Paris inaugurates new office

On March 2nd, the new headquarters in Villepinte near Paris were inaugurated. Management board members Reiner Heiken (CEO) and Jens Wollesen (COO), celebrated with the 28 employees and French management team led by Alex Delrue, CEO France & Spain. Just ten minutes from Roissy Charles de Gaulle, the largest airport in Continental Europe, the colleagues from operations, sales and supporting functions work in a newly furnished office space of over 500 square meters.

No items found.

Much to the delight of branch manager Monika Khemmache : "We urgently needed the larger premises. Our move now gives us the opportunity to grow in terms of personnel as well.”

In September 2019, she opened the first French location in Villepinte. In 2021, Hellmann offices were opened in three more cities: Nantes, Rennes and most recently in Lyon. There are now already 47 employees working for Hellmann in France, and the number is growing steadily. Hellmann France operates in air, sea and road LTL-FTL for general cargo and defines vertical markets, including Automotive, Fashion and Healthcare sectors.

Since September 2021, they have proudly held the AEO (Authorized Economic Operator) certificate in their hands. The certificate, which is valid throughout the EU, is very important for companies trading internationally because it offers many advantages. For example, AEO-certified companies have fewer waiting times at customs inspections.

The ISO 9001 (Quality) and the Good Distribution Practices (GDP) certification are also within immediate reach. These certificates are elementary for dealing with pharmaceuticals. It proves that attention is paid to good distribution practices and quality in all services.

The Hellmann website ( will soon also be available in French. Now there is really nothing standing in the way of further growth in France.
