International workshops and field services
The ICTS Group has entered into a strategic partnership agreement for the maintenance, repair and other services with Waberer’s International Nyrt and Link Sp. Z o.o. in relation to their rolling equipment. The partnership resulted from the ICTS Group’s International focus on providing services through its various workshops and cross-border mobile field activities.
Waberer’s is the leading own-asset vehicle operator in international full truckload transportation in Europe and the market leader in Hungary in domestic freight and complex logistics services. Link, the well known Polish-based Group, was recently acquired by Waberer’s.
The partnership with both companies is in line with the ICTS Group’s ‘zero defect’ strategy, with which the company is focusing on becoming an axis in Europe based on its rental and full service concepts.
Full service package
The ICTS Group has undersigned an extensive rental agreement with EKOL. The transaction, which was signed in the presence of Mr Ahmet Musul, Chairman of EKOL, and Mr Jan Coene, President & CEO of the ICTS Group, concerns the rental of 125 Kässbohrer mega huckepack curtainsider trailers divided into 100 TIR mega long-term rentals and 25 short-term mega rentals. As part of the rental agreement, the ICTS Group will also perform APK (Dutch MOT) and preventive inspections at the ICTS Group’s international workshops in Zeebruges in Belgium and Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
