Business goes on 365 days a year.
The box of the exhaust system on Horst Tillack’s Antos 1843 is still warm when he begins his shift at eight o’clock in the morning. His night-shift colleague parked the truck at Achse GmbH in Frankfurt an der Oder an hour earlier. “It’s a non-stop business, seven days a week, 365 days a year.” Every day, the 60 year-old and the other drivers numbering around 80 transport a million litres of milk to the dairy from the region’s farms. 20 trucks are always on the road.
“Our customers rely on us collecting the milk on time,” says Annegret Ricklinkat, managing partner at Achse GmbH.
