We connect people and markets

Seven Senders wants to connect. With a lot of knowledge and on the highest technical level we connect our customers with their customers, Europe-wide and thus enable the best parcel shipping.

"It's a pleasure for us to provide a top-of-the-line solution for each individual parcel: the most suitable local delivery service, the most effective linehaul, the most proactive tracking solution. Even the return should be a great experience for customers. We're not satisfied with less than that."
Dr. Johannes Plehn

"Our help can also enable dealers abroad to act like local professionals. You can use shipping to be exactly the shop where the customer prefers to order - no matter where they ship from."
