Today Carl Hartmann GmbH & Co. KG is part of a small group of overseas forwarders with high standards of professionalism and individual customer care. Many of the company’s highly skilled and motivated employees began their careers as apprentices here, ensuring a high standard of personalized service. Johann Mindermann, Hermi Dopmann and Andreas Soller are the company’s chief executives. As shareholding executives, they represent the fifth generation of owners.
