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.
