Value-added Services

Roland Team proves how comprehensive our service concept is every day with a wide range of additional Services and special services such as safe dangerous goods transports.

Many containers are out of line: some contain dangerous goods and may only be transported under strict legal regulations. Others need constant cooling. Still others are loaded with waste, where separate regulations apply. Some need a high security seal. And almost all of them have to be custom cleared. Our experienced employees know how to deal with all of these cases and carry out all associated tasks in a solution-oriented and reliable manner.


Everyone who knows us knows: Roland’s employees do everything to relieve their customers of any worries or troubles during transport. We look forward to challenges that we can master for you. If you need a special additional service for your transport, let us know.
