Hegelmann Group crosses Atlantic
International transport and logistics company Hegelmann from Bruchsal, Germany, is reaching out over the Atlantic and launching operations in North America as Hegelmann USA. The headquarters in Chicago will come on stream at the beginning of January 2022.
The company intends to invest EUR 10 million in the growth of the American branch over the first three years. The plans include the acquisition of „dry van" trailers, thermo trailers, platforms, silos and trailers for carrying cars. The branch is scheduled to start with 15 employees and ten trucks, with the fleet to be extended with LNG or electricity powered trucks at a later date.
Andrew Jasinskas will lead the expansion strategy in the USA as head of business development of the Hegelmann group. In Europe, Hegelmann has a vehicle fleet of more than 4,000 assigned vehicles and employs more than 7,000 people in 26 branches across the continent. (sh)
