An advertising expenses

allowance worth the

price of a house

A check to the value of EUR123,000

changed hands in Duisburg – and

there were smiles all around. Everyone

involved had reason to be very happy:

In May Partner-Store paid out a handsome

advertising expenses allowance

worth the price of a small detached

family home to the management of

Pape in Duisburg after the company

bought 41 Scania lorries.

Pape Logistics Deutschland GmbH

was founded in 1985 by Mr. and

Mrs. Pape in Duisburg. The haulage

contractor grew relatively quickly

and steadily and today has 25 branches

across whole of Germany. Head office,

where the management,

accounts

department and

human resources

is based, is still in

Duisburg.

Pape has up to 600

lorries on the road

at any one time, depending on the

season and volume of shipments.

Around 100 of these vehicles are used

by DHL for transporting postal items.

The remaining 500

usually transport

fresh produce and

frozen goods for

well-known retailers,

mainly on

Germany’s roads.

But the broomyellow

lorries also

deliver to customers

in Belgium and England.

“Quality is our top priority. That

is why we’re so glad to have found

a strong partner in Deutsche Post’s

Partner-Store, for whom quality is

just as important as for us,” said Frank

Schulte, Manager of Pape Logistics

Deutschland GmbH.

After you have negotiated your individual terms and

conditions for a vehicle with your dealer and ordered

the vehicle in the colour broom-yellow, simply fill in our

form (you will find a copy in this issue of Partner-Store

Then you need to send us the form, including a copy of

Special-Offers

Take a look at our Special-Offers

webpage: You’ll find some offers that

are hard to resist, because things don’t

come much cheaper than this!

From 15th May 2004 we will be

offering you an advertising expenses

allowance of EUR 350 for a Krone

interchangeable trailer. That’s EUR

100 more than the normal offer

price.

From the beginning of June we

will pay you a handsome advertising

expenses allowance of EUR 3,333

when you order a Mercedes-Benz

vehicle (3.51 t to 7.49 t total permissible

weight) together with an

ERHARDT fixed body. That’s EUR

expenses allowance.

at our Special-Offers page – it has

different, attractive and interesting

offers every two weeks.

VW TradePort - Used Vehicles from Volkswagen

Mr Markus Veit (right) from

VW handing over a VW LT

to Mr Walter Hennrichs from

Partner-Store.

Our partner VW has launched a new

concept for the used commercial

vehicle market called TradePort. The

opening move has already been made

at the industrial park in Wildau, near

Berlin. That is where anyone who is

interested in the project can choose

from amongst 60 current commercial

vehicles. If needed, a further 5,000

vehicles are also available. TradePort

stands for quality and reliability: each

vehicle in the pool is reconditioned

and comes with a CarePort Value

Guarantee, a quality standard which

completely does justice to the VW

brand. Volkswagen Gebrauchtfahrzeughandels

und Service GmbH in

Wildau offers its customers hassle-free

trade-in deals. In addition,

vehicles can be leased or financed

through the Volkswagen Bank.

The plan is to expand the network of

TradePort centres in Europe up until

2008. So anyone who is interested in

acquiring a used VW commercial

vehicle will not have far to go.

On the road to success with broom-yellow photos

The winner photo

Exakt Transport Logistic GmbH in Ettlingen, Germany, had every reason to be happy back in April:

The company won the photo competition run in our last Newsletter and received an advertising

expenses allowance of EUR 250 for sending in a great photograph of its broom-yellow fleet.

“We just love the colour yellow,” said

Gerhard Becker, Commercial Director

and senior manager at Exakt

Transport Logistik GmbH. And that’s

true if you consider that 36 out of the

company’s 40-vehicle fleet in Ettlingen

are broom-yellow. The business

is currently going from strength to

strength, which is why it has to move

to a new and bigger site. In May this

year Exakt will have completed the

move, and then there’s no reason not

to expand the fleet too.

Any vehicles which join the fleet

after that will of course be painted

broom-yellow – naturally with the

help of Deutsche Post’s Partner-Store

advertising expenses allowance. “The

Partner-Store advertising expenses

allowance provides backing to hauliers,”

said Gerhard Becker. And he

added: “Deutsche Post has done a

good thing and I have no reservations

whatsoever in recommending the

scheme to my colleagues.”

Interested in winning a EUR 250

advertising expenses allowance? How

vehicle on the internet so that your

customers can view it and your company

Times have changed. And that’s exactly what car manufacturers also realised, so they have reacted

by launching a new generation of commercial vehicles. VW has introduced the new T5 and the new

Caddy along with a completely new concept. The two new transporters are a perfect combination

of ride comfort, safety and innovation all in a front-wheel drive.

The new generation of transporters

The new Mercedes Vito with rearwheel

drive is their equal in every way.

The new transporters, with the maximum

amount of reliability, safety and

fuel economy, are ideal vehicles for

parcel transportation or for emptying

letterboxes.

Engines - the power within

VW has developed the T5, which is

available in a choice of two petrol and

three diesel engines. It is available with

an 85 kW/115 HP or 173 kW/235 HP

petrol engine or a 77 kW/105 HP,

96 kW/130 HP or 128 kW/174 HP

diesel engine.

Mercedes-Benz has the same selection

in engines on offer for its Vito – only

lower-powered. The Vito is available

with a 65 kW/88 HP, 80 kW/109 HP

or 110 kW/150 HP diesel engine, or

a 140 kW/190 HP or 160 kW/218 HP

petrol engine (the same choice as the

VW).

The VW Caddy comes with a choice

of four different engines: two petrol

and two diesel engines but different

horsepower. The petrol engine can

be delivered in 55 kW/75 HP and 75

kW/102 HP; the diesel engine in 51

kW/70 HP or 77 kW/105 HP.

