Flat racks are perfect to transport our breathable cargo all over Europe

"Flat racks are perfect to transport our breathable cargo all over Europe!”

The wooden pallets and crates we manufacture need fresh air while being transported, so a regular closed container wasn’t an option. 5G Multimodal had the solution to our problem. Their flat racks are perfect to transport our breathable cargo all over Europe! Its open construction makes loading and unloading super easy. Our transport flow has never been better.”
