Our success

The secret to our success lies in the beginnings of GO! Founded in 1984 as a consortium of courier services, today GO! is the medium-sized quality leader in the CEP sector in Germany. The idea of networking has determined our business activities from the very beginning.

The individual GO! Stations work to a large extent independently and thus have the necessary resources to respond flexibly to local conditions on site and the individual needs of their customers. The GO! Head Office in Bonn coordinates the processes in the extensive network and ensures compliance with uniformly high quality standards. The central sorting centre in Niederaula, Hessen, is the link between all stations and the lifeblood of the GO! system. IT serves as a collection centre and hub for all shipments that are not handled via one of the six regional hubs. In the HUBs, the shipments are sorted and loaded according to the respective destination station.
