The Wild Geese


More than a Company Logo

The V-shaped formation of the wild geese is for us a symbol of perfect cooperation. None of the animals could manage the journey alone. The migratory birds plan their flights down to the smallest detail, weigh risks together, and have excellent communication. Wild geese are loyal to each other for a lifetime and have a strong sense of responsibility.

For us, these are characteristics that also make an excellent logistics service provider. Therefore the wild goose is more than a logo for us, it symbolizes our philosophy as a family business and forms the basis for our success. The wild goose is a trademark that suits us.
