optimax® combines the personal service of a family business with the performance and capability of an international haulage firm.
With our own, ultra-modern fleet and a dedicated team who are there for you around the clock, we are a composite professional in our field.
That’s why you can expect the best service from us, from a technical and an organisational point of view.
All of the vehicles we use that have a load capacity of 24 t comply with the latest emission standards (Euro VI) and have satellite navigation and positioning (GPS). This helps us to keep track of vehicle and load movements, as well as when our staff are driving or taking a break.
All transport units are equipped for transporting dangerous goods in accordance with ADR. We replace our tractor units with the latest generation every two years. Our drivers receive regular internal and external training, and it goes without saying that they have all of the necessary qualifications.
How it all began. A success story from Saalfeld.
Founded in 1997 by Elias Georges Daniel ( died in 2006 ), optimax® Logistik + Spedition GmbH started out in Saalfeld with a focus on regular groupage transport to and from the UK. Success quickly became apparent with the result that the first apprenticeship was offered in the following year, and the number of employees grew continuously.
The expansion of the portfolio, first to Ireland, later to our other destinations in Europe, and since 2015 also worldwide, was a logical consequence to complete our range of international transport services. This is also connected with the continuous expansion of our vehicle fleet and the enlargement of our team.
From 2006 – 2020 Markus Daniel, the brother of the company founder, managed the fortunes of the company together with Kathleen Swora; she was the first apprentice at optimax.
Since 2021 the two managing directors Mr. Andreas Hausdorf and Mr. Chris Sperber have successfully continued to lead the company.
In all this time, we have grown as a company and team with our challenges. We are particularly pleased with the cohesion, the pleasant working atmosphere and the extraordinary commitment among our colleagues.
