Logistics Needs Our Support
The logistics company SANDER SUPPORT LOGISTIC s.r.o. has been operating on the Czech
market since 2009, providing transport packaging and handling. Employees put their hearts
and top professionalism in their jobs, so it came with no surprise when, in 2020, the company
was nominated for the Český Goodwill-Firmový Oscar (Czech Goodwill Business Oscar
awards). Ing. Jan Valerián, CEO of the company, gave us this interesting interview.
Mr Valerián, what prompted you to

I have been working in trade and logistics
since my third year at university. I worked
in various positions in a few logistics
companies before I founded SANDER
SUPPORT LOGISTIC. I wanted to
continue working in this field but to go
my own way.
We incorporated “support to logistics” in
the name of our company. We prepare the
goods to be safely transported, provide
transport packaging, load the containers
on any other transportation vehicle. Our
success is proven by our good position
on the market even in times of crisis. I am
glad that I may consider our employees

The motto of this issue is investments:
what types of investments do you work
with in your enterprise?
There are inevitable investments such as
regular renewals of hand-operated tools,
pneumatic nail guns and manipulation
technologies. Then there are “feel-good
These include the purchase of a superheavy fork-lift vehicle which allows us to
improve the portfolio of our services in
heavy-cargo manipulation, but it is also

Another chapter is the investment in the
staff. There is still a great deal of work
ahead for me to learn how to invest
properly. I am not sure that the invested
money and trust always pay back as much
as I hope.
What are the principal reasons that
clients should consider Sander
Support Logistic their prospective
In my opinion, the crucial reason is that
we are a reliable partner to our clients and
contractors. We work hard, always keep
contracted conditions and never cheat.
We search for solutions that primarily
benefit our customers. Thanks to the fact
that we are well versed in various kinds of
transport and the conditions of transport
and business, we are able to optimize the
processing and packaging of complex
What is the most interesting project
you have been involved in?
One of the most attractive projects we
have done was the transport of press
machines from Sárvár, Hungary to Kaluga,
Russia. Not only were we responsible
for transportation packaging, but also for
the full organization of the transport to the
destination. The largest items, weighing
thirty, forty and fifty tons, travelled
through Mělník, Kiel and Petersburg.
All accessories were transported by six
trucks to Kaluga directly. In accordance
with the order of the Russian client, all
items arrived in Kaluga on the very same
What is the key feature of your work?
Is it being organized?
It is the other way around. I feel that the
motto of our work is improvisation with
dates and flexibility. In the field of export
packaging, we are almost at the end
of the production process. We are the
last step before expediting the product.
Customers often try to resolve transport
packaging at the last minute. Any delay
in production causes changes in shipping
and transport and then we need to adapt
Which locations would you recommend
in the Frýdek-Místek area and which
local meal do you like best?
A bike ride in the Beskid Mountains
is heaven for my soul and hell for my
body. The bikeway connecting the peaks
of Ropice and Velký Polom offers the
most challenging parts and loveliest
views. When I choose to leave the
official marked tourist routes, the ride
may also become a great adventure. My
favourite local dishes include Wallachian
sauerkraut soup, pâtés, and deer goulash.
Thank you for the interview.
