    In 2017, around 1.000 employees working at nine locations generated a nationwide annual revenue of roughly 250 million Euros. The revenue share of transport with cargo aircraft alone amounted to approximately 127 million Euros, with an estimated 120.000 tons of freight having been dispatched.

    Zeitfracht was established in 1947 by Horst Walter Schröter, son of a cargo entrepreneur in Stendal. Since the 1970s the family­run logistics provider took over various forwarders and was also one of the founders of Deutscher Paket Dienst (DPD) in 1976.

    Regarding forwarding, logistics and transport services the Zeitfracht group is currently attempting the establishment of a European express network for lightweight cargo pieces before the end of the year. Moreover, the group acquired former Air­Berlin subsidiary Leisure Cargo and also enlarged its transport portfolio by taking over WDL Aviation. To enable transport of fast deliveries between airports and clients, Zeitfracht cooperates with the package provider DPD. In addition, further acquisitions in the fields of truck logistics and air traffic are planned.
