Welcome to Transped, the specialist in European haulage.
Since 1983, our company has placed great emphasis on its commitment to professional competence, quality, sustainable management, and total customer orientation which has resulted in success and steady growth. As a traditional family business with 197 employees* and annual sales of approx. 188 million Euros*, we have maintained a very personal approach. Reliability, flexibility and swiftness are typical for our business, and we make sure to care for individual customer requirements as well as long-term, fair partnerships. These are the attributes that represent the brand Transped Europe.
Our core competences lie in European haulage using a wide range of vehicles as well as in intermodal freight transportation. In our head office in Wörgl, Austria, our service orientated dispatchers communicate with our customers in 22 languages, using the latest technology.
Our corporate values are the basis of our daily business and are actively embraced by our owners and employees. Our visions are encouraging. Both are set down in the company’s mission statement and are binding for us towards customers and suppliers.

Transped Europe at a glance – solid values & numbers.
We are a family enterprise, dedicated to sustainability and long-term success. Our reputation as a reliable long-term partner is documented in these figures*:

Transped Europe was founded in 1983 as Transped International Transportgesellschaft m.b.H and was situated in Thaur near Innsbruck. The company started out with only a few employees, but has been growing rapidly after the relocation of the head office to its current site in Woergl in 1997. Currently, the company currently employs 197 people* .
The change of the site location was a strategic decision. The step to move to Woergl was taken due to its central location (situated directly on the North-South axis) and because of its dynamic development as a business region, particularly in logistics.
The construction of the new head office started in 2006 and in early 2008 the modern low-energy building was inaugurated. Transped Europe currently employs more than 197 people*.

In order to secure a successful future for our company and to ensure and expand social acceptance, we have committed ourselves to a model of value oriented management.
We are highly aware of the importance of our behaviour in our daily contacts with customers, co-workers, suppliers and other business partners. Hence, not only do we comply with social standards and values as required by law, but we incorporate them as part of our mission statement.
The core of our company policy is based on common entrepreneurial behaviour as well as on the understanding that we need to learn from one another. Our sound financial management gives us the room to develop our business further, but that alone would not meet our high standards.
Transped employees recognise and fulfil the requirements of their customers, thanks to excellent know-how in combination with personal efforts. Every single employee is aiming for our collective goal, the ZERO-FAILURE-PRINCIPLE, an important sign of quality. Preventive action instead of re-action and a personalized high-value care guarantee optimal cooperation with our partners.
We attribute a measurable benefit to growth that is orientated not only towards commercial, but also towards spiritual objectives and driven by innovation. As natural resources become scarcer, prospective tasks, such as sutainable transport capacity, require the joint forces of science and commerce. Our existing knowledge base, joined with the most recent perceptions regarding the development of the European market, has resulted in a company that gains advantages through know-how for the benefit of our customers and suppliers. Our presence in existing markets is backed by an increasingly higher market share and the establishment of an excellent image. New markets will be gained in the future, and our corporate growth will be maintained by improved brand awareness and intensified networking.
Transped is made up of employees from quite a number of nations. The variety of languages and cultures represented in our company creates a better recognition and understanding of the mentalities and cultural characteristics of our business partners abroad. Such intercultural interplays promote flexible thinking and action while representing an important driver of employee engagement, which is one of our key objectives.
We acknowledge our responsibility for safety and environmental protection. Hence, we are fully compliant with the legal requirements of all countries we serve. If possible and appropriate, we try to even exceed these standards. We set working conditions to ensure the health and well-being of the individuals. The long-term protection of the environment and the most economical use of available resources represent fixed parts of our company policy.
Committed to our tradition, Transped focuses on long-term partnerships. The permanent focus on customers and suppliers is daily business for every Transped employee. Our aim is to establish the way we handle our business as an European standard for logistic services.
The high competence of all Transped employees is the result of a continued and intense job training. The option for further personal developments leads to additional motivation and job enrichment, and as a consequence to additional benefits for Transped and its business partners.
Consistent customer orientation is our main goal and forms the basis of our commercial success. Accomplishing or even exceeding the expectations of our customers is what rewards us when competing with other transport providers.
Our corporate management creates an environment in which all employees may develop their abilities and use them for the benefit of the company's common mission, which is stated in our company policy.
"A company is only as good as its employees and co-workers!"
In order to allow our employees to develop their skills, we have various available educational alternatives. Furthermore, an employee’s participation in decision making is common practice. Every single employee at Transped is striving for improvement, which allows us to achieve excellent performance.
