Post-war period, two men, four wheels and an idea. From the initiative of these two men, Günther Brümmer and Hugo von Rautenkranz, the forwarding agency BurSped was founded in Hamburg with only one truck in 1948.

In 1969, the company ELKAWE Container-Service-u.-Vertriebs-GmbH & Co. KG was established; the company manages the truck fleet for the limited partnership Bursped Speditons-GmbH & Co..

In 1988 Günther Brümmer took over the international forwarding agency Carl Köster & Louis Hapke GmbH & Co. KG in Hanover.

Another member of our company group is LOREL Logistik GmbH. The service company has been working in the field of warehousing, principally in the automotive sector as a key element of a renowned automobile manufacturer in Bremen, for more than 15 years. In addition to classic warehousing of the finished products, LOREL also takes on the tasks of Cross Dock and empties handling as well as set formation and packet singulation.

On 1.07.2004, the newly founded joint venture companies KG BURSPED Spedition GmbH & Co. Bremen, A. Hartrodt Bremen and Schmidt-Gevelsberg Bremen joined the new company BHS Spedition & Logistik GmbH.

In Hamburg, Hanover and Bremen, all three houses are members of CargoLine GmbH & Co. KG.