Vehicles

Made to measure

It doesn’t matter what you are loading,

there’s enough space for everything.

The different models come in different

lengths, heights and widths. For example,

the Caddy sets standards in its class in

terms of cargo space and payload. It is

4.41 m long, 1.80 m wide and 1.83 m in

height and thus has a load capacity of up

to 750 kg – meeting all the requirements

made of a compact, light-weight delivery

van about town.

If you need more space, you can pack

up to 1200 kg in the T5, which is 4.89

m long, 1.91 m wide and 1.96 in height.

Need even more space? The T5 is also

available in 5.29 m length, and up to 2.46

m in height.

The Vito also provides a made-to-measure

solution and is available in three different

lengths (from 4.75 m to 5.22 m) to

suit all needs. The two different wheelbases

of 3.20 m and 3.40 m as well as two

heights cover more and more specific

needs compared with their predecessor.

And a cargo weight of up to 760 kg is not

to be sniffed at.

Size – you don’t need to make

room to have more space

petrol engine 6.4 l/100 km. Depending

on the engine, fuel consumption in the

Vito is between 8.4 l/100 km and 9.6

l/100 km. The T5 consumes between 8.0

l/100 km and 12.2 l/100 km.

Standard fittings – what else

have they got to offer?

Some fittings that are standard in the Vito

are only optional extras in the Caddy and

the T5. The ESP system, for example, is

standard in the Vito and comprises ABS,

ASR, electronic brake force distribution,

hydraulic brake assistance and four disk

brakes.

ABS is fitted as standard in the Caddy.

ESP is optionally available for the estate

model.

In the T5 air conditioning, front e-windows,

central locking with radio remote

control as well as sun-blinds and sliding

windows are fitted as standard.

Three very appealing models. Now the

choice is yours. Which model will suit

you will depend on your individual

requirements and needs. For further

details on the new transporters please

go to

www.vw-nutzfahrzeuge.com or

www.mercedes-benz.com

The T5 has a load area of between 5.8 m 3

and 9.3 m 3 . The Vito with its maximum

area of 6.49 m 3 is considerably smaller,

despite being available in a 2.90 m length.

The Caddy has cargo space of 2.3 m 3 or

3.2 m 3 . So it’s just a matter of shape and

space which you’ll want to choose.

Fuel consumption –

lower than others

The low-consumption Caddy is one step

ahead, because the diesel has an average

fuel consumption of 5.2 l/100 km, the

Postbank Leasing – your trusted partner

Nowadays, in order to stay

will definitely be able to offer you a

you’re after, we have both on offer.

Postbank Leasing, a 100% subsidiary

of Postbank, can offer you financing

Secure cargo - and you‘re on to a winner

Secure your cargo so that you and

your freight arrive safely. Again and

again accidents happen because of

instable cargo loads or cargo that is

inadequately secured. Weight pressure,

inertial force and friction all

have an effect on your cargo when

you drive around corners as well as

when driving off and braking. That is

how the cargo generates an uncontrollable

thrust and may turn into an

unpredictable projectile.

The backwards or sideways forces

can reach up to 50% of the cargo

weight; the force in the direction of

travel can even reach 80%. That is

why you should take precautions

and properly secure your cargo.

How can you secure your cargo?

The following minimum load capacity

applies pursuant to European

Standard DIN EN 12 642:

• Load capacity of firewall: 40% of

payload, max. 5 tonnes

• Load capacity of side wall: 30% of

payload

What aids are suitable for

securing cargo?

Cargo can be secured by means of tiedown

straps, chains and wire cables.

In addition, cargo can be secured

extremely effectively by using packing

materials to fix the cargo, to fill empty

spaces or stop it from slipping.

Who is responsible for ensuring

the cargo is secured

properly?

In principle the sender is responsible

for ensuring the cargo is secured

ready for shipment, i.e. for stacking,

stowing, strapping, wedging, bracing

or securing the cargo. Furthermore,

the haulage contractor must guarantee

the cargo is correctly secured and

must make a suitable vehicle available

for this. More specifically this means

that the haulage contractor must be

able, by adhering to the required

measurements, weights and axle

load, to transport the goods safely by

normal means as per contract (even

under extreme conditions).

What role do the driver and

the loader play?

In the event that it can be proved that

the cargo was not adequately secured

or in the event that this leads to an

accident, the driver will be the first

point of contact. The driver is obligated

to ensure the cargo is properly

secured pursuant to Section 22 and 23

14 Partner-Store News | II/2004


Security

of the German road traffic regulations.

Pursuant to court decisions the driver also has the

following obligations:

• The obligation to check that the cargo has been

secured and distributed correctly before commencing

the journey.

• The obligation to check whether the cargo is

secured during transportation, and if necessary

to make adjustments.

• The obligation to adapt his driver behaviour in

accordance with the cargo.

Even when another person loads the vehicle, the

driver is still obligated to ensure that the cargo is

loaded safely. He may, possibly, have to refuse to

transport the cargo.

Pursuant to Section 22 of the German road traffic

regulations the person loading the cargo is responsible

for ensuring it is stowed away correctly. He

is legally obligated to ensure the cargo is correctly

secured and may not assign this responsibility to

the driver. In ambiguous cases the loader’s superior

or even the management itself is liable.

7 ways to security

What should the registered keeper

bear in mind?

Pursuant to Sections 30 and 31 of the German

regulations authorising the use of vehicles for

road traffic, the registered keeper of a vehicle

is responsible for ensuring that the vehicle is in

good condition, that it is equipped as is required

by the regulations and for ensuring that equipment

required for securing the load is made available.

Properly securing your cargo is not difficult and

can be done swiftly, but should on no account be

underestimated. So you’ll always be safe on the

roads whatever your load.
