Andreas Schmid Group launches partnership with Rara Logistic

Direct groupage line from Sibiu to Gersthofen

Gersthofen, September 21st, 2023. The Andreas Schmid Group has established a direct groupage line from Romania to Germany in cooperation with its Romanian partner Rara Logistic from Sibiu. On August 01, 2023, the first vehicle started from Sibiu to Gersthofen near Augsburg.

The new groupage line not only enables the smooth transport of general cargo shipments from Romania to Germany, but also the efficient dispatch of shipments from Germany to the Romanian network. There, shipments can be delivered to recipients the very next day.

Partnerships as part of the internationalization strategy

During a visit by Rareș Sârbu, Managing Director of Rara Logistic, to the Andreas Schmid Group, the start-up phase was positively assessed and the decisive details of the new general cargo cooperation were decided. The partnership promises an optimized logistics solution for customers and companies on both sides and increased efficiency in German-Romanian goods traffic.

“We are very excited about this promising cooperation with Rara Logistic,” says Alessandro Cacciola, CEO of Andreas Schmid Group. “Establishing new, strategic partnerships is part of our internationalization strategy. In addition to part and full loads, which we have increasingly offered to and from Romania since the opening of the Romanian location in Arad, we can now also cover groupage transports within our own network.”
