For this reason we would like to tell you a little bit more about our partner today.

The central business readiness is the courier service that Veloblitz offers. Other services have been added in recent years. On the one hand, these are software applications for the development and sale of personnel scheduling and the support of customers in the establishment of Same Day and Next Day Delivery solutions, on the other hand, the training of employees in the areas of scheduling and courier service.

Via the Swissconnect network, Veloblitz serves the whole of Switzerland with shipments to and from Zurich and is thus in daily contact with other courier companies. In addition, Zurich main station is the most important Swiss hub for shipments that need to be reloaded. Incidentally, our corporate customers can benefit from this offer. 

The fact that Veloblitz has been independently carrying out previously outsourced car shipments since 2014 makes it easier to handle cross-regional demand. Often, car shipments can be transferred to Velos or cargo bikes at the city limits. Through this intertwining, Veloblitz continues to guarantee the most ecological and efficient delivery in the extended greater Zurich area.

Always the most environmentally friendly solution

Veloblitz services as well as internal processes are always subject to the aspect of the highest possible environmental compatibility. The company expects the same from its partners and suppliers.
