A forward-looking family business
As a family-owned business, independence is certainly one of Heppner’s special features and the main factor for success of this company, which has nurtured its independence since 1925. In a finance-driven world, it is only independent companies that have the good fortune to be able to develop a long-term vision and choose a stable and sustainable business strategy. Over the decades, successive executives have built a strong and healthy company that stands among the market leaders.
A deeply rooted international culture
International business is part of Heppner’s DNA, a specialist from the outset in the management of French-German flows. In addition to its 9 branches in Germany, including the newly purchased Hamacher Logistik Company, Heppner relies on both exclusive global partnerships and its own branch offices, to provide the best level of service in terms of deadlines, quality and information management. In 2017, Heppner became a shareholder of the Spanish company Eurobeta Internacional and established itself in the Dutch market by taking over HaCas Transport. Since 1990, it has been a partner of the Austrian Gebrüder Weiss company (with 150 branches in 30 countries), Heppner strengthened this partnership in 2019 with its Overseas activities.
