Throughout its more than 137-year history, Hellmann has distinguished itself with many attributes but only two differing traits; an unwavering focus on customer satisfaction and an eagerness to embrace innovation and change. Since our humble beginnings, our goal has been – and always will be – to grow alongside our customers. 1871 Carl Heinrich Hellmann founds the company as a one-man business delivering goods by a horse-drawn cart. 1925 Hellmann becomes one of the first companies to successfully replace their horse-drawn fleet with

coal-powered trucks in Germany.

1935 An innovation in efficient transport management: Hellmann launches a large scale (LTL)

consolidated freight terminal with 60 employees.

1968 After more than 20 years of post-war growth and expansion across Europe, the company’s shares are

transferred to the fourth generation, Jost and Klaus Hellmann.

1976 Hellmann becomes a founding member of the DPD parcel system service. 1982 Hellmann opens their first Asian office in Hong Kong, followed soon after by offices in the People’s

Republic of China, Taiwan, Singapore, South Korea, and more recently Vietnam, Sri Lanka and Japan.

1987 Operations begin in Sydney, Australia, followed one year later by office openings in New Zealand. 1988 Operations begin in Long Beach, California, and expansion ensues with offices in 18 U.S. cities, 6 Canadian

cities, and additional Hellmann offices across Mexico and South America.

1992 The Hellmann partner network expands into Eastern Europe. 1996 Hellmann celebrates 125 years of customer enthusiasm and has developed a global network of

341 offices in 134 countries.

2002 Global gross revenue exceeds 2 billion euros as Hellmann’s services become progressively more

industry-specific with products from the Perishable, Automotive, Fashion, Consumer Electronics,

Process Management, Contract Logistics & Consulting divisions.

2004 Construction is completed on the new Shanghai air freight warehouse. The company’s operations now

include 7 A-Class licenses and 23 offices in the People’s Republic of China.

2006 Hellmann receives the coveted “Award of Excellence” from the Global Institute of Logistics. 2007 Hellmann opens offices in India and Pakistan. In August, the European Logistic Center (ELC) in Munich is put

into operation and begins the distribution of spare parts for MAN vehicles. The second ELC based in Paris

begins operations in December.
