Experience the future of transport solutions with Hegelmann Hub Poland – where service excellence meets comfort.
25 years ago, three brothers decided to set up a transport company, starting their business with two used tractor units. Today, Hegelmann Group is one of the most dynamically developing transport groups in Europe. Hegelmann Poland companies have been operating in Poland for 13 years.
Due to its location, our country has always played an important role in international trade and transport. It is no different in the context of the importance of Polish companies for the development of the entire Hegelmann Group. The scale of operations is evidenced by the fact that in Poland, over 1,000 office and service employees are employed to service the operations of the companies to deliver clients’ loads using their own 2100 trucks and over 1,500 semi-trailers.
Such a large team is needed to meet the requirements of our clients from various industries: automotive, food, chemical, FMCG, industrial production and factories, e-commerce, trade, electronics and pharmacy. These are only examples of the largest business groups with which Hegelmann cooperates throughout the European Union.
“- Each past year has presented us with difficult challenges. 2023 promises to be no different. However, I believe that thanks to our great team, business environment, our partners and business strategy, we are able to meet them. This year our group celebrates 25 years of existence, which coincides with the opening of one of our key investments in Poland – Hegelmann Hub in Żarska Wieś. I am glad that such a great jubilee will be marked in history by the opening of our modern transport base” – says Fedir Yurkevych, president of Hegelmann Poland.
An extensive base is being built in Żarska Wieś near Zgorzelec, which will provide services of a high standard, ensuring safe driving and comfortable rest for drivers. The Hegelmann Hub complex consists of office space, a hotel offering accommodation adapted to the needs of drivers, a workshop and vehicle diagnostic station, a paint shop, a car wash adapted to the dimensions of trucks and a warehouse for spare parts and tires.
Although finishing works are still underway in part of the facility, the company belonging to the group, HT Trucks & Parts, operating in this area, has opened its doors to Hegelmann trucks and other companies, not only cooperating with the company on a daily basis. All types of vehicles are serviced here, from passenger cars, through delivery vans to full service of trucks.
An equally important aspect as business growth is its quality expressed in activities related to sustainable development. Hegelmann Poland has 160 trucks powered by LNG and CNG in its fleet. Intermodal services are also being developed that reduce the carbon footprint, but at the same time are an interesting alternative for customers. In the case of taking care of the environment, it is also important that the Hegelmann Poland fleet operates tractors with an average age of 2-3 years, which is not without significance in the context of striving to reduce environmental pollution.
The multinational heavy asset carrier Hegelmann is working with Emitwise, the carbon accounting platform, to increase the accuracy of their emission data to enable carbon reduction.
Founded in 1998, the Hegelmann Group have offered a wide range of transport and logistics services for nearly 25 years, serving customers from practically every industry,engineering and manufacturing, pharma and healthcare, consumer and fresh food ,electronics and high value.
The sector, responsible for around 11% of global emissions, has increasingly been under pressure to reduce its carbon footprint.
In response, Hegelmann launched its Mission Green programme in 2021 to become carbon neutral by 2045. So far, its focus has been switching to renewable energy and transitioning its large fleet to greener options.
Andreas Schmidt, CEO of Hegelmann Express GmbH, states, “Effective emissions monitoring in the transportation logistics industry not only increases accountability and transparency, but also allows businesses to identify areas for improvement and implement carbon-cutting strategies. The industry can work toward a more sustainable future and play an important role in mitigating the effects of climate change by tracking and adjusting emissions on a regular basis. It’s also phenomenal to be on this journey with Emitwise.”
However, to accelerate their transition, Hegelmann needs accurate and transparent data to drive business decisions. Emitwise’s carbon accounting platform is renowned for its granular approach to calculating emissions across all three scopes. This level of accuracy substantiates the steps Hegelmann will take to achieve its low-carbon targets.
“It’s fantastic to work with companies that understand the importance of digitalizing their carbon strategies,” states Mauro Cozzi, CEO and Co-founder of Emitwise. “Hegelmann has ambitious reduction targets, and they can only achieve the accuracy needed to make decisions and confidently take action through technology. Logistics sit at the heart of every global supply chain, and we’re thrilled that lowering Hegelmann’s emissions will significantly reduce those of their customers too.
Hegelmann Group is a leading European logistics and transportation company. Since its inception in 1998, the company has grown to operate in European countries and the United States in recent years., providing a variety of services such as road, intermodal, sea, and air freight, as well as warehousing and customs clearance. Hegelmann Group is known for providing high-quality services and innovative solutions to its clients’ changing needs. The company takes pride in its dedication to sustainability and lowering its carbon footprint through the use of environmentally friendly technologies and practices.
