SAMEDAYLOGISTICS invests in fast growing logistics newcomer Modus Operations, AB


SAMEDAYLOGISTICS, the leading European operator for Emergency Logistics, takes a majority stake in Modus Operations AB, a strongly upcoming emergency logistics provider in Italy and Sweden, thus significantly enlarging its European footprint

Modus Operations AB, a young and dynamic Italo-Swedish time-critical start-up, was founded in 2018 by Luca Fossati and Roberto Quartieri, two Italian entrepreneurs, who were inspired by the perception that world-class-emergency logistics would find numerous satisfied customers in Italy, due to the poor general logistic performance in the market. Concentrating on Onboard Courier-Services in the beginning, e.g. for exclusive Italian fashion brands in Milan, they succeeded to rapidly grow their customer base, product portfolio, and business KPIs accordingly. Having built up a two-country-approach with offices in Sweden (Visby) and Italy (Milan) right from the start, Modus Operations shows a country coverage in the Northern and Southern parts of Europe which is perfectly complementary to the Samedaylogistics hubs in Germany, Eastern Europe, and the US.

Roberto Quartieri, Co-CEO of Modus Operations: “We are extremely happy that Samedaylogistics decided to invest into Modus Operations, as we will be heavily supported in growing quickly and scaling professionally. We will get both, material and personal resources as well as in-depth-understanding into the nature of our operation. That is what mere financial investors would not have provided to us.”

Holger Zulauf, CEO Samedaylogistics: “The whole Sameday-family is fascinated by the entrepreneurial power and the engagement that Luca and Roberto have shown to get their business where they are today. We are looking forward to being inspired by them with their innovative concepts, but certainly also embrace the fact that we can now enlarge our footprint into the North and South of Europe, thus dramatically extending our reach.”

About Modus Operations AB:
Modus Operations AB was founded in 2018 by two Italian entrepreneurs, Luca Fossati and Roberto Quartieri. Both had been involved into high standard customer service organizations as well as emergency logistics operations before Modus. Being convinced that emergency logistic performance could be dramatically improved, especially in Italy, they decided to launch Modus Operations AB and succeeded to build a profitable business with double digit growth rates. www.modusoperations.se

Samedaylogistics US wins top time-critical executive as future managing partner and CEO


Samedaylogistics, the leading European operator for Emergency Logistics, achieves agreement with Martin Rickenbacher, former time-critical executive at DSV Panalpina, to join the SAMEDAY-group as new managing partner and CEO for North America

Samedaylogistics entered the US-market in 2019 with the acquisition of Global Transportation Solutions Inc., which was renamed into Samedaylogistics US. Both Americas proved to be of vital importance as time-critical-destinations for SAMEDAY for long, so the ground was well prepared with an established customer, partner and courier network to satisfy customer requirements from the American market into Europe and Asia. Having implemented all relevant SAMEDAY-systems and processes in the North American organization over the past 12 months, the time is now right to inject further time-critical logistic experience and also entrepreneurial leadership with Martin Rickenbacher as new managing partner and CEO, to leverage the huge emergency logistics potential in the US-market.

Martin Rickenbacher, CEO Samedaylogistics US: “I am extremely happy that the SAMEDAY-group was open to embrace my entrepreneurial proposal on how to bring the North American SAMEDAY-operation onto the next level. Being engaged in this market for more than 20 years, I am very well connected and able to offer existing and new SAMEDAY customers tailored solutions for their emergency logistics needs. Building on the established, efficient, and well reputed platform that Samedaylogistics has developed offers a great number of opportunities for me and the team.”

Holger Zulauf, CEO Samedaylogistics: “I have known Martin Rickenbacher for a very long time, and in particular from the business relationship I had with him as “Mr. time-critical” for DSV Panalpina in the US. He is the most profiled and knowledgeable expert in the North American emergency logistics market, so it is a pleasure and honour for the SAMEDAY-family to welcome him as the new managing partner and CEO of our US-operation. The business potential of the US market is limitless, and Martin knows the way how to exploit it.”

