Overnight delivery on a daily base
All system partners of 24plus in Germany and Europe serve the central hub nightly. Within a few hours up to 70 trucks arrive there, are unloaded then reloaded with individual packages for their recipients and dispatched. The central hub was established in 1999, expanded in 2008 and today is still one of the most modern handling companies for general cargo in Europe.
Optimised double decker loading
For the hub links standardised trailers are used, featuring double decker loading for optimal space usage and climate control to protect cold-sensitive goods in the winter months.
