The QTRADO Group, an efficient association
The QTRADO Group under the umbrella of QTRADO Holding GmbH & Co. KG consists of several companies that have been active for many decades in the three major areas of wholesale, retail and logistics.
Business partners and customers can rely on our many years of experience. Even though the QTRADO brand has only been on the market since April 2019, the previous companies all have a robust history dating back to the beginning of the 20th century.
With the start of operations in April 2019, QTRADO GmbH & Co. KG is Germany's largest press wholesaler. As of October 2022, this position has been further strengthened by the expansion with three locations in the middle and eastern part of Germany. With the combined forces of previously five companies, we can achieve more than each of them individually: together we are stronger in sales and even more creative in developing new marketing strategies and ideas for our customers.

HOLLMANN is active in the retail trade as part of the QTRADO Group. Founded in 1946 by Paul Hollmann, the company initially focused on newspaper and magazine wholesaling in the Düsseldorf area. In the 1950s, newspaper trading was established at Düsseldorf Airport and the first store opened there. With the expansion and growth of Düsseldorf Airport, further Buch & Presse businesses were added over the decades. HOLLMANN currently operates four Buch & Presse Shops and three YOUR PRESENT Shops at Düsseldorf Airport as well as two Buch & Presse Shops in Düsseldorf city centre.
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 October 2022, we streengthened our position by expanding with tree locations in central and eastern Germany. QTRADO Logistics is perfectly positioned as a fulfilment service provider and benefits from the resources of the group of companies.
The economy, e-commerce and logistics are changing at a rapid pace. With combined forces, we not only manage the tasks that arise from this, but we also actively shape this change ourselves. This is the only way we can continue to be a competent partner for our customers and an attractive employer for qualified employees at our locations.
We are looking forward to a common future in a challenging market!