About Martin Rickenbacher:
Martin Rickenbacher, a dual Swiss and American citizen, is enthusiastic about shipping and traffic coordination since leaving high school in Zurich, Switzerland in the late eighties. Equipped with a Business School and Management diploma, he moved to the USA after a first international assignment in London, taking over the responsibility as an air gateway manager for DSV Panalpina in Los Angeles. He stayed with DSV Panalpina in different locations and positions for more than 20 years, managing their charter network with customized airfreight solutions during the last 10 years. He also holds a Lean Six Sigma Certification from the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Samedaylogistics, a leading global supplier of priority and customized emergency transports, repetitiously secures medical transportation from China to Europe addressing urgent needs to fight the current Corona-pandemic

The current global fight against the Corona-pandemic creates numerous challenges for all kinds of industries. For the logistics sector, one of the key issues is the vast cancellation of passenger flights, leading to a serious scarcity also in freight capacity. Mere freight flights, on the other hand, are dramatically overbooked, so numerous urgent and time-critical transport requirements, i.e. for medical equipment from China to Europe, cannot be addressed.

Samedaylogistics, as a leading supplier of customized emergency transports, is actively filling this critical gap by providing vacant freight capacity up to full charter arrangements, so to secure that vital material against the pandemic is being moved, especially from China into Germany. Customers include national and regional state authorities, as well as medical charity organizations.

One of those transports received a considerable press coverage, when the ruling mayor of Berlin, Mr. Michael Müller, announced via Twitter on the 4th of April, that more than 2 million face masks and 300.000 protective gowns were successfully shipped to Berlin, for subsequent distribution to hospitals, retirement homes and the police. To execute this urgent and time-critical delivery, Samedaylogistics provided a Boeing B747 Aircraft-charter, managed the on- and off-loading of the material and took care of the full custom clearance around the delivery.

Trotz Coronavirus - Stets sicherer und zuverlässiger Transport

Die Meldungen hinsichtlich der Ausbreitung des Coronavirus sind inzwischen weltweit aktuell. Besonders China und Südkorea sind derzeit stark betroffen. Aber auch innerhalb Europas steigt die Anzahl der Fälle an.

Die Supply Chains produzierender Unternehmen jeglicher Branchen sind von der derzeitigen Situation unterschiedlich stark betroffen. Eine Sicherstellung der reibungslosen Produktionsmöglichkeit ist für die meisten jedoch unabdinglich. Gleiches gilt für die Sicherstellung der vorgeschriebenen Hygienebedingungen in allen betroffenen Ländern. Medikamente, Schutzkleidungen etc. müssen in allen Gebieten ausreichend vorhanden sein.

Durch die teilweise nach wie vor verhängten Flugverbote ist eine Beiladung von dringend benötigter Fracht in Passagierflugzeugen zwischen Asien und dem Rest der Welt aktuell kaum möglich. Die Containerschifffahrt ist von dieser Entwicklung ebenfalls betroffen, da die nötigen Kapazitäten in den jeweiligen Häfen fehlen.

Um den reibungslosen Ablauf von Produktionen weiterhin gewährleisten und Bandstillstände vermeiden zu können, muss die Logistikbranche nun Lösungen bereitstellen. Hier empfiehlt es sich auf Experten wie den Notfalllogistikdienstleister Samedaylogistics zurückzugreifen. Samedaylogistics ist führender Anbieter im Bereich On-Board-Courier, bietet seinen Kunden jedoch bereits seit Jahren die Optionen Air Charter, FLEX Expressluftfracht sowie FLEX Dedicated Road an. Genau diese Produkte sind für die Wirtschaft aktuell unabdingbar.

Ein Air Charter stellt derzeit die flexibelste Transportmöglichkeit dar. Durch diesen können Notfall- und Prioritätstransporte stets termingerecht durchgeführt werden. Vor allem bei dem Transport von dringend benötigten Materialien die unter einem starken Verbrauch liegen oder bei der Erreichung von Krisengebieten ist ein Air Charter die sinnigste Lösung. Aktuell betrifft das beispielsweise den Transport von Schutzkleidung, Hygieneartikel etc. Die Mitarbeiter von Samedaylogistics analysieren binnen kürzester Zeit die optimal zu Ihrer Sendung passenden verfügbaren Luftfahrzeuge. Durch ein internationales Netzwerk und jahrelange Erfahrung profitieren Sie von extrem kurzen Handlingzeiten sowie einem höchst professionellen Service.

Mit FLEX Expressluftfracht bietet Samedaylogistics eine Lösung für jede Art von Sendung. Ganz gleich wie groß, sperrig oder gefährlich das zu transportierende Gut ist, bis hin zu tonnenschweren Schiffsersatzteilen oder AOGs ist alles möglich. Gleiches gilt für temperaturgeführte Sendungen von -20°C bis +25°C. Proaktive Transportüberwachung, höchste Frachtpriorität und kurzfristige Verfügbarkeiten sind bei allen zu transportierenden Waren selbstverständlich. FLEX Expressluftfracht wird von den erfahrenen Mitarbeitern weltweit, auch in Krisengebiete, angeboten.

