We assess the entire supply chain and are able to draw on our expertise as a large-scale logistics provider if necessary. Our extensive network aids us in this.
Planzer launches apprentice website
As a family-owned company, we place a high value on promoting the next generation of professionals. We are currently training more than 300 apprentices across our Group.

In addition to job profiles and apprenticeship listings, the site includes a job finder, facts about our company and tips on applying.

Increase in traffic congestion hours on Swiss roads
Traffic congestion is an extensive problem affecting the entire road network. In 2017, there was a total of 25,853 hours of traffic congestion. This figure is up 7.4% compared to the previous year. The Swiss Road Transport Association ASTAG (Schweizerischer Nutzfahrzeugverband ASTAG) finds these record highs extremely disappointing, but not very surprising. Therefore, ASTAG is demanding that urgent measures be taken.
