We have collaborated with Lauritzen as our freight forwarder for about 14 years and have always been very pleasant with them.
It is easy to book and in case of problems/delays we are notified.

Clear departures make it easy to see when to expect our goods will be delivered.

The staff are always friendly, happy and accommodating upon inquiries, which makes you in a good mood when talking to them.

We have tried other freight forwarders but has always returned to Lauritzen.

Always amazingly high service. You continuously bring good info about delivery times.
Furthermore, we always experience great flexibility with you.

For 25 years, if not more, Lauritzen have had all our transport to Italy and have always handled it exceptionally good.

As we are located in the same city, Lauritzen has always been good at paying us a visit, if something has been missing, which has also contributed to very good relationships among the companies.
If something goes wrong, against expectations, Lauritzen quickly report this. And in case we need goods in a hurry they also find a solution to this. All information is passed on. That means a lot to us.

In addition, Lauritzen transport what we have to Spain, Norway and Sweden.

To us, Lauritzen is not a supplier but a partner.
Niels Hagelskjær
- Garant Holstebro
Garant Holstebro has in about 15 years purchased tiles from Italy and Spain. In these 15 years we have more or less only used Lauritzen for transportation of our tiles.
For us at Garant Holstebro it is all about an end product of the highest quality which also means delivery of our products.
The cooperation that I have personally had with Lauritzen for many years now can only be described as excellent.
I send orders every week and all orders are handled professional. Each request is answered immediately and each case at the concerned factory is handled thoroughly so we always have our goods loaded in time, which means that we can comply with all our deliveries.
In case of accident, I receive an email or a call from the office immediately, so I can always give our customers a message about a possible change of delivery time.
I have to say that I rarely experience such a complete workflow as the staff perform at Lauritzen.
Incredible nice people to talk to and write with. I could mention some names, but I am sure they know who they are, and I am certain that all at Lauritzen performs equal.
Poul-Henning W. Nielsen
- Slagelse Flisecenter A/S
We always receive an excellent service from Lauritzen.
When there occasionally are accidents by train, which Lauritzen are not an influencer on, they are good at informing of possible obstacles. Mean while they are also good at remembering our orders and always asking if other orders is to be transported back home. We are very satisfied with the cooperation.

Samarbejdet i opstartsfasen er gået utrolig godt. Vi sætter stor pris på at det altid er de samme, der håndtere vores bookinger og de har styr på det. De holder os godt informeret.
Vi sætter endvidere pris på at det, så vidt muligt, er de samme chaufføre, der kommer ud til os igen og igen.
Sammenfattet ser vi at den service vi var vant til fra Lauritzen fra før, stadig er den samme. chaufførerne gør som de bliver bedt om / i overensstemmelse med vores HMS-krav, så vi er yderst tilfredse med opstarten.

Italpannelli Nordic ApS - Direktør
Vi har brugt Lauritzen i ca. 1,5 år nu, og aldrig har vi haft så godt et samarbejde med et fragtfirma, som vi har nu.

Lauritzen kan håndtere utrolig mange transporter på kort tid, nogle gange op til 26 full loads på en uge, endda omkring sommerferie tid. Det sætter vi stor pris på.

Lauritzen yder os en rigtig god service, med det rigtige opsæt af forskellige trailerstørrelser mv. samt pris.

Det bedste er, at vi har fast kontaktperson, som håndterer alle vores transporter. Det er en kæmpe fordel.

Vi kender hinanden og ved hvad der er vigtigt i samarbejdet. Derved undgår vi en masse mulige misforståelser, og det giver ro i maven at man ved, der er nogen der har styr på det, og man føler arbejder for os.
