50 Jahre Dörrenhaus – von Velbert in die Welt.
Wir kümmern uns von A bis Z um all Ihre Logistikanforderungen.
In 2021, Spedition Dörrenhaus celebrates its 50th anniversary. The company was founded in 1971 by Gerd Dörrenhaus as an international trucking company. In the early years, part and full load charters were organised in Europe. The main markets at that time were Italy, France and the Benelux countries. The first permanent employees soon followed and the company also moved into its first small warehouse. At the end of the seventies, the company moved to the Siemensstraße at the location of today's headquarters. The first hall section and the first trucks for local transport were purchased. The second warehouse section was opened in 1990. At this time, Spedition Dörrenhaus had 2,700 square metres of storage space and the core business continued to be Europe-wide truck transport. In 1999, Lars Dörrenhaus took over the company. By this time, the business had already developed in the direction of sea freight and air freight. The main markets were initially imports from China and later from all over Asia. With the boom in these trade lanes, logistical requirements and complete solutions for entire supply chains were added very quickly. Our company has grown every year and we have been able to offer our customers more and more services. In 2016, the employees of the overseas department moved into a new office on Industriestrasse, opposite the Dörrenhaus forwarding company headquarters, to accommodate this growth.
In order to strengthen our expertise in air freight and further expand this area, we took over our long-standing partners UTK and CES at Cologne Airport in 2018, where the entire air freight business is now handled in the immediate vicinity of Cologne-Bonn Airport.
In January 2021, the company moved into another warehouse with attached office space on Haberstraße, close to the head office.
In autumn 2021, Dörrenhaus, together with its partner Neelevat, opened its first own locations in Hong Kong and China under the name NVD ASIA. In the meantime, in addition to 8 offices in China and Hong Kong, further offices have been opened in Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam. In total, almost 200 employees work for the group in Asia.
Since 1 February 2023, the Dörrenhaus forwarding company has also been represented in Hamburg with its own office and warehouse space. For this purpose, Dörrenhaus GmbH will take over all activities and all 17 employees of its long-standing partner TBN Logistik & Trade GmbH in Hamburg. There are now 17 new employees working for the Dörrenhaus Group in Hamburg.
In total, Dörrenhaus now has 5 locations in Germany and a storage area of 12,000 square metres.
