Owner Managed – Family Business in the 3rd Generation.
The Roaring Twenties
In the year 1929 Herbert Johannes Schryver, the present owner’s father, founded the company – a courageous and ambitious step during the worldwide economic crisis. If Herbert Johannes Schryver had followed his grandfather’s will, he would have become a shoemaker.
Due to the bad times, however, the store owner had to give up his trade. So, close to this location, in the house of the “Seeschifffahrt”, the founder’s career began in a well-known forwarding company.
The Post-War Era
Only at the beginning of the Fifties could former relationships be revived. However, the war soon brought business to a complete standstill. At that time, the German export economy began to boom. It was the time for a new beginning and changes.
The first teletypewriters with ticker tapes were set up and overseas calls were seen as sensational. Carbon copies were soon replaced by photocopies and previously required consular invoices disappeared almost completely.
1970´s - 90´s
German Export Boom
In the following years until 1979 – when the company celebrated its 50th Anniversary – the container began to triumph by replacing nearly all other methods of transport, resulting in an expansion of transport volume never seen before.
Since the beginning of the Eighties, branch offices have been established in Latin America, and our partnerships in Asia, Africa, and Australia have been expanded. Combined with the opening of our specialized airfreight offices, new traffic ways have also been developed.
Innovation & Evolution
Today Schryver is represented across the globe – with the personal touch of an independent and privately owned freight forwarder who really cares about the customers and gets things moving.
The whole group consists of 8 companies with more than 20 branch offices and about 250 employees world-wide. Without our professional employees our company would have never had such success and continuous growth. The employees are always the ones whom make the company what it is and will do so in the future.
