1939 - Founding
Leopold Schäfer GmbH
It all started with Leopold Schäfer transporting oxcart products to the station in the Siegerland Neunkirchen. In 1939 Leopold Schäfer founded his forwarding business. In the war horses and motor vehicles were drafted by the military. After the war, the company was motorized. In 1960, the freight forwarder developed special slanting units, with which the container and soil industry, which is still rooted in Siegerland today, was served.
1987 - Founding
SIS Internationale Speditions-GmbH
In 1987, four freight forwarders, who came together from a logistics group, founded the SIS Internationale Speditions GmbH in Siegen for overseas traffic on water, on the road, inland waterways, railroad tracks and in the air. In addition, they also specialized in more complex transports to Middle East and the challenges of paper logistics. In order to be able to offer the customers, in addition to the international transports, the land transports from a single source, they decided at the end of 1990 to buy the Leopold Schäfer GmbH.
1990/1991 - Formation of brand name Schäfer&SIS Interlogistik®
In 1991 SIS Internationale Speditions-GmbH moved to Leopold Schäfer GmbH in Neunkirchen. The merger will turn the fresh company into a one-stop-shopping logistics service provider in Neunkirchen / Siegerland. Four years later, the first foreign branch in Kaliningrad, such as representations in the Czech Republic and Poland are founded. 1996 - 1997 Schäfer & SIS Interlogistik® joins the Cargoline, the ECON Alliance and the GAP. In the next few years, the foundations will be followed by branches in Estonia (Tallin), Berlin, Hanover, Shanghai, Moscow and Bratislava (Slovakia). Through cooperation with national and international partners, including the CTN and our own offices, we have a worldwide network that enables us to solve your problems anywhere in the world. Our team of more than 450 employees is always available for the professional solution. In addition, there are selected experts who we consult depending on the situation.
Beginning in the 90s, further companies were founded in Germany and abroad and affiliated companies were established. That's what the S-Group® brand was all about. Today, the S-Group® encompasses the work of 450 people working for it under the slogan "people with people" and generates around 130 million euros in total sales per year.
In the mid-nineties, Leopold Schäfer GmbH became a shareholder in the European general cargo logistics alliance Cargoline .de. Beginning in 2000, our group joined Global Logistics alliances. At every business location in the world we have the necessary expertise in transport, forwarding, warehousing and distribution for the sales and procurement industry.
