This refers to the shipping and receiving of commercial export and import goods via European ports.

Under the direction of our managing director, Hermi Dopmann, our team of specialists serves many German and European customers for all needs of import and export activities to and from all continents. From raw materials to deli products in reefer containers, we ship and receive a highly diverse range of products. This includes heavy lift and break bulk cargo that can only be transported by special ships.
In cooperation with domestic freight forwarding colleagues, we have developed the inbound and outbound

logistic chain for overseas and inland exhibitions / trade fairs.

This working group also has specific experience in handling vehicles in containers or as RO/RO (roll on roll off). If necessary, we can also assist in the conversion of these vehicles.

Our state-of-the-art computer system allows us access to numerous databases. Requests for transport and freight costs – even to remote locations – will be answered within very short notice.

Overseas freight

Planning a move from overseas to Europe can be a problem for the customer and depends on the infrastructure and the conditions of the particular country. Because the transport chain starts abroad in such cases, the experience of the particular freight forwarder and its network of agents abroad are highly important.          


Our removal import department, which is leaded by managing director Andreas Soller, is specialized in this particular business. In close cooperation with our network we organize all requested services from origin to destination, incl. customs clearance and delivery to the client's residence or movers warehouse.