Emitwise is the carbon management platform for manufacturing businesses and supply chains across industries to confidently understand, track and reduce their carbon footprint. Emitwise combines 100 years of carbon accounting experience and machine learning technology to accelerate the climate action of the third most carbon-intensive industry globally. By increasing the accuracy of scope 3 emissions, the platform empowers companies with complex manufacturing supply chains to make carbon-led business decisions that lower risk, increase profitability, and deliver ambitious climate action.
4 new electric car charging stations with 8 access points have been installed in the parking lot of Hegelmann main office in Kaunas. UAB Hegelmann Transporte has received EUR 5,604.62 funding from the project “Privačių elektromobilių įkrovimo prieigų įrengimas” by Lithuanian Energy Agency announced invitation “Juridinių asmenų privačių elektromobilių įkrovimo prieigų įrengimas darbovietėse“.
The joint project was financed by Economic Revitalization and Resilience Enhancement Fund under the “Naujos kartos Lietuva” plan.
The Hegelmann Group was able to take delivery of its 2000th truck from the Munich-based commercial vehicle manufacturer at Hauser Schloss on the MAN Truck & Bus factory premises. Another 680 vehicles will follow.

SAN DIEGO, July 19, 2022 – TuSimple (Nasdaq: TSP), a global autonomous driving technology company, has announced its partnership with Hegelmann Group, a major European transport and logistics provider, that operates a fleet of over 5,000 vehicles, including an initial reservation of purpose-built SAE Level 4 (L4) Autonomous International® Trucks for operation in North America. The trucks will be equipped with TuSimple’s advanced autonomous driving system and will be based on a world-class global vehicle platform developed by Navistar.
Hegelmann’s partnership with TuSimple signals the symbiotic path of both partners to offer innovative solutions that address the ongoing driver shortage while lowering greenhouse gas emissions and improving vehicle and environmental safety. Hegelmann’s reservation of factory-production units with TuSimple technology is a primary action in developing a new state-of-the-art logistics network in North America called the TuSimple Autonomous Freight Network (AFN). Early studies show that autonomous trucks in this type of network have the potential to reduce fuel consumption for middle mile transportation.
“TuSimple’s innovations will elevate our ability to compete and prosper in the North American market and are analogous to our stated objective to become a global logistics technology adopter,” said Andrew Jasinskas, Business Development Project Manager – Hegelmann USA. “Undoubtedly autonomous trucks with TuSimple technology are the future of transportation, and Hegelmann’s strategy is to likewise be a standard bearer for innovations that push safety and efficiency to the next era of logistics excellence.”
“We are pleased to add Hegelmann to our rapidly growing fleet partners who wish to adopt, integrate, and scale SAE L4 truck operation in the United States,” said Lee White, Vice President of Strategy. “Hegelmann chose TuSimple as their autonomous vehicle technology partner due to TuSimple’s leadership in the rapidly approaching full-commercialization of autonomous vehicles.”
TuSimple demonstrated its leadership with the industry’s first Driver Out (no human intervention or operator) runs in 2021 which the company plans to continue through 2022 as it prepares for full commercialization. TuSimple’s Driver Out pilot program is the product of a year and a half of work to co-develop a L4 autonomous Class 8 vehicle with Navistar to demonstrate the level of redundancy, reliability, consistency, and safety necessary to remove the driver from the truck.
By the end of 2023, TuSimple plans to carry paid freight operations in high-density freight lanes in the southern US. Driver-out runs have been critical in scaling autonomous trucking operations on the TuSimple Autonomous Freight Network.

An important pillar of the Hegelmann Group is the digitalisation of our processes. Due to our broad portfolio of different services in the logistics sector, customised software solutions are essential for our operations.
Together with our new partner BPA Solutions, we are developing new software solutions that integrate seamlessly with our ERP and Microsoft teams. BPA Solutions has been offering individual software solutions for SharePoint and Microsoft Office since 2001. With the BPA Solution Builder, we can implement new projects faster and more reliably and further improve the user experience for our employees and our customers.
An important milestone was the document management for quality assurance. The focus here was on restructuring our processes towards incremental versioning of forms and other documents. Due to the constantly changing conditions in logistics, including legislative changes such as the introduction of the European Union’s mobility package, it is necessary to regularly adapt forms and processes to the new conditions. The document management developed by BPA Solutions also enables us to simplify approval processes between employees, supervisors and managing directors. This enables us to react confidently and quickly to changes and to optimise previous processes accordingly.
BPA Solutions also enables us to create e-learning quizzes and track employee results to simplify digital training and improve the learning experience.
The Swiss company offers a high level of flexibility and quality. Thanks to the integration with SharePoint, the new modules fit seamlessly into our existing business process. We will continue to work with BPA Solutions on similar projects in the future.
Hegelmann Express GmbH relies on digital solutions to optimise its processes. An interface can save a lot of time in work processes, which means that employees can be deployed even more efficiently.
