Haberling can look back at more than 100 years of its company history.
It all began with Robert Haberling’s idea to start a haulage company with a horse and wagon in the year 1907. The small family business established itself quickly, grew, and survived despite several economic recessions and both World Wars, including the destruction of its premises during the bombing. After the retirement of the founder's grandson in 1976, the helm was passed over to forwarding agent Dieter Kress, who was taken on by the firm as an apprentice in 1957. Haberling’s nephew Martin Kress joined the company in 1988. After years of jointly managing the company, it was passed on completely to the upcoming generation in 2009.
In 1992, the company was able to move from its rented premises in Berlin Kreuzberg to a newly built logistics centre in Berlin Charlottenburg-North. That location was expanded in 1999 and 2004 by building additional new warehouses. In the meantime, the company has developed into a logistics service provider with around 60 employees, a modern vehicle fleet and customers all over the world.
