We combine professional transportation with increasing value added services to meet individual customer needs and improve their creation of value – in theory this are simple words. In the practice it requires a high performance of each employee every day. As a result of this, the Hans Peter Nolden Spedition developed a corporate strategy which proves its future ability and sustainability since five generations.
In 1886 Mr. Hubert Nolden founded in the current Erftstadt-Friesheim a transport company which covered a wide range of services – including trade with agricultural goods – already before the turn of the century.
The various products of the village producers were registered, consolidated, classified after sorts and qualities, stored, packed and transported. In the second generation – in the beginning of the twentieth century – Mr. Adolf Nolden took over the company.
In the 1930s with two Opel-trucks we started in the regional road transportation. After 1945 during the reconstruction years Peter Nolden – the father of the current head of the company – extended the forwarding business in the first instance in local transportations. Border crossings to Belgium and the Netherlands offered an access to the free European road system. In the 1960s the company developed a new business segment with long-distance transports to the Benelux area and France.
The disposition leader of transportation Tobias Nolden today represents the fifth generation of the family company. His brother Andreas Nolden takes part in the family business with his legitimate independent motor vehicle service NKS (Nolden Kraftfahrzeug Service). The personnel administration is under management of Dorothea Nolden, the wife of the head of the company Hans Peter Nolden.
With a high level of investments in the own truck fleet and the storage sector, the Spedition Nolden is preparing new strategical steps, which make us more and more attractive for the industry and trade sector. The traffic intensity, which is consistently increasing, is making it more and more attractive for the industry and trade sector to make use of logistics value added services.
For the customer, the value added services are getting more and more important. In fact of this, these services are very important for our company as well.
Since October 2018 the company has been certified according to the quality management standard ISO 9001:2015 as well as Green Logistics. In order to meet with the company's own claim for continuous further development, value-added services for the customer in transport logistics still remain at the centre of Nolden Spedition's activities in the second century of the company's history.
