Gebrüder Weiss takes over German forwarding agency

With the takeover of the German forwarding company B+A Luft- und Seefrachtspedition GmbH, Gebrüder Weiss wants to expand its network in the country.

The new wholly-owned company, specializing in the import and export of groupage containers between Asia and Germany, was added to the Gebrüder Weiss network on June 27, 2023.

B+A, a forwarding company based in Nuremberg, was founded in 1982 and specializes in international air and sea freight services, offering project transport and weekly container transfers by sea from Asia. The groupage containers (LCL) are shipped from logistics centers in China and Taiwan to Hamburg, from where they are transported by rail to Nuremberg, where they are delivered to regional companies.

The company’s 20 employees will remain and the company will continue to trade under the name “B+A Luft- und Seefrachtspedition GmbH”.

“Nuremberg is one of the top logistics locations in Germany and our German Air & Sea network will receive a special boost from the acquisition. “B+A’s many years of expertise in the air and sea freight business is a perfect addition to the existing Gebrüder Weiss branch in Nuremberg, which has so far focused on land transport and logistics,” says Robert Stahlschmidt, Country Manager Air & Sea Germany at Gebrüder Weiss.