As an internationally active transport service provider, Hegelmann Express GmbH faces the challenge of meeting time-critical delivery times with every transport. Because in the transport of goods, all wheels must mesh smoothly so that goods reliably reach their destination. For this reason, and in order to fulfil the wishes of our customers even more efficiently, we constantly scrutinise and improve all processes along the supply chain. After all, time is money – and avoidable errors cause unnecessary costs. For this reason, we are always on the lookout for ways and means to streamline and optimise the workflow.
One challenge for us as a family-run company is to integrate various digital solutions into our own process landscape. To solve this problem, we have now intensified our cooperation with the FreightTech company TIMOCOM and the ERP provider ABONA.
The German-based logistics multinational Hegelmann Group has joined IRU to support its ongoing green initiatives and to encourage and work within the broader industry on sustainable transport and logistics.
New hub is built near the border in the southwest of the country
Logistics company responds to mobility package requirements
Comprehensive service area for vehicles and drivers
Bruchsal/ Żarska Wieś (Poland), 16 July 2021 – The Hegelmann Group is building the first hub for truck drivers in Poland. The project, which is unique in the country, is being built in Żarska Wieś, in south-western Poland near the German border, on an area of just under twelve hectares. In addition to comprehensive service options for freight forwarders and vehicles, the operations centre also offers its own hotel and ample parking facilities. This is also the international transport and logistics company’s response to the increased requirements resulting from new EU regulations and the mobility package. So far, the investment has amounted to around 22 million euros. The opening of the complex, which will be successively expanded, is planned for mid-2022.
“With the hub, we are building an optimal service complex tailored to the needs of our drivers and employees. In addition, we are using it to support smaller haulage companies in meeting the requirements of the mobility package,” says Siegfried Hegelmann, shareholder of the Hegelmann Group. Hegelmann is the first company in the transport and logistics industry to set up an integrated operations centre in Poland. The site is divided into several zones: The approximately 7,000 square metre service area for trucks includes a workshop, a diagnostic facility, a paint shop and a truck wash. In addition, there is a spare parts and tyre warehouse of almost 6,000 square metres. “The entire range of services allows us to optimise repair times and ensure efficient operations,” says Hegelmann. In the future, another separate logistics complex and a storage centre are to be built here.
In addition to the company’s own office space, about 60 additional offices are available for external companies on the huge site. Also part of the expanded base is a hotel with over 750 beds. Drivers returning from European routes can spend their obligatory rest time there. Another advantage of the Hegelmann hub is the separate, high-quality commercial space set aside for business partners, freight forwarders and other transport companies. The generous parking areas around the offices, hotel, service areas and warehouses also provide space for 220 trucks and 450 cars. “The Hegelmann Hub in Poland is a transport base that is designed for optimal operation in many respects,” says Hegelmann.
The opening of the Hegelmann Hub Poland in mid-2022 will also have a positive impact on the region. The operations centre itself is expected to employ around 200 people. “Further jobs will be created by our business partners and other companies,” says Hegelmann.
The international transport and logistics company is launching its operations in North America as Hegelmann USA. The Chicago headquarters will start providing transport and logistics services at the beginning of January next year. An investment of around ten million euros in the growth of the new US branch is planned for the first three years. Hegelmann plans to open up further North and Central American markets in the future. The first target will be Canada. International growth is to be continued.
In the first year, at least 15 new jobs are to be created in the USA. The fleet will initially consist of ten standard trucks. Later, the fleet will be expanded with LNG or electricity-powered trucks. “We had already considered expanding into the US by the end of 2019. We want to become a global organisation that offers its services on the European, North American and Asian continents. We believe that by working hard and honestly, we can become a successful, ambitious and steadily growing player in the US and North American markets,” explains Andrew Jasinskas, Head of Business Development at Hegelmann Group, who is responsible for the US expansion.
Hegelmann already has links to the US market. “We offer logistics services for our American partners in Europe and are therefore already well connected,” says Jasinskas. Hegelmann plans to invest around two million euros in strategic growth and operations in the first year of expansion. Another eight million euros are to follow in the second and third years. Among other things, purchases of “dry van” trailers, thermal trailers, platforms, silos and car carrier trailers are planned. “We want to offer the same range of services in the USA as in Europe very quickly. We are a global and powerful company,” Jasinskas concludes.
Hegelmann Group has acquired five LNG-powered trucks (liquefied natural gas). These trucks will not only reduce pollution, but also contribute to the effectiveness of the company’s activities. It is expected that by 2025 they will make up at least 20 percent of the company’s total vehicle fleet, which currently includes about 4,000 trucks.
As part of the moving towards ecology, the company also seeks to point out the issue of forests in Europe due to drought and climate change, and plans to plant 7,000 trees in Europe – as a number of employees of the Hegelmann Group.
