1997 Werta becomes an official partner of the global partner network of Hellmann Worldwide Logistics – company with German roots and worldwide coverage.

Hellmann is one of the first companies to successfully replace their horse-drawn fleet with coal-powered trucks in Germany. Four generations later, Hellmann is a company with a worldwide network of 20,500 people in 489 branches in 173 countries.
2006 Hellmann receives the coveted „Award of Excellence” from the Global Institute of Logistics.
By joining the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) in 2012 Hellmann Worldwide Logistics has committed itself to certain standards in the fields of human rights, labor low, environmental protection and the fight against corruption.
