History

Profiting from the flourishing grain and feeding stuff trade in the port of Hamburg at the beginning of the 20th century, the merchants Franz Albers and Andreas Hansen founded companies offering to their clients the execution of superintendence, weighing of goods, documentation and forwarding of the commodities to the final recipients.

Their companies were founded in 1910 and in 1913 respectively. Mr. Franz Albers concentrated on the clients in northern Germany, whereas Mr. Andreas Hansen put the stress of his business activities on clients from Scandinavia.

When the economy began to redevelop after World War II, this was the beginning of a prosperous period for both companies. Apart from further activities in the port and shipping businesses they expanded by founding joint and subsidiary companies in Germany as well as overseas.

In response to the vivid structural changes and the increasing concentration of the market, both companies reduced their fields of business activities during the 1980's. Working in cooperation since 1st January 2000 as Albers-Hansen GmbH, they focused on four fields of activities: Superintendence, Chartering, Agency and Forwarding.

Currently we have a staff of 18 employees in our office in Hamburg and on external duty.
