The obviousness that isn’t a given
The formula for reaching our vision
In 1992 InterEast was founded to bring back trust and quality to an industry suffering from unreliability. InterEast was and still is a family-owned business that offers sustainable and high-quality transport solutions. With a clear vision, strategy, and a razor-sharp focus on development, we plan to continue to grow and evolve with our clients.
At InterEast each and every gram weighs the same. Now you might think that sounds obvious, but it translates to the fundament of how we behave. To be frank: in our industry excellent service is unfortunately not a given. That is why we do our very best to make sure that you as a client feel safe knowing that we will keep you in the loop concerning your shipments. And that you never have to wait for us to pick up the phone or answer your email. Service is what we offer. It is our edge and our very core. We have an average answering time of 14 seconds during office hours. Put us to the test here >>
