Competence thanks to experience and tradition

Bork’s sustainable business development is the result of strong team performance – and is based on more than half a century of experience. This competence has grown and is now more impressive than ever.

Starting off as a carrier under the name “Hüttenberger Kraftverkehr”, the company has grown under its own steam. The company’s expertise and services have been extended, the carrier developed into a high-performance shipping company under the direction of Erwin Bork. The name Bork makes one thing clear: Customers can depend on the speed and flexibility of a family-owned business. Wolfgang Bork took over from his father Erwin Bork and is now the second-generation family member to head the company. His son, Steffen Bork, has also worked for the company for many years and plays an important role in its success.

Independence, experience and the informal family-like closeness of the company to its customers ensure that Spedition Bork is well prepared to meet the kinds of exacting demands that are expected in the near future and in decades to come.
