Hegelmann Group, or just Hegelmann, is a German multinational logistics service provider based in Bruchsal, Germany with specialization in flexibility and express transport services. The company boasted an impressive growth of 900% from 2010 to 2017.[1], which makes it one of Europes fastest growing logistics companies. This accomplishment and the continious growth was and is achieved by constantly increasing the size of their fleet (MAN[2], Mercedes-Benz[3], DAF[4]), their span of services and by opening of new offices[5] and warehouses[6] in Europe.


In 1990 the Russian-German Hegelmann family moved from Kazakhstan to Germany. Before emigrating, Georg Hegelmann, one of the founders, had already worked as a driver during the Soviet era. In his early German years he was a driver as well, until his employment company at that time got relocated and he lost his job. At that moment he decided to start his own logistics company together with his brothers.[7] In 2004, after early smaller business expansions in Portugal and Poland, Hegelmann opened their first office in Lithuania. With a new establishment in Poland in 2011 and the introduction of the new CEOs Siegfried and Anton in 2010[8], Hegelmann started to develope into a rising competitor in the European transport market. In 2019 Hegelmann operates in 26 established offices across Europe.


Hegelmann Group handles European logistics operations mainly on land. Their time-sensitive non-stop express transportations[9] with two drivers in one truck made them renowned in the European transport sector.
