Hellmann expands European network

Hellmann Worldwide Logistics has launched a network in Eastern Europe that will cater for the Baltic States, Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.

Hellmann East Europe is based in Maintel-Bischofsheim near Frankfurt/Main, and has 40 staff working on the traffic lines recently established between partner organisations in Lithuania, Latvia, Russia and Belarus. Meanwhile, in Estonia and Ukraine, Hellmann East Europe has established its own offices.

Changes elsewhere in Europe include the creation of a team dedicated to road haulage distribution in Spain’s key cities, Barcelona, Madrid and Irun.

In addition, Hellmann Germany ended its joint venture with Quehenberger at the beginning of the year. Consequently, Hellmann has opened its own independent offices in Austria, Romania and Hungary. Again, this will lead to extra traffic lines and the increased use of Hellmann’s wide range of services.

Services in Ireland are being expanded to provide additional road haulage services throughout Europe. Hellmann will be working with partner ACE Express Freight, a freighting company already closely connected to Hellmann in sea and air freight.

Martin Meyer, managing director of Hellmann Worldwide Logistics UK said: “With Hellmann networks well established in Germany and the UK, our aim is to reproduce this throughout the rest of Europe. For this reason, we have created new networks, opened new offices and created closer partnerships.”
