Company foundation, based in Mannheim, Germany

Successful implementation of an intermodal logistics concept for the green coffee supply chain. Former bagged goods delivery to the roasting plant by truck changed to intermodal delivery by bulk. The 30ft letter bulk boxes that are specially ordered for this logistic concept can economically be returned with outbound pallet goods.

Development of European South/South-East axis under the name of “Silk Road Intermodal” and implementation of appropriate silo bulk concepts together with Turkey – Southbound for the petrochemical industry and northbound for the automotive sector.

Expansion of container fleet by new construction of 30×30 ft letter bulk boxes.

First DIN EN ISO 9001:2000 certification for all logistic activities by Bureau Veritas. The bulk sector as well as the general cargo division are certified for rail, road and sea activities.

Enforced development of road silo sector and recruiting of capable subcontractors for transport to Southern and Eastern Europe. The existing intermodal transports for Southern and Eastern Europe are supplemented this way and geographically condensed.

First attestation by Bureau Veritas according to SQAS guidelines of Association of European Chemical Industry CEFIC.

Expansion of container fleet by 30ft aluminum silo boxes and 40ft aluminum pressure tanks.

Expansion of services sector by refill and warehouse activities for bulk cargo in big bags. Development of refilling facility near Frankfurt/Main for packing of granulated goods of hazard class 8.

Expansion of equipment service activities in the food industry. The historically grown coffee logistics sector is enhanced by the products sugar and rice through renowned customers.

Relocation of refilling activities from Frankfurt/Main to the infrastructurally better location of Duisburg. After taking over complete logistical supply chains, Duisburg stands out as the better location in conjunction with overseas activities.

The road haulage sector comprises approximately 30 qualified partners with a total of 130 silo trucks.

Requests and partnerships with the food industry increase. Former road haulage activities through reputable shippers as well as receivers are restructured in various ways based on intermodal concepts. These concepts not only cover changed transport routings as such, but also high quality execution and assurance according to HACCP conditions.

Expansion of deep sea activities in bulk sector as well as in general cargo by taking over various supply chains.

As food logistics activities demand considerable attention from organizational as well as technical handling, IFS food certification takes place.
