At the beginning of September 2019, Hellmann opened its first own air and sea freight branch in France. With this forward-looking investment, Hellmann closed a gap in its European network after the termination of the cooperation with Heppner for air and sea freight.
The first Hellmann branch in France is located in Villepinte, not far from Charles de Gaulle Airport, Paris. From here, the French network is being expanded in order to continuously strengthen our market position. Thus, in January 2021, a second branch has been opened in Nantes.
Our focus is on existing multinational customers who are already working with us in other parts of the world and who have indicated a need for a location in France. In addition, we intend to increasingly win local, medium-sized customers as well.
