With the new business location, the logistics specialist from southern Germany aims to
increase its market presence in Sweden. The logistic experts opened a branch office in
Helsingborg, Sweden, on April 21. This is the corporate group’s second location in
Scandinavia besides the Heinloth Sweden AB headquarters in Trelleborg, where traffic
between Sweden and Germany – and vice versa – has been handled since 2016. Oliver
Schwemmer, CEO of Heinloth Transport GmbH & Co. KG, explains: “Helsingborg is located on a strategically important route in the south of Sweden and, along with Malmö and
Trelleborg, is the gateway to Scandinavia. Many freight forwarding and transportation
companies are based in the area, and therefore the know-how is correspondingly high. For
this reason, we decided to set up our new branch office in Helsingborg in order to be even
more present and closer to our Swedish customers in the future and further optimise our
existing transport routes in Scandinavia.”

The new dispatch office will establish and serve an additional customer base to complement
current operations. The freight forwarding business, in particular, is expected to benefit
from this development. The other necessary conditions have been created recently by
putting the logistics centre in Rostock into operation. The Rostock logistics centre will serve
as a transhipment facility to optimise transport. In addition, it will be a cross-docking
platform for export and import goods. Initially, the Helsingborg branch office will start with
three employees and will be expanded to ten colleagues over the next two to three years.
