NTS History


NTS was established in 1988 by Michael Neukirchen.

Operating from an office on the outskirts of Dusseldorf, Germany, NTS Initially provided transportation solutions to local companies for their domestic requirements.

During the years that followed, NTS gradually expanded and developed specialist services to meet all of our customers' needs.

As the European Union expanded, and international trade developed across the continent, the decision was made to commence an international service. Operating from Dusseldorf, Germany, we continued to enjoy a gradual expansion and develop our services further still into the whole of Europe.

During 1996, NTS opened a satellite office in Nurnberg, Germany to aid our increasing customer base in Southern Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Hungary. Our customers situated in these areas benefited from reduced response times, and the knowledge that our experienced staff would be able to provide the best solutions for their transport requirements.

NTS experienced a rapid growth period from that point forward, to become a leading supplier of express and time sensitive transport solutions in Germany.

Trade between Germany and the United Kingdom increased substantially, including the movement of freight for various industry types. NTS discovered that the volume of freight moving between these countries and the demand for vehicles to carry such consignments was also rapidly increasing.

Following this evident trend, We increased our fleet size to ensure that our availability and service levels were maintained. We also began to form partnerships with companies across the United Kingdom, of whom we still work closely with today.

By 2002 it was evident to NTS that the volumes of freight being transported between Germany and the United Kingdom was continuing to grow, and to ensure that we maintained our control and development on all aspects of our services, NTS International Express Limited was formed.
