Heppner Air & Sea division partnering with Gebrüder Weiss
Heppner wants to step up its air and sea freight business activities. To fulfil this goal the French service provider has established a strategic partnership with the air & sea division of Gebrüder Weiss (GW). Therefore Heppner has dropped its 20 year partnership with Hellmann Worldwide Logistics.
Gebrüder Weiss and Heppner have already been working together in the land transport field since 1985. The new partnership, which will be fully implemented by the end of this yeae, enables Heppner to augment its air and sea transport activities through additional foreign locations, especially in Western Europe and Africa.
Heppner has 11 locations in France, and each year its Air & Sea division organizes the shipping of more than 25,000 containers by sea and 15,000 tons via air freight. Gebrüder Weiss has 150 offices in 30 countries and a total of 7,000 employees. Its Air & Sea division ships more than 115,000 containers by sea and 58,000 tons of air freight each year.