Our business processes, workflows, internal interfaces between different departments as well as external interfaces towards our customers and suppliers are well defined and mastered. Every single process is oriented to our customer's requirements and needs.
All business processes are considered in connection with one another, concerning also the interdependences that bind them together. Every single process is then evaluated and optimised. Therefore, we are working with our management system efficiently and possible areas of weaknesses are detected and removed quickly.
Commitment to constantly improve in all areas of business is the cornerstone for commercial success. All employees contribute to this ongoing operation to guarantee improvement, relating to both an excellent level of service quality and workflow.
Current data and information are needed to make appropriate decisions. A number of key performance indicators are available for analyses and serve as a basis for decisions.
Proactive collaboration by our suppliers is necessary to fulfil the requirements of our clients. In order to optimise the entire value chain, we cooperate closely with our suppliers, aiming at long-term relationships based on mutual trust.
For years, Transped Europe is committed to continuous optimisation, achieving advantages for our clients, our employees as well as our cooperating freight carriers. The following certificates confirm our successful efforts for optimised services, high quality, exceptional security and efficient processes while considering the environmental effects we are responsible for as a transport company:
Since 1996 the Transped Europe management system is certified by ISO 9001:2008. Furthermore, we are able to fulfil the special requirements of two of the most delicate branches when it comes to quality and security: the chemical industry and the sector of fast moving consumer goods. This makes us a qualified partner also for many other branches and industries.
These results represent a high concordance with the requirements of Cefic (European Chemical Industry Council), which is confirmed by our latest SQAS certificate (Safety and Quality Assessment System). We are conducting all of our transports according to the CMR Convention (Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road), which includes all necessary policies for the insurance of the transports. Furthermore, our liability insurance covers damages up to 5 million Euros.
Transped Europe relies on a highly motivated, capable and well trained staff. We are guided by the conviction that only a motivating, modern working environment that is characterised by independent action and strong teamwork can enable us to provide the highest level of service for our customers on a daily basis.
We only communicate with our customers in their native language. We currently speak 22 languages fluently.
At Transped Europe, ongoing training and qualification is not just a slogan. Each floor of our head quarters in Wörgl has a modern staff training room to provide ongoing training and education in the workplace and to form powerful, committed team units.
Each of our employees bears great responsibility - regardless of rank or duty. Considering quality as an overall process, every employee is involved in our quality management system and in doing so makes an important contribution, documented by our ISO 9001:2008 certificate, and the SQAS certificate (Safety and Quality Assessment System).
Transped Europe has always placed great emphasis on quality and transparency. Early we recognised the importance of certifications to ensure quality for our customers in a competitive market and to document our internal processes in accordance with specific quality standards. The ISO 9001:2008 certification is just one example of the standards we meet.
Over the years we have developed a comprehensive quality management system that integrates every employee and supplier as well as our resources. Ongoing training and education, implementation of the latest standards, controls and audits, investments in modern IT and communication systems, our customer feedback programme as well as a modern management structure form the basis of our quality management system.
The achieved results highly correspond with the requirements set by Cefic (European Chemical Industrial Council) and are verified by our recent SQAS certificate (Safety and Quality Assessment System).
To ensure a systematic and holistic quality assurance policy, our transport partners are part of our quality management system. A standardised procedure ensures an excellent selection of professional and reliable haulage partners, many of whom have been members of the Transped team for several years.
Additionally to specific standards of the vehicles, a CMR insurance with a guaranteed level of cover, proven road safety, and driver qualifications are mandatory components of our quality requirements.
Our corporate activity has always been characterised by a sense of responsibility towards present and future generations.
This is substantiated by our focus on the most resource-efficient and environmentally friendly intermodal freight transport options. Furthermore, we only use low emission HGVs. Also our modern head offices in Wörgl conform to our environmental policy, featuring energy efficient technologies and CO2 neutral air conditioning.
Our principles are laid down in our mission statement, and are binding for us and our customers.
Tilt trailers are available with or without sideboards. They are specially designed for volume shipments. Most tilt trailers have a side curtain and an Edscha roof.
Internal width: 2,43 – 2,45 m (loading width under curtain)
Internal height: standard 2,65 m internal height or more (note: internal height does not equal side or back loading height!)
loading weight (payload): standard 25 tons (up to 27 tons possible)
Floor: thickness of about 4 cm (wood or aluminium); suitable for forklifts of 5 – 7 tons
Pallets units: 34 Euro pallet units or 26 floor pallets, pallet box possible
Doors: double-wing doors, rotating rod lock
There are two types of road trains: the standard ones with a total length of 14,00 m or the jumbo road trains with a length of 15,40 m. Jumbo road trains have a loading space of approx. 120 m³.
