Already established in 1922 means Wallmann & Co. can count on the experience of
nearly nine decades and still today utilises this continuity and the strength of a permanently
owner-managed business. The start was made by the eponym Otto Wallmann and his two
companions Wilhelm Suhl and Albert Schmidt – at that time as Hamburg Port shipping and
forwarding agents in the city centre and a branch office opened at the same time in Berlin.
Besides the classical forwarding with trucks the business also included the import and export
of big parcels of sugar, cereals and foodstuffs.
The founding of the Motorschiff Gesellschaft in 1929 meant that the "Wallmen" were able to start successfully the inland water transportation business which operated until 1987.
The best tradition
A proud past makes us ready for the future
Since then we are focussed on the cargo warehousing and handling business built up since 1967 and are nowadays one of the leading companies in handling general cargo in the Port of Hamburg . On 1st January 2008 we continued our long-standing co-operation with the Rickmers-Linie, which took a partnership of 25,1% at Wallmann & Co. via "Rickmers 1. Terminal Beteiligungs GmbH".
