It was 1987 when Karl and Susanne Frühauf decided to found their own haulage company together with the GAW Group. As you would expect from family people like them, they named the company after their son Thomas - not knowing at the time that he would also run the company years later.
With his down-to-earth and trusting way of doing business, Karl Frühauf and his wife laid the foundation for the values that are still central to our family business today.
Much has changed since the company was founded. The world has become more fast-paced and globalised, which also makes customer requirements increasingly complex. While the environment in the forwarding business has changed a lot, personal contact with customers remains a constant for Spedition “Thomas“, which Thomas Frühauf has also carried forward as a core company value from his parents since he joined the company.
For us, every order is not just a job, but a challenge that we want to take on together with our customers. Then as now.
Spedition “Thomas“ stands for competence, trust and service quality. We always focus on the needs and wishes of our customers. This usually leads us via the best, most efficient and safest route from A to B - and sometimes beyond.
personal & reliable
Valuable freight needs reliable partners. That's why we invest time and interest in our customers' concerns. For us, it's not just about transporting goods from A to B. Rather, we want to find the best way and offer individual overall solutions. To achieve this, we rely on trust, open communication and handshake quality.
solution-oriented & flexible
While our freight often covers great distances, our information and decision-making channels are short and our projects lean and agile in their handling and implementation. For us, responsiveness and proactive action are just as much a part of our daily business as providing holistic advice and support to our customers.
pathbreaking & competent
It is not only our customers' freight that is constantly on the move. Our motto is also: don't stand still. We always keep our eyes open to make our services even more efficient and better in the future. This is how we ensure that our solutions always meet the latest requirements and standards. And that is what drives us.
In a time when many things can already be automated by systems, personal contact becomes more important for us again. Trustful partnerships are the foundation for individual solutions and successful projects.
