Innovation has been part of Schnellecke's DNA from the very beginning. " With value-added logistics, Rolf Schnellecke has entered completely new territory in the forwarding 

industry and developed a successful business model with great foresight that has shaped an entire industry," says Anita Würmser, executive jury chairperson of the Logistics Hall of Fame, explaining the decision of the international jury of experts to admit Rolf Schnellecke to this renowned institution in 2018.

Schnellecke could claim to have significantly influenced and further developed automotive logistics beyond the boundaries of his company. “His early approaches to expand the pure transport and storage processes and to offer value-added services and production activities as an outsourcing partner were visionary and had a ground-breaking influence on automotive logistics,” according to the jury's statement.

This innovative strength characterizes Schnellecke to this day. RFID, Google Glass, Internet of Things, Kinect, Air Drones, Cloud - in many areas Schnellecke has been the first to use new technologies in recent years. This experience has now also flowed into the new product TransportControl.
