ALS History

How we started

ALS Warenhandelsgesellschaft GmbH was founded as a subsidiary of Alpina Rheinkontor GmbH. The original services offered, included trade, customs clearance and administration for new companies wishing to establish themselves in the European market. These then expanded into storage organisation and temperature-controlled transport

ALS Warenhandelsgesellschaft GmbH was renamed ALS Alpina Logistic Services GmbH with just 7 employees. The company portfolio extended into the complex customs clearance of food and agricultural products and other industries.

ALS officially opened offices at the Swiss border. The company portfolio again expanded to include neutral customs clearance for industry, trade, transport service providers and fiscal representation.

The founding of the first offices away from the Swiss border were established in the port of Hamburg, Germany and also in Hilden, Germany. ALS Alpina Logistic Services GmbH changed its operating name to ALS Customs Services GmbH, which remains to this day.

ALS Customs Services GmbH was awarded AEO (authorised economic operator) status as one of the first companies to achieve this in Baden-Württemberg.

ALS founded ALS Consulting Services GmbH. With offices in Weil am Rhein and Duisburg, the company handled topics relating to AEO, compliance and customs process management.

ALS Basel obtained the AEO certificate and was one of the first companies in Switzerland to achieve this.

ALS Customs Services GmbH celebrated its 25th anniversary with 10 business sites across Germany, France and Switzerland.

ALS Customs Services expanded its European network and established offices in Antwerp, Belgium and Howald, Luxembourg. It had officially reached 100 employees across the company.
