Since the start of this month, the Bavarian family-run freight forwarding company, Erich Haslbeck, has become part of Duvenbeck. Founded in 1971 and headquartered in Niederviehbach near Dingolfing, Haslbeck’s focus is on providing factory logistics for the Bavarian automobile industry and cargo services for Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) and the construction industry. It operates full and less than truck loads across Bavaria and the rest of Germany. The company’s assets include 75 tractor units and 140 trailers, 1,000 m² of covered warehouse space and 2,000 m² of outdoor space. “Parts of the logistics building will probably be made available for other haulage companies to rent space there,” the press release reveals. Haslbeck’s 90 employees will be taken on by Duvenbeck, and its two managing partners, Bernhard and Christian Haslbeck, will continue to serve and accompany the integration process to the Duvenbeck Group.

The acquisition is part of Duvenbeck’s strategy to expand its presence in southern Germany, as well as diversify its product offering. It is the second such acquisition this year. In FEB24, Duvenbeck took over the Dutch transport and logistics company, Schotpoort Logistics, in line with its planned growth in the Benelux region. Duvenbeck’s CEO, Hakan Bicil, explained: “The scope of the company’s services and its excellent location between Landshut and Dingolfing, ideally complement our business activities in the fields of transport and contract logistics. We’re combining two advantages through the takeover: we‘re not only moving closer to the Bavarian automobile industry, but Haslbeck also offers us access to new industrial sectors and we can now offer them full logistical services, including warehouse and contract logistics, in southern Germany.”
