Spedition Schumacher seit 1931

The forwarding company Josef Schumacher, Tiefkühl-Frischdienst-Logistic e.K. was founded in 1931 in Aachen by Josef Schumacher as a transport company. The transport business initially consisted of simple transports in the Aachen region. Soon, however, the first, more complex services were added.

Today the company is a well-positioned, medium-sized logistics service provider for frozen food and fresh products as well as confectionery logistics, which, in addition to traditional logistical areas such as national and Europe-wide transport, handling and storage, is particularly known for its expertise in the field of fresh food logistics.

In the field of confectionery logistics, the company has distinguished itself in particular through the development and operation of individual, tailor-made solutions for complex logistical requirements, such as warehouse management or co-packing. With around 280 employees, around 300 refrigerated trucks and around 120,000 m² of managed logistics space, the Schumacher freight forwarder is one of the leading providers not only in the region around Aachen.
