We evolved from years of experience and the dynamism of a medium-sized business.
Zentis Logistik Service GmbH was founded on 27 November 1998 as a subsidiary of Zentis GmbH & Co. KG. This allowed us to combine our years of experience with the dynamism of a medium-sized enterprise, enabling us to respond especially flexibly to the rising demands of the growing logistics market.
Quality, sustainability and innovation make us successful.
The importance of logistic services at Zentis has grown in recent years through business with external clients. That’s why the Zentis Group decided in 2009 to include logistics as a fifth strategic business area. Success factors in logistics lie above all in quality, sustainability and innovation. All of the transport undertaken by Zentis Logistik Service GmbH complies with DIN EN ISO 9001 and the International Food Standard (IFS).
Expertise and technology
Modern tractor units as a foundation for modern logistics.
Thanks to regular training, our truck drivers are professionals in handling sensitive foods.
All of our tractor units and trailers are fitted with GPS-assisted telematics systems. This allows us to constantly monitor vehicle positions and statuses, and to track temperature seamlessly, which is essential in the transporting of fresh goods.
Our technical workshop allows us to ensure that our vehicles remain in perfect technical condition and cleanliness.
We’re very much aware of our responsibility to the environment. Our young fleet already consists of many modern, ecologically advanced EURO5 vehicles.
