Our principles.

Commitment and Responsibility.
We are a medium sized, world-wide logistics company based in Paderborn and Ibbenbüren and are already in the sixth generation of family ownership. About 400 employees work every day in the business sectors as well as worldwide freight forwarding and logistics Air & Sea and removals.

We stand for fairness, security, high quality and reliability
We work together on an equal footing with our clients and partners, establishing a relationship based on mutual trust and honesty. Just like the majority of our clients, we are a medium-sized enterprise. But even for large customers, we are supported by our network of partners - with the advantages of a medium-sized company.

“We take care of you”
We live this motto. It is our mission to always be there for you and to provide comprehensive solutions for you. Many customers value the personal and direct channels of communication as we provide optimum support for their core business.

Take a look at our mission statement.


The main headquarters building is located on Halberstädter Strasse in Paderborn with an adjoining 25,900 sqft of storage space; in 2008 we established our Terminal 2 building just 546 yards down the road. Here, we have both a modern office building and a transhipment area over 7,500 sqft in size with 85 terminals for our European inland transportation operations.


After eight months of construction, our team in Ibbenbüren moved into the new site in the Schierloh industrial estate in autumn 2014. The key advantage of this site is its convenient location with direct access to the A30 autobahn and its close proximity to the seaports in Rotterdam, Bremerhaven and Hamburg. Here we have access to 19,375 sqft of operating space equipped with an innovative LED lighting system, which is used by around 50 employees in the Forwarding and Logistics divisions.

Other locations
We also perform numerous other services for our clients at other logistics centres. As part of our contact logistics work, we also manage a 14,000m² logistics warehouse.

Social commitment
We are firmly rooted in the town and region around Paderborn and also have close ties to the town and region around Ibbenbüren and we therefore feel it is our responsibility to make a contribution to the local community. We are heavily involved in the fields of culture, social issues and sport. For generations, the Hartmann family has provided plenty of secure jobs in the East Westphalia region and the company is strategically geared towards the generations to come.
