The family business Galliker: Achieving great things together

Since its foundation in 1918, we have continuously built up and developed our company together with our employees. The small "haulage company" in Hofstatt has grown into a logistics company operating throughout Europe with 19 locations in 6 countries and its headquarters in Altishofen, Lucerne.


Family business
with tradition

Galliker Transport AG is still 100% family-owned today. The financial independence allows the traditional company to invest independently in the future of the company. "We don't think in quarters, we plan in generations" - today under the management of the third and fourth Galliker generations. Building on the knowledge and experience of existing long-serving employees, we rely on young talent and the passing on of know-how and skills in the interests of sustainability.

Cleanliness and order

Whether it's the warehouse, office workplace or the condition of our vehicle fleet - cleanliness and order are more than just a requirement for us. Order leads to structured action and creates trust and security. Investments in the care and maintenance of infrastructure and vehicle fleet pay off and mean true sustainability.
