Seasonal allocation

Seasonal Allocation

If your logistic needs vary over the year, we offer you a Seasonal Allocation. We reserve space for your cargo at a stable rate and in line with your forecasts. If your business demands change beyond forecasts, we provide an option to buy additional allocation.

Unlimited allocation

Unlimited Allocation

If your logistic requirements fluctuate and you need maximum flexibility in your supply chain, we offer you an Unlimited Allocation. We adjust the allocation upwards and downwards and reserve space for your cargo according to your rolling forecasts with no restrictions and at a stable rate.

Get more space whenever you need it

Additional Allocation

If you foresee a need for more space, you can always buy more allocation. Depending on the space available, this can be done as a part of your original contract or as an Additional Allocation in a separate quote. Buying Additional Allocation will not affect your original contract.
