Josef Heuel GmbH, Meinerzhagen, has been a new partner of the general cargo association Online Systemlogistik (OSL) since 1 September 2021. OSL thus has a high-performance logistics service provider at its side that can reliably handle the increasing volume of consignments in the conurbation east of Cologne. The system partner Kost, Attendorn, who was previously responsible for the area, is leaving at the end of the year.
“As a renowned, owner-managed logistics company, Heuel Logistics is a very good fit for us, and we also have the same high quality standards,” explains Petra Welling, Managing Director of Online Systemlogistik GmbH & Co. KG. The membership of Heuel Logistics is the first step for a new distribution in the postcode areas 51, 57, 58 (Bergisches Land / Sauerland). Currently, four lorries per night leave from there in the direction of the OSL HUBs, feed consignments into the network and take loads back for distribution: Heuel Logistics drives to the central HUBs I and II in Schlitz near Fulda as well as the northern HUB in Porta Westfalica with one lorry each; one lorry is provided by the forwarding company Kost. Another partner is to be added to the region before the end of the year.

By becoming a member of Online Systemlogistik, Heuel Logistics strengthens its transport handling throughout Europe. The international services of the family-owned company, founded in 1926, include not only general cargo but also long goods, thermal and hazardous goods.
