PM Transport SA established in Attica, Greece in 1995 and for almost 25 years is providing Road transport solutions of the highest quality and security standards. In partnership with major forwarding companies in Greece and abroad, turned out to be one of the leading International overland carriers. To support its growth and meet customers’ increasing requirements, APM Group established two more affiliate companies in Germany. APM operates a modern, latest technology, privately owned fleet and is providing reliable road freight transport to European markets. Talking to the owner and Managing Director Mr. Michalis Papas, it is evident that we deal with a dynamic company that “listens” to the market changes and adopts itself to the growing requirements of its customers in Greece and abroad. The Strategic Choice As Mr. Papas explained “Back in 2005, we took the strategic decision to focus on the international transport of Temperature Controlled Life Science and High Value (HVTT) sectors. As it is characteristically stated “14 years later, this strategic choice was fully justified. Today we are proud to be considered as one of the leading road freight carriers for the certified transport of Pharma, High Value and Perishable sectors”. One of the largest investments we have realized is the complete renewal and upgrade of our fleet, which today accounts more than 70 trucks, of Euro5 & Euro6 standards. APM’s fleet, is continuously growing and renewed, with equipment (tractors and trailers) of the latest specifications, so as to fully cover the ever-increasing growing demands of our customers. The average age of our fleet is well below 5 years. We also invest in the continuous training and specialization of our staff, the installation of modern Telematics systems and of course the application and use of the most modern security systems. As Mr. Papas puts it “APM Transport SA is operating a modern, -state-of-the-art- privately owned fleet which combined with the established know-how, expertise and dedication of our team and the use of latest Information Technology systems, is allowing us to provide leading edge transport solutions at optimum cost
