‘Zippel’ was founded on 1 April 1876 by August Zippel as a cross-border haulier with horse-drawn carts. Today, the owner-managed transport and logistics company Konrad Zippel Spediteur GmbH & Co. KG specialises in container traffic, both by rail and by road. With over 200 highly skilled staff, extensive business sector expertise and a motor pool of more than 60 vehicles, Zippel Group can cater to all types of customer requests, including for complex transport projects between major European commercial centres and German sea ports. Remarkably, Zippel has an excellent sustainability track record in economic, environmental and social terms. On 29 April 2019, the Westhafen harbour in Berlin provided the backdrop for commissioning three new Scania R410 with compressed natural gas propulsion (CNG), an occasion that was attended by Federal Minister of Transport and Digital Infrastructure Andreas Scheuer. As a result, the fleet of gas-propelled trucks is now seven environmentally friendly vehicles strong. With that day, Zippel Group also became the official 45th Safety Partner of the ‘Aktion Abbiegeassistent’ (Campaign Turning Assistant). Find out more about Zippel here: www.zippel24.com.
