International transport

GRIESHABER’s International Transport Division is your competent partner for global transport solutions.


Oversized and heavy transports

Exemption certificates

We distinguish between different types of permits and/or transports requiring authorisation:

  • oversized transports with high volumes regarding height and/or width and/or length,
  • heavy transports with normal dimensions but high weight,
  • oversized and heavy transports with high volume and high weight.

Oversized and heavy transports have dimensions and/or weights that exceed the legally permissible limits of the Road Traffic Licensing Regulations (StVZO) and/or Road Traffic Act (StVO) and therefore require a permit according to § 29 Para. 3 StVO or an exemption certificate according to § 46 StVO, in addition to the exemption certificate according to § 70 StVZO.

The permit according to § 29 Para. 3 StVO or the exemption certificate according to § 46 StVO is issued by the responsible local road traffic authorities (district administrations or the town hall of towns and boroughs).

And we take care of precisely these detailed aspects so that you do not have any sleepless nights about your heavy and special transports – instead your/our transport solution ensures great success worldwide.


Overland transports

Your goods need to arrive in optimum condition and on time? Then not only is perfect securing of the cargo required, but also qualified drivers. The GRIESHABER Logistik GmbH with its fleet and its co-operating partners guarantee that the overland transport functions smoothly within Europe and every consignment reaches its destination in perfect condition.

GRIESHABER personnel will find the best transport route for you and your specific task – whether by truck or rail – and make you an individual offer. Whereby we want to support you as much as possible so that you do not have to worry about any transport issues.

Our services include:

  • partial and complete loads,
  • consolidated and single-item consignments throughout Germany and Europe,
  • special journeys and express services,
  • transport of heavy goods,
  • electronic customs clearance, and
  • packaging services & storage.

Sea freight

We are particularly ambitious regarding the transport of sea freight. We place great value on an excellent relationship of mutual trust with you, which we underline with a detailed Quality Management System that is firmly established within the company.

To and from all seaports we organise your:

  • FCL and LCL transports,
  • break-bulk consignments,
  • project consignments of all types,
  • worldwide cross trades, and
  • complex door-to-door deliveries.

Costs for transporting sea freight are relatively low compared to airfreight. Excellent when your goods do not need to reach the destinations very quickly, unlike with airfreight.


If transport by ship will take too long then use the alternative: GRIESHABER airfreight solutions.
We transport your goods to their destinations reliably, rapidly and very effectively by air.

GRIESHABER’s experts ensure that we offer you a solution for the complete handling of your airfreight beyond the airport too. In addition to managing the transport and customs formalities, this could also involve professional handling of high-quality and sensitive goods. We can also undertake such tasks as purchase order management and partial or complete charters.

With our longstanding partners, stationed worldwide, we can connect you with all global trading centres via airfreight.

Project forwarding

One of the GRIESHABER Logistik GmbH’s specialities is the forwarding of project consignments.

We describe classic project forwarding as one of the most complicated forms of transport because it involves the entire range of performance – from the procurement of differing vehicles and accurate dispatch planning, to the processing of loading tickets and packing requirements, as well as the preparation of all accompanying and customs documentation.

Our aim is to offer and implement the projects according to the door-to-door principle.

Based on precisely determined customer requirements and freight specifications, we install an efficient and accurate delivery chain involving differing means of transport and carriers for your complex project transports.

Do you have further questions? We look forward to your call or message.
