It all started 50 years ago…
with one single step.

From then onwards, we have not stopped yet. We learned to face all the transport challenges, to grow, to keep up with all the new technologies. Today? Today we are that carrier you can trust, that carrier that solves all your transportation problems, that carrier that is always One Step Ahead. We are your FTL carrier.

It was in 1965 when Ernst Hartl senior laid the cornerstone for the HARTL Group in Saalfelden/Austria. In the first few years, lumber shipments were made from the Salzburg area to southern Italy.

In 1977, the company specialised in transportation from Germany to Italy and back.

In 1986, the location in Vomp was founded. From then onwards HARTL expanded its sphere of influence. Fast and reliable FTL transportation services all across the European Union transformed HARTL into an internationally operating company. With this expansion, the organisation had to adapt: new legal entities around specific core competencies were set up in order to deliver specialised benefits to our customers.

Founded in 2006, this branch is located in the economic center of Romania’s west. With its skilled workforce and competitive resource costs, Timisoara provides a perfect base for the economically emergent market in Romania.

In 2013, “Hartl Transport GmbH” was re-named “Hartl Connect Transport GmbH”, which is a service-oriented full-scale logistics partner that organises high-quality and speed transport solutions across the EU. “Hartltrans Romania SRL” was re-named “Hartl Carrier SRL”, which focuses on moving cargo from A to B in a fast and reliable manner, using its own fleet of 200 Tautliners. These steps illustrate the multi-facetted orientation of the HARTL Group towards transportation service solutions of all kinds.

This year, we are proud to be able to celebrate our 50th year in business.

Expanding our business to increase capacity and better serve new markets.

The year of innovation. When it comes to technology we are also one step ahead. We keep up with the transportation technologies and aim to implement all-digital processes, so we can offer our clients premium services and 100% transparency.
