The history of our logistics company began in the post-war years.
QTRADO Logistics developed from the logistics department of the press wholesaler Presse Keppel, which was founded in 1945 in Krefeld. In 1997, the logistics division was renamed ztv Zustell-, Transport- und Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG was founded as an independent company. In April 2019 Presse Keppel merged with three other press wholesalers in North Rhine-Westphalia. In connection with this merger, ztv was renamed QTRADO Logistics and takes over locations and logistical tasks step by step.
Our deep roots in the press sector are the foundation of our core competencies. Hardly any other logistics task is as demanding as business with the daily press. In our dynamically managed central warehouse we work 365 days a year and around the clock. A central computer calculates the most effective storage location on an area of 40,000m² as a block, pallet, shelf and small parts warehouse.
Our locations in Krefeld Linn, Krefeld Fichtenhain, Dortmund, Duisburg, Gelsenkirchen and Leverkusen form the basis of our logistical efficiency, which is provided by a total of 330 employees. As impressive as the state-of-the-art warehouse may seem, storage is only one pillar of the business model, which is divided into three areas: fulfillment, action logistics and transport logistics.
High performance in tight time windows, flexibility in exceptional situations and sensitivity for valuable products distinguish us. This enables us to provide services of the highest quality at economically attractive conditions. This applies to day-to-day business as well as to special projects or the implementation of new business models.
In order to give you a deeper insight into our work, we present some practical examples on our website.
Perhaps you also have a current project task or areas in which we can support you permanently.
