Transway GmbH - over 40 years of experience

Since 1983, Transway has been at the disposal of its customers as a service enterprise in the logistics sector for global imports and exports. As a medium sized enterprise, we are always in a position to offer global transport solutions as well as regular route transportation. We work with cooperation partners worldwide that operate in line with our requirements and pursue the same philosophy.

Flexibility, customer-oriented planning of freight flows as well as market-oriented pricing and the greatest possible service have been distinguishing us for many years. Transway has set itself the task to relieve its customers of the everyday business woes and do more than merely organize transportation from A to B. Here we are, 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, to advise and support you.

As a service provider enterprise specialized in ocean freight, we are closely connected to all the relevant shipping lines and transportation companies. The most modern communication technologies such as, for example, our online connection to the seaports and customs offices (DAKOSY, port handling – BHT, ATLAS), allow us to optimally prepare your shipments, even before they arrive at the seaport, for port handling, customs clearance and shipping.


  • 1983

    Transway Int. Sped. GmbH was founded in August 1983 by the entrepreneur Josef F. Pfefferle with a small, highly motivated team. From the beginning, the focus was on acquiring know-how, so that Transway Int. Sped. GmbH was quickly able to make a name for itself, especially in the pharmaceutical sector, which we still serve successfully today. Since then, we have constantly expanded our competences and are active for almost all economic sectors.

    As one of the first sea freight forwarders in the hinterland, Transway Int. Sped. GmbH has created an online data connection to the German seaports, so that we can act as a fully comprehensive sea freight forwarder without losing the proximity to our customers.

  • 1997

    In 1997, Transway Airfreight was founded as an independent limited company, which has been enormously successful on the international market to this day and is growing steadily.

    The logical conclusion from the existence of the two sister companies was the foundation of Transway Holding GmbH.

  • 2010

    In 2010, the Transway Group recognised the signs of the times and opened up the internet with the "electronic salesperson" in the market segment of freight forwarders. Since then, the internet presence and the digital connection to our customers have been continuously developed.

    One of the most important milestones was the certification as an Authorised Economic Operator (AEO). The associated measures and customs regulations enable us to offer our customers maximum security for their goods.

  • 2018

    The biggest milestone for Transway Int. Sped. GmbH was the construction and occupation of our own company building in 2018. This allowed us to realise ourselves with our team on over 200m² and enjoy the modern premises.

  • 2021

    A new era is dawning for Transway int. Sped. GmbH in 2021. With the implementation of an online transport platform, we can optimise almost all work processes and save our customers time and therefore money.

We are certified

As an Authorised Economic Operator, your goods are in good hands with us!

The recognition of further third countries will follow.


Sustainability is a well-known topic in logistics. With a range of sustainable, environmentally friendly transport solutions, we can significantly improve the carbon footprint.
Sea freight accounts for the largest share of the international flow of goods, so the issue is taken very seriously here. Container shipping is already one of the most environmentally friendly of all modes of transport. Of course, this is not the end of the story. Research is constantly being carried out, new fuels are being developed, transport routes are being consolidated as far as possible, and work is being done on new drive systems. It can be assumed that in the next 10-15 years further innovations will further reduce the CO2 footprint of sea freight.
