BUSINESS when responding to clients’ demands. The company also processes customs declarations, arranges for the storage of goods and related logistics. “Our business partners appreciate that we are reliable and keep to the terms of loading and delivery. We have an excellent background in perfect teams of dispatchers, drivers, storemen and salesmen, and mostly the fleets of reliable vehicles. We purchase only reliable, renowned makes. We maintain and service the fleet carefully, and usually replace the vehicles in threeyear periods,” Mr Miroslav Konečný, CEO, says, introducing the keys to success and the good name of the company. A new item in the service portfolio is the railway freight transport from China to the Czech Republic in containers or as parcel logistics. “This type of transport is considerably cheaper than air travel of goods, and much faster if compared to water transport,” Konečný adds, summarizing the positives of the new service.
Spare parts: the importance of being fast and helpful The company ADIP is the leader in the distribution of spare parts and accessories for trucks, utility vehicles and buses in the Czech market. Their thirteen distribution centres and delivery service are able to conclude the client’s order within twenty-four hours (and, in certain cases, twice a day), satisfying the demands of thousands customers all over the Czech Republic. Over a million catalogue items from over 300 renowned suppliers (and alternative products by MAX Parts) represent original (or nearly original) quality in good prices. “We provide our customers with good technical assistance and counselling. Our customers deal with frequent employee turnover in positions responsible for spare parts purchase, therefore they appreciate when we provide qualified
advice on which part to choose. Our new ordering system in development, to be introduced in 2019, will make our assistance even more efficient,” says Mr Robert Šulák, ADIP CEO.
Clean vehicles to best represent each company The structure and looks of the fleet represent each transporter no matter if they transport passengers or freight. The fuelling and car-wash chains operated by the company NIKEY complete the range of services provided by the group ČSAD Ostrava. Their refuelling stations supply customers with fuel of top quality at prices respecting purchased amounts, allowing direct debit through invoice cards and chips. Fleet managers may use customized services at competitive prices. Car wash centres guarantee the clean exterior of vehicles at favourable costs. The technologies applied are nicely priced and environment-friendly. In addition to the standard wash, they may include cleaning preparations based on nanotechnology for efficient dirt and dust reduction. NIKEY offers standard washing and cleaning programmes as well as the cleaning and disinfection of upholstered areas. Most aforementioned services can be found in one centre, in facilities operated by ČSAD Ostrava. Having these services concentrated in a hub helps customers save time, and combine discounts on the amount of purchased service. Another contractor, TESTCAR, complementing our offer with our network of vehicle inspection centres, joined the ČSAD Ostrava group in 2017. Our customers can also use ČSAD Ostrava car parks, storage and workshop facilities and offices. ČSAD Ostrava continues the traditions and history of the trademark ČSAD, developing and modernizing the service portfolio, and the 750 employees undoubtedly have a lot to offer.
