The Hamburg Karl Rapp established its subsidiary Karl Rapp Rotterdam in 1954. For many years the subsidiary continues to grow and finally becomes independent in the 1970s, after which the head office is established in the Waalhaven.


During the 1990s, a new, important step followed. Karl Rapp moved to Spijkenisse and started using its own specialized sheds. Today, Karl Rapp Rotterdam BV is still an independently operating company and is a significant player in the field of logistics service providers.
