April 1st, 1962
At that day Bruno F. Ludwig founded our company in Ludwigshafen.
Bruno F. Ludwig had spent several years as manager in the well known forwarding company UTB. In the beginning he worked in different agencies, also in the Orient, at last in the headquarter of the company in Dusseldorf, where he gained big experience in the world of domestic and international transport.
A closely connection to his home, brought him back to Palatinate where he founded after a little while Intertrans LTD in Ludwigshafen. He said : "This is not an April fool".
"Mit Intertrans gefahren heißt Zeit und Mühe sparen" (In English: "To choice Intertrans means to save time and effort") was his slogan.
By strong personal engagement and the encouragement of qualified collaborators, he managed in short time to achieve a good reputation and to develop the company consequently in the areas of Palatinate/Baden/Saarland.
After his suddenly death in 1979, his daughter Sigrid Peters took over the company as acting managing director and followed consequently the predetermined way of her father.
Mr Hans Gunter Käge, who was acting as well since 1979 as managing director has gone into his well-deserved retirement at 1st January 2005. Since that time, Mr Michael Peters, the son of the owner, has taken over the management in third generation.
In the year 2007 Michael Peters became the new managing partner, his mother is still in the management too.
Today, the company employs more than 100 people. The core activities are concentrated on international forwarding services. Due to strong western and eastern partnerships we are developing this field continuously. Europe-wide transport of bulk goods is also part of the Intertrans service portfolio. As shareholder of the CTL (Cargo Trans Logistik) network we offer to our domestic customers as well as to our international partners on time and reliable delivery all over Germany within 24 / 48 hours.
As a customer oriented service enterprise our key note is quality and service. This is approved by our customers in confidence and long-term collaboration.
Since the foundation of the company Intertrans is a well known and high-performance vocational education plant and is awarded every year by the chamber of commerce and industry of Rhineland-Palatinate.
On April the 1st, 2012, INTERTRANS celebrated the 50. anniversary.
INTERTRANS has been based at its new company location in Bobenheim-Roxheim in the Palatinate since January 1st, 2018. Due to the constant and organic growth of the company, the office space as well as the storage and handling area for the growing volume of shipments and storage not only became too small, but also no longer met the current requirements of a modern forwarding company. Mainly, however, the cramped traffic conditions on Kaiserwörthdamm made a move for the company indispensable. The available loading bays alone have increased from eight to more than 45 gates on the 5.6 hectare site in Bobenheim-Roxheim. Another important line of business was also able to position itself accordingly - storage and order picking. Today, the new location has a modern high-bay warehouse with 5,300 pallet spaces and around 10,000 m² of floor space for block storage.
On April the 1st 2022, INTERTRANS celebrated the 60. anniversary