Bei Entscheidung für einen Transport via Dedicated Road garantiert Ihnen Samedaylogistics die Abholung Ihrer Sendung binnen kürzester Zeit nach Auftragserteilung in Deutschland und Anrainerländern. Der Transport ohne Umladung und auf direktem Weg ist individuell auf Ihre Bedürfnisse zugeschnitten.

The On-Board-Courier - The core of Samedaylogistics

Have you ever heard about an On-Board-Courier, OBC or even a Handcarry? No? The company Samedaylogistics deals with exactly these expressions every day. Better said, the On-Board-Courier (OBC) is the heart and at the same time the main product of the company and is daily offered on the market as a logistics service.

An On-Board-Courier, OBC or Handcarry is needed in logistics - especially in the area of emergency logistics - when shipments need to be transported from A to B more urgently or safely than usual.

Typical examples of such situations are an impending production downtime, missing documents for important contracts, but also medical emergencies (blood donations, plasma donations, organs) and urgently needed spare parts for passenger or cargo aircrafts.

As you can probably imagine, these situations, the companies and people involved in each case, present immense challenges in terms of time and cost. A solution must be found. And it must be fast, perfectly planned and yet financially attractive.

This is exactly where Samedaylogistics comes into the game. Samedaylogistics is specialized in the field of emergency logistics and solves such special and sometimes extraordinary logistical challenges every day. And how? With an OBC! And how does that work? Very simple!

Samedaylogistics receives an inquiry about a logistical emergency by phone or e-mail. The company's specially qualified employees now work out the fastest and most efficient transport route within a few minutes and send the customer an offer with the necessary details to solve the logistical emergency as efficiently as possible. Of course, the customer is personally advised regarding the possible transport routes.

Samedaylogistics has an internationally established network with reliable OBCs. If the customer accepts the offer, this means that the available courier closest to the airport of departure is assigned to the order. The OBC is immediately ready for take-off and accompanies the goods to be transported from pick-up to personal delivery, even beyond the destination airport, if this is requested by the customer. Of course, Samedaylogistics also takes care of the customs clearance of the shipment and informs the customer proactively, at every step of the transport, about the status of the goods. Thus, the customer is informed about the current location of the shipment and its condition at all times. After the courier has arrived at the desired destination, the goods are of course handed over to the consignee and the logistical emergency situation is defused.

The obvious main advantages of using a Handcarry are on the one hand the personal tracking of the shipment during the entire transport, and on the other hand of course the maximum speed with which the goods reach their destination, since the shipment is transported on board of a passenger aircraft and baggage has priority to cargo with every airline.

Samedaylogistics offers the service of an On-Board-Courier 24 hours, 7 days a week, worldwide for customers of all branches and every logistic challenge. Characteristics such as reliability, speed and flexibility are a matter of course for the company and are lived 100% in its daily business.

Convince yourself today of the service offered by Samedaylogistics and solve your logistic emergency. You can reach the experts in the field of emergency logistics 365 days a year at any time by calling +49 (0)6107 5051-25 or by sending an e-mail to helpnow@samedaylogistics.de.

Samedaylogistics announces the acquisition of PriorityOBC s.r.o.

„This is an opportunity to move our seven-year-long logistics operation on the Czech Republic market forward. Our knowledge of the local companies with a strong background in the Samedaylogistics brand is the right cocktail for success we believe. Although the economy is apparently slowing down and we are receiving answers from clients such as, we are forced to stop emergency transports for a while, we are and want to be always ready to deal with any time-critical transports in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Samedaylogistics Czech Republic will be the right partner for anyone from our region who wants immediate, personal approach, quality, and expertise in time-critical shipments.” says Vladimir Vergas, CEO of Samedaylogistics s.r.o.

Samedaylogistics Czech Republic is based in Zlin which allows to choose from three airports for take off, Prague, Vienna and Katowice and also give the opportunity to serve Slovakia too.

Founded in 1996 and headquartered in Kelsterbach, Germany, Samedaylogistics has about 40 employees specialised in „Air Charter“, „Next Flight Out“ and „Onboard Courier“ shipments among others. These shipments are usually very time critical in nature and often global, complex and logistics intense with a high cost of failure while operated with strictly defined protocols and control points from order to delivery.

Samedaylogistics believes that it can accelerate and enhance the growth in its chosen services and markets by internationalizing the group. Now, the company has a widespread global courier network of more than 850 professional couriers and offices in Germany, Czech Republic, the US and Romania.
