The Route to Space Alliance is Formed by European Hauliers

Five highly established hauliers from across Europe have joined together to offer a bespoke transport and logistics service specifically tailored to the aerospace, aerospace and research laboratory industries.

French company Chabrillac, UK based Collett Group, Switzerland’s Friderici Spécial and German companies Hermann Paule and WeiLa Transport have united to form the Route To Space Alliance with headquarters in Toulouse. This professional grouping offers the collective experience, knowledge and skills of all five members in providing a complete transport service for highly sensitive, unique and irreplaceable items.  All five hauliers are family firms recognized for their reliability, and possess years of experience in transporting high technology products and abnormal loads.

The Route To Space Alliance is represented across 13 sites in four countries and features 185.000m2 of depot space, 45.050m2 of warehousing, more than 500 employees and over 700 specialist vehicles, trailers and SPMTs (self-propelled modular transporter).

Speaking on the birth of the Alliance, President and Managing Director of Chabrillac, Jérôme Pasdeloup stated that their clients consider his company as a very reliable transport company with strong commitments and schedules, perfectly adapted to their needs and with local facilities. From offering this service to European clients across France, the firm identified an opportunity to offer these specialist services at a European level. 

He added that discussions first occurred with Chabrillac's German partners, then with a Swiss and an English partner, who are all highly experienced in the specialist logistics sector, and the Route To Space Alliance became a reality. By forming this Alliance, the companies have successfully brought together years of experience, skill, facilities and knowledge, allowing the group to offer a dedicated service for specialized cargoes across Europe.
