By opening a joint sales office in the Hanseatic city, we at the Haeger & Schmidt Group and our parent company Felbermayr are further improving the offer and the support for overseas forwarders and carriers. For us, this can be seen as a comeback because it was exactly 100 years ago, in 1920, that we opened our initial branch in Hamburg.
From the new office, we offer a diverse portfolio in the field of maritime and hinterland logistics, focusing on multimodal transport solutions by inland waterway, rail and truck from and to the seaports of Rotterdam and Antwerp. The opening of the new joint office in Hamburg allows us to offer the advantages of a one-stop logistic solution to the customers in Northern Germany directly on site.
The Haeger & Schmidt Group offers a comprehensive logistics portfolio through the companies Haeger & Schmidt Logistics, HSW Logistics (both registered in Duisburg), Haeger & Schmidt Logistics Belgium NV (Antwerp), ETK Euro Terminal Kehl and Best Logistics Sp.z o.o (Stettin). The group counts approximately 200 employees and is since 2013 part of the Austrian family business Felbermayr.
The transport and lifting technology company Felbermayr Holding GmbH traditionally secures demanding road and heavy transport. They are also actively involved in mobile crane and working platform rental, heavy lift handling as well as civil engineering and building construction activities. The group, headquartered in Wels/Austria, is represented in 18 European countries with 78 locations. The Felbermayr Group currently counts 2,700 employees.
The new joint office location creates valuable synergies for transports to the south, in order to counterbalance Felbermayr’s strong export orientation from Austria.
