One family - a common history

From our base in Bavaria we move freight all over the world.

It all began in 1959 when our company launched into the classic freight forwarding business with textile transports from Italy. Since then we have continuously developed our service portfolio and now offer our customers various transport solutions, supply chain management, warehousing, consulting and a whole lot more. As a third-generation family-owned company, we are proud of our 400+ dedicated employees, who use their expertise not only to handle day-to-day business, but also to fulfil individual and complex customer requests brilliantly.

Transport and warehouse logistics: modern and sustainable

Ultra-modern technology, truck fleets fitted with the best equipment and IT-supported warehouse logistics and transport systems all serve to ensure we remain at the cutting edge at all times. Moreover, we plan and act to save resources. Our entire service portfolio is based on economic, environmental and social sustainability in order to create new opportunities for future generations.

We are your innovative and family-owned freight forwarder

In 1959, Karlheinz Barth and Karl Scherbauer laid the foundations of BARTH+CO. Today, Peter Barth manages the company together with his sons Christoph and Alexander Barth. We are continuously expanding our range of services for you, just as we have done all along: including trustful cooperations, international partners, innovative products and solutions for logistics and freight forwarding, such as comprehensive services for warehousing, picking or returns management for the e-commerce sector. Our goal: to always be the best partner for our customers.