The structure of a jumbo road train is equal to that of a mega trailer.
Some data of road trains and jumbo road trains:
Internal width: 2,45 – 2,50 m
Internal height: 3,00 m
Loading weight (payload): 15 tons, max. 21 tons, depending on the number of axes
The coil trailer is equipped with a coil trough inserted into the floor. They are specially designed to ship steel coils and heavy aluminium coils. The trough prevents the coils from moving.
Internal width: 2,45 m
Internal height: 2,50 m
Total length: 13,60 m
Length of coil trough mostly from 6,50 m to 9,00 m
Loading weigth (payload): 24 – 25 tons; intermodal payload of up to 28,5 tons.
Coil trailers are equipped with Edscha roofs, as most steel coils are loaded by crane.
Megatrailers are mainly used for high volumes shipments, offering about 100 m³ loading space. One advantage is the possibility to load the megatrailer by crane, thanks to an Edscha roof. Due to its high volume capacity, it is also used to transport DIN grid boxes, Euro pallets, etc.
Internal width: 2,50 m
Internal height: 3,00 m inside height throughout full length
Total length: 13,60 m
Loading weight (payload): standard 25 tons
Floor: About 4 cm thickness (aluminium or wood); suitable for forklifts of 5 – 7 tons.
Pallet units: 34 pallet units (Euro), no pallet box.
Grid boxes: Floor space for 96 DIN grid boxes.
Note: When loading using a ramp, the dock height must be taken into account. With standard ramps with 1,20 dock height, new generation megatrailers featuring air suspension have to be used.
Jumbo trailers (also called gooseneck trailers) are mainly used for high volume transports. Available with sideboards (tilt trailers) or as a curtainsider (tautliners). Thanks to their special design, various loading options are possible.
Some data of jumbo trailers:
Internal width: 2,45 m (sideboard) or 2,50 m (curtainsider)
Internal height: 2,50 m (before the step), 3,00 m after the step
Lower bed size: approx. 10,00 m
Gooseneck length: approx. 3,60 m
Trailer weight: 7 tons
Loading weight (payload): 24 tons
The frigo trailer (or reefer) is completely closed and needs to be loaded through its backdoor. The required isolation as well as the temperature controlling aggregate lead to a relatively high trailer weight.
The most important data for reefers:
Internal width: approx. 2,45 m
Internal height: about 2,60 m
Trailer weight: 7,5-8,8 tons
Loading weight (payload): approx. 22 tons (depending on manufacturer)
Loading height: about 1,20 m
Door height: 2,60-2,65 m
Pallets: about 34 Euro pallets; pallet box possible
The walkingfloor is a hydraulically driven sequentially moving trailer floor. Hence, pallets or other products may be moved inside the trailer and loaded without a forklift. It is especially useful when no forklift can be used, or when the loading is taking place indoors where bulk materials cannot be tipped.
Internal width: 2,45 m
Internal height: 2,50 – 2,60 m
Length: 13,60 m
Loading weight (payload): 24 tons
Tippers are used for the transport of bulk materials (p.e. construction waste or animal feeding supplies) as well as spillage (p.e. sand or soil).
The tipper bridge moves hydraulically and allows the unloading of goods by tipping either to the side or to the back of the trailer. Rear tippers can only unload bulk material to the back. The loading areas mostly have a rounded shape in order to prevent goods from getting stuck.
Additionally, there are two-side and three-side tippers. Two-side tippers are able to unload bulk material on both sides while three-side tippers additionally can unload to the back.
Roll-off tippers, skip loaders and dumpers are vehicles for branches with special requirements.
Tippers have an open roof which can be covered, if required.
Tipper bridge volume: 20-55 m³
Payload: 25-27 tons
Total weight: 40 tons
Rail trailers are semi-trailers that fulfil all requirements to be transported by rail and therefore are suitible for intermodal transports. Reinforcements of frame and platform as well as protective plates on the edges are necessary details for railway loadings and the higher payload involved. Rail trailers are avialable with sliding tarpaulins or sidewalls.
Due to the higher playload requirements of up to 28,5 tons, rail trailers are mostly used for coil transports with trough.
Rail trailers equipped with Joloda rails are used to transport paper rolls.
Length: 13,60 m
Inner Width: 2,45 – 2,50 m
Inner height: standard 2,65 m
Payload: standard 24 tons (up to 28,5 tons possible)
