Transcargo BV is your partner for international expedition, storage and transhipment and value-added logistics. We are a growing, dynamic company that offers professional and customised services. We operate in the European market and far beyond from our centrally-located offices based in Roermond, Limburg.
A short introduction: Rik 
In July 2015, Rik Elders (26) strengthened the Planning Department at Transcargo. He started in this department as an assistant planner and thus offers support to other planners.

Rik is also involved in the registration of orders in the system. Furthermore, he will manage the pallet administration and undoubtedly he will be responsible for a number of other tasks in the future. 

Outside of work, Rik plays badminton twice a week, is a leader at Young Netherlands Waubach (a youth organization for everyone from 6 to 18 years old, where members play sports, are involved in creative activities and explore nature) and also like to do fun things with friends, such as going out, going to the cinema and cycling.  
High reliability and very little damage
Transcargo keeps track of its ‘on time delivery’ and ‘undamaged delivery’ scores.
Two values that are very important to our customers. 
Regarding delivery reliability, every month we examine the total number of shipments, the number of shipments that were on time and the number of shipments that were not on time.

March 95,43 %
April 94,30 %
May 93,81 %
June 94,54 %
July 93,46 %
August 95,83 %
On average, this is a score of 94.92%.
Regarding undamaged delivery, every month we examine the number of shipments, the number of undamaged shipments and the number of damaged shipments.

January 99,70 %
February 100 %
March 99,75 %
April 99,73 %
May 100 %

Short sea to Spain and Portugal
There are always sharp fluctuations in the number of trucks for road transport in the offerings to and from Spain and Portugal. This is mainly a matter of supply and demand.

Transcargo manages the capacity shortage by using sea transport with 45ft containers.
The duration is usually somewhat longer but the advantage is that there is always sufficient capacity.
Increase in rates
For some time now, we have seen an increase in the supply of freight. This is mainly due to the increased economic activities. Naturally, this is good news. As a result of the increased demand for trucks, the capacity has come under pressure.

According to research (Transport Market Monitor, TMM) of research firm Transporeon and Capgemini Consulting, various calculations show that the rates to and from several destinations have increased by over 10% compared to one year ago.
