Transimeksa is pleased to announce that the Frölich Internationale Transporte has made the decision to join Transimeksa and become our branch office. Frölich is a German company based in Hessisch Lichtenau, located near Kassel in the geographical center of Germany.
Frölich Internationale Transporte looks back upon a rich 135-year history as a Frölich family founded, owned, and managed business. The last 10 years were pivotal for positioning Frölich for the future. As part of its strategy, it has introduced and successfully developed an intermodal business between Germany and Italy utilizing a direct rail connection. Thereby, it has established a modern transport connection linking the northern and southern European markets through the alps. Furthermore, the rail link is simultaneously ecological and economic.
Frölich joins Transimeksa with its team of more than 90 motivated colleagues, own office and warehouse capacities in Hessisch Lichtenau, a fleet of 60 trucks, 90 trailers and a direct rail connection linking Kassel and Verona. Augmenting its intermodal businiss, Frölich also has well-established activities of FTL and LTL within the German domestic market as well as serving long term customers in Austria, Switzerland, Benelux and other European countries.
“The Frölich family is very pleased about the company’s development opportunities that result from joining the Transimeksa Group. This is a milestone in our succession plan. Its service offering, complementary geographic reach and prudently managed growth strategy make the Transimeksa Group the perfect new home for the enterprise I and my wife have devoted our lives to for more than four decades.” says Helmut Frölich.
“Geographic and service expansion into intermodal business has been part of the strategic plan of Transimeksa. Therefore, besides its well-reputed brand, Frölich brings professional know-how to the Transimeksa Group. Our plan for Frölich is to continue business as it is, to serve current customers with the current employee base. With the support of Transimeksa Group, Frölich will expand its business and widen the service portfolio. Also, by joining Transimeksa Group, Frölich will have the full support from our entire team and access to the pool of resources enabling further growth. By joining forces, both companies will be able to provide a wider scope and better service quality to existing and new clients.” says Darius Vyšniauskas, CEO of Transimeksa.

Together with Frölich, Transimeksa Group has more than 1,200 employees, a fleet of more than 600 trucks and 800 trailers, over 50. 000 sq m warehousing space and offices in Lithuania, Germany, Russia, Italy, Latvia, Estonia and Belarus.
