Gebrüder Weiss acquires German freight forwarder

June 28, 2023


By acquiring German freight forwarder B+A Luft- und Seefrachtspedition GmbH, Gebrüder Weiss aims to extend its network in the country.

The new completely owned company, specialising in the import and export of groupage freight containers between Asia and Germany, was added to the Gebrüder Weiss network on 27 June 2023.

B+A, a freight forwarder based in Nuremberg, was formed in 1982 and specialises in international air and marine freight services, providing project transportation as well as weekly container transfers by sea from Asia. The groupage freight containers (LCL) are shipped from logistics centres in China and Taiwan to Hamburg, where they are subsequently transported by rail to Nuremberg before being delivered to regional companies.

The company’s 20 employees will hold their jobs and the firm will continue to operate under the name “B+A Luft- und Seefrachtspedition GmbH”.

“Nuremberg is one of the top logistics locations in Germany and our German Air & Sea network will be given a particular boost by the acquisition. B+A’s many years of expertise in the air and sea freight business are a perfect addition to the existing Gebrüder Weiss branch in Nuremberg, which has so far been focused on land transport and logistics,” stated Robert Stahlschmidt, country manager of Air & Sea Germany at Gebrüder Weiss.
