United by trust, goals and sustainability

Salamander Industrie-Produkte GmbH is one of the leading European system providers for high-energy-saving window and door systems made of plastic and has its headquarters in Türkheim/Unterallgäu. The almost 100-year-old traditional company promises not only high-performance system and application technology, but also first-class customer service, high product quality and the delivery of the profiles on the desired date. For this purpose, SIP has a sophisticated logistics concept in which Alpensped GmbH is involved, among others.


The logistics company based in Mannheim, which specializes in Southern and South-East Europe, has been ensuring the smooth transport of high-quality window profiles from Türkheim or Papenburg to currently 5 European countries for 11 years. Several tilt trailers with interior heights of up to 3 metres (mega trailers) are currently transporting long material from 6 to 7 metres to the various receiving countries every day. In doing so, the medium-sized family company proves its flexibility every day. Close coordination between Salamander and Alpensped as well as direct contact between the recipients and Alpensped contribute to a high level of process optimization.

“The language competence that Alpensped has at its disposal, the uncomplicated processes, the punctuality of deliveries and the trust for many years,” enumerates shipping manager Birgitt Menhofer as the most important factors in the long-term cooperation. This is why the manufacturer entrusted its transport service provider with more than 650 partial and full loads in 2015. “In addition to the operational performance and the price, soft factors also play a major role in the choice of the transport partner,” explains Florian Sutter, team leader of purchasing at SIP, and mentions the topic of sustainability which connects Salamander and Alpensped.

While SIP is intensively committed to environmental protection and ensures that its products are 100% recyclable, Alpensped was also recognized by the state of Baden-Württemberg for its social and environmentally friendly behavior.
