The Ziegler Group has established itself in the Netherlands in 1981 after the acquisition of Steffes + Co N.V. The freight forwarding company with a good reputation that has operated in the Netherlands since 1968, has become Ziegler Nederland BV and continued its rapid development under the flag of the Ziegler family.


Ziegler Nederland BV represents the best qualities of a professional Freight Forwarder and Logistics Operator.

A part of the ‘New Silk Road’ – a railway which connects China with Rotterdam – was opened in 2015 and this route shortens the delivery time of goods to about 14 days by land.
