Transalkim to operate under the umbrella of Quehenberger Logistics

Quehenberger Logistics acquires three German locations and the foreign subsidiaries of Transalkim forwarding with about 350 employees

Almost three months within the application for the opening of insolvency proceedings, a new perspective has materialised for Transalkim, a provider of transport and logistics services. The liquidator Dietmar Haffa of Schultze & Braun has sold the enterprise to Quehenberger Logistics (Salzburg) on April 30. Transalkim has applied for insolvency on February 6 at the district court Amtsgericht Ludwigsburg; the proceedings were opened on April 28.

The takeover saves 100 from 120 jobs in Germany. In addition, the sale ensures the 250 jobs at Transalkim’s foreign subsidiaries in Hungary, Romania and the Netherlands. Without their German mother company it would have been hard for these subsidiaries to sustain in the market on the long term.

“What has been important for the successful search for an investor was to quickly stabilise the operating business in order to be soon able to start negotiations with potentially interested parties. Also the customers and staff have remained loyal towards us“, reports Dietmar Haffa. He has been leading intensive negotiations with several interested parties last week, and finally reached an agreement with the Austrian Quehenberger Logistics.

Quehenberger takes over the Transalkim branches in Schwieberdingen, Dormagen and Hamburg. A separate continuation of the location in Hallbergmoos is currently investigated. The subsidiaries of Transalkim abroad in Romania, Hungary and Holland will also be integrated into the organisation of Quehenberger.

Quehenberger Logistics is an owner-managed, medium-sized provider of transport management, network and contract logistics services, with its headquarters in Straßwalchen near Salzburg. The geographic centre of the traditional company is in Middle and Eastern Europe. The company has currently 2,360 employees at 80 locations in 17 countries, generating turnover of EUR 425 million in the 2013 financial year. The key industries are Automotive, FMCG, Fashion and Retail.
