Behind the Scenes
Owner Markus Heckhausen runs AMPELMANN as a family company: personally, responsibly, and with an appreciation of everyone both individually and collectively. This makes us strong as a whole team – and has a positive impact on everything we do.
The AMPELMANN Logistics Centre
In Berlin Moabit is our very own AMPELMANN logistics centre. All our AMPELMANN products are stored here and delivered to our eight AMPELMANN shops and retail customers with our own fleet of delivery vans. Your order from the AMPELMANN webshop is also processed and sent out from here.
Some facts about our logistics centre:
1500 parcels a month (national and international)
- 15 colleagues working in the logistics team
The Ampelmännchen are going on their travels!
Not only in Germany are the red and green Ampelmännchen loved – the east German Ampelmännchen are also firm favorites in China. How do our products reach this far away land? We will show you. We have made a film together with the airport Berlin Brandenburg and the logistics company Rieck showing how our cult products travel to china from Berlin. In the video our logistics manager Gordon puts together the order and brings it to the airport in our own AMPELMANN delivery van. The Ampelmännchen are then loaded on board and arrive in China after a long flight. At the end of the film you can also see a few dream destinations visited by the Ampelmännchen. Do you know where they are?
Bon voyage Ampelmännchen!
