As sole German agent of the Famous Pacific Shipping Group, we are not only represented on all continents, but also offer complete door-to-door services.

The successful evolution of the Emons Group is underpinned by aspirations to high performance among our motivated, trained staff, who strongly identify with the Company and personally care for our customers. Our own equipment (vehicle fleet and real property) contributes to dependability and stability. Our quality-management system, organized under our own responsibility (in line with TQM), is geared toward the needs and requirements of our customers. This ensures a high degree of customer satisfaction. Our quality is also enhanced by our competence in IT and e-business. It is the use of modern information and communication technologies in particular that forms the sound basis for the control and constant optimation of our operations and processes and for satisfying our customers’ growing information needs. Examples of our innovative power include ETA (estiamted time of arrival), the new Tracking & Tracing tool and the online capturing program myEmons.
As a medium-sized and group-independent family-run business, we have a solid capital and investment base, a future-proof equity-capital ratio as well as a financial and bank rating that stands out from the sectoral average.
