Philosopy / History

... it all began back in the mid-1990s when Olaf Karstendiek and Marcus Rauscher were still employees: the focus was set on customer-oriented services - with a preference for 'industrial machines', in particular machine tools and the injection moulding industry.

Reputable companies in these fields were soon impressed by the pronounced focus on service and customer-specific needs and wants. The foundations for many business relationships were laid that to this day are successfully maintained and intensely nurtured.

At the time there was only one solution to consistently pursuing and implementing the ideas for extending the range of services:

the foundation of a proprietary company in 2007 - K + R Logistics.

Shortly after the new enterprise was founded (it started out with 5 former employees), new team members were recruited and the young company began to expand.

Business transactions with globally operating manufacturers of ship propulsion systems from Finland were integrated and successfully expanded. Deliveries from all over Europe to large shipyards in the Far East became routine occurrences - unit weights of up to 150 tons were and still are being shipped.

New business areas were added, such as deliveries to a large corporation in Mexico's oil and gas industry. To date, all deliveries coming from Europe are transported by ship - from small shipments to complete propulsion systems weighing up to 50 tons per unit.
