Founded in 1844 in Germany, Hillebrand is the global leading solutions provider in the forwarding, transport and logistics of beverages and other products that require special care.

The combination will continue its business under the name Hillebrand Gori. The next phase in the company’s journey is inspired by its rich heritage and focuses on accelerated growth, enhancing customer experience and positioning it as the undisputed leader in logistics of goods that deserve special care.

The organization was built on a vision to operate within every wine producing and consuming area around the world, with people who act locally and connect globally. Strategically locating offices close to market, it is also present in every country where beer and spirits are crafted and through this network every aspect of shipping is managed – from origin to destination. Hillebrand Gori has achieved this through organic growth, mergers and acquisitions and its ability to adapt to the changing demands in both the logistics and beverage environment.

Hillebrand’s expertise in the logistics of beverages, beer, wine and spirits is an excellent addition to our portfolio. In line with our Group Strategy 2025, we can further strengthen our logistics core and benefit our shareholders with profitable, long-term growth", says Frank Appel, CEO Deutsche Post DHL Group.
