In the decades that followed the Battle of Sedan which was fought during the Franco-Prussian War in 1870, the world was very different than it is today, and many things were changing. Railways had just first appeared, electronic lighting did not exist and transportation, as we know it today, had not entered people’s imagination.
After completing his business studies and military service, Arthur Joseph Ziegler was gaining experience in the transportation industry. A visionary from the start, he never stopped dreaming of seemingly impossible developments that he imagined could be achieved in this industry. These dreams brought him to Brussels where, on 15 March 1908, he founded the Ziegler Company.
If Joseph Arthur could see how Ziegler Group looks today, he would surely be both amazed and delighted.
More than 112 years of constant development and pushing forward has made the Ziegler Group today a worldwide freight and logistics service provider offering the whole spectrum of services – packaging of goods, road, rail, sea, air and inland waterway transport, logistics, customs clearance, e-commerce, and other value-added services.
Today, we employ more than 3,200 employees worldwide and operate a close-knit global network with 154 branches in more than 15 countries.
Nevertheless, we remain a family business, based on strong family roots, whose most valuable resources are our people and the close relationships we make.
Strong internal relations and close cooperation with our partners, added to the completeness of our offer allows us to stay flexible and offer tailor-made services. This differentiates us from other large global transport groups and allows us to provide customized solutions instead of inflexible off-the-shelf solutions.
We focus on quality, not quantity, to help you achieve your goals.
We listen and understand because we want to exceed your expectations.
We care because we honor our core values:
