Transporting around the world.

Logistics is our calling

Hegmann Transit stands for high-performance and professional transport operations of all kinds. Our promise: optimal service from one source! We guide logistics projects with experience and passion.

Founded in 1920, Hegmann Transit has continually developed and experienced healthy growth over the decades. Today, the company is run by the Tietz family, now in its fourth generation. With over 100 employees, even large, international projects can be successfully realised. Our main areas are heavy loads and holistic realisation in project logistics.

Hegmann Transit thinks ahead to ensure it can continue providing the level of service to which its customers have become accustomed. Be it through further training for our staff, investments in modern technologies or carefully considered generational change – innovation is our lifeblood.

 

Quality

To us, quality is not optional – it is essential

Quality can be hard to measure. But Hegmann Transit does not consider this a reason to shy away from the challenge. We regularly undergo certification processes, continue educating our staff, perform training and rely on the latest technical standards. This means the level of services you receive meets comparable international quality standards and you can maintain your competitive edge on an global scale.
