PACCAR Parts Fleet Services welcomes 1,000th customer
German transporter GEORGI Transporte decides to opt for PPFS
PACCAR Parts Fleet Services (PPFS) has welcomed GEORGI Transporte from Germany as its 1,000th customer. PPFS offers international operators pan-European contracts for parts supply and services at DAF Dealers.
PACCAR Parts Fleet Services was launched ten years ago. Floris van Wijk, Director Fleet Sales PACCAR Parts Europe: “The programme relieves companies of any burden involved in purchasing parts and maintenance throughout Europe. We guarantee uniform prices for parts at all participating DAF dealers and we simplify company administrative processes with collective invoices for the maintenance of the entire fleet, wherever in Europe that maintenance is carried out. In addition, PPFS customers are offered excellent credit services, thereby eliminating the need for direct cash payments.
GEORGI Transporte connects all major cargo airports
GEORGI Transporte is specialised in air freight, for which it uses dedicated roller bed trailers. PPFS’s 1,000th customer connects all major cargo airports through its European network and guarantees the fastest delivery time. The company, with its home base at Frankfurt Airport, started with two trucks in 1953 and now operates over 400 vehicles (almost 50% DAF) and 450 semi-trailers. GEORGI Transporte has 950 employees working at 9 offices all over Europe.
Focus on transport
The company's fleet includes an increasing number of DAF trucks — in fact, DAF XF trucks will soon make up half of the total. GEORGI Transporte is determined to grow further and has decided to concentrate on its core business: transport. Hubert Hohl, Head of Truckfleet at GEORGI Transporte: “PPFS enables us to further increase our efficiency. With many locations and trucks located all over Europe, it is great to have a single point of contact for the purchase of parts in each country where we operate. This also has a major benefit in terms of administration: instead of handling separate invoices from all of the dealer locations where we previously bought parts, we now receive one central invoice.”
‘PPFS contributes to our profitability’
During the official event celebrating the 1,000th PPFS contract, Jürgen Georgi, CEO of GEORGI Transporte, added: “Our relationship with DAF and PACCAR Parts has been in place for over 30 years now and is based on a real partnership with the aim of constantly optimising transport efficiency. The PACCAR Parts Fleet Services programme is a great example of a service that contributes directly to our profitability.”
