We are pleased to announce that we have opened a new office in Ludwigsburg near Stuttgart as of 01 February this year. This move is in line with our strategy to increase our market presence, expand our European Ancotrans network and offer more local opportunities to our customers 

Enormous opportunities for intermodal transport.

The south-west of Germany offers enormous opportunities for intermodal transport. The greater Stuttgart area and Baden-Württemberg are home to numerous global companies and are therefore an industrial centre with great potential. The geographical location also offers additionalopportunities between Munich, the French border and the greater Mannheim area.  

The new office and team will be led by Bastian Koch, who is our new Operations Manager for South West Germany. Bastian was born and raised in Heilbronn and now lives in the region with his family. Bastian has spent his entire professional career in the transport/logistics sector and has held various management positions with personnel and operational responsibility in Mannheim and Karlsruhe.  

“Our aim is to offer our customers in Stuttgart the best local and Europe-wide service, so that we are the first choice for container trucking in south-west Germany. We are ready to serve our customers. Our vehicles will now also show our presence on the road”

Operations Manager, Germany South West

More than 140 years of transports

It all began with horse and carriage. In 1882 the founder, Anders Nielsen, offered horse powered transport of luggage to and from the ports of Copenhagen. From there the business grew, and from 1904 we operated as a trusted contractor for Københavns Frihavns Aktieselskab/Copenhagen’s Freeport. Since then, the company has been passed down from father to daughter and son-in-law, from son to son and, most recently from father to daughter.

When Henrik Steenbjerge came into the company in 1969 Ancotrans had a fleet of around fifty trucks and still a few horses in the stable! The trucks transported everything from beer to asphalt. Luckily, Henrik Steenbjerge saw the global tendency towards container freight and in the 1970s decided to focus on this niche. A very successful strategy. In 1982 Anders Nielsen & Co/Ancotrans opened our first office in Aarhus. And in 2008 we opened our first office outside Denmark; Ancotrans GmbH in Hamburg. Later more offices were opened to best serve our clients nationally as well as internationally.

Today our truck number 1882 runs out of South West Germany, reminding us where it all started.
