Quality management system

Our Pan-European digital quality management system is based on GDMP and ISO standards, ensuring comprehensive regulatory compliance. We adhere to an extended range of standards to guarantee the highest level of quality and reliability across all operations.


Our warehouse network provides comprehensive EU coverage, offering temperature-controlled environments for a range of conditions including ambient, cold, frozen (2-8°C, 15-25°C, -20°C, -40°C, -80°C, and -196°C). Our sustainable warehouse sites are BREEAM certified, ensuring environmental responsibility. We prioritize security and cater to multiple customers, with bonded and regulated agent setups as standard features.

Temperature Controlled Transport

Our dedicated healthcare fleet and highly qualified carriers ensure that your products are transported under the right conditions. The temperature is monitored 24/7 at our control tower, where we track the location of your cargo in real-time. The control tower interacts with the driver and the trailer systems to ensure the optimum temperature and security at all times. Our European intervention contract allows us to respond swiftly to incidents. To further optimize flows, we have bi-temp trailers for ambient, cold and frozen transport. We also have a GDP-certified, cross-dock network for pan-European distribution that we can draw on to consolidate LTL cargo. Regardless of your cargo type, our track & trace platform offers you full visibility on transport data.

Secured Transport

From warehousing to transport, security is paramount at H.Essers, as evidenced by our TAPA TSR certification. In addition to 24/7 cargo monitoring by the control tower, we also have security trailers with electronic and remote locking systems, a panic button and theft sensor. Additionally, all trailers can be instantly identified from above, which makes H.Essers a dependable and trustworthy partner from door to door.

Intermodal transport

H.Essers develops flexible, efficient and sustainable synchromodal transport solutions. Thanks to our own rail terminal, we provide GDP-compliant healthcare transport across a European rail network – including to and from destinations in Asia. Our hubs are connected synchromodally via barge, rail and road. We have also invested in our temperature controlled Coolbox, which was specifically developed for the healthcare sector and can be transported via road, rail, sea and inland waterway. The result: a door-to-door solution with 24/7 monitoring and guaranteed interventions in the event of an incident. With H.Essers, your goods are in great hands.
