Since the company was founded in 1836 until the enlargement of the European Union in 2004, C. Spaarmann was mainly active as a customs and cross-border transport company. Initiated in the mid-‘90s and successfully realised within one decade has become the greatest challenge in the history of the company. C. Spaarmann looks back at a successful development from a former family business which has been specialised in customs clearance between East and West to a medium-sized, international active forwarding and logistics company - with branches in Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and Central Asia. Since 2018, C. Spaarmann has been part of the globally operating Rhenus Group. This ensures a high-performance and secure future for customers and employees, especially regarding to the challenges of an advancing globalization. Join us on a journey and take a look at the history of the company.


The takeover of the forwarding agency branch of the former LEP group (today Agility) at Forst (Lusatia), Brandenburg, located directly at the Polish border, has laid the foundations for the establishment of a transport and forwarding business from and to Eastern Europe. In the following years further branches at home and abroad have been established.


With the establishment of the European Union customs control of intra-European trade is dropped overnight. Under the effect of the political changes and the associated loss of customs clearances it was decided to establish new business fields.
