Your specialist for logistics and customs-clearance eastwards


On 1st January 2000 Mr. Hans-Peter Otto is appointed managing director. Under his management the extension of the forwarding business is being consistently continued and pushed ahead.

The forwarding departments that existed at Emmerich and Mülheim (Ruhr) are united at the Duisburg site.


With the beginning of  the year, the company's headquarter was being moved from Emmerich to Forst (Lausitz) in the south of Brandenburg as a result of a strengthened orientation of the company to the Eastern markets.

On 01.04.2001 the staff celebrates the inauguration of the new terminal in Forst (Lausitz). In the immediate vicinity of the motorway A 15  is an area of about 2.500 m² of customs bonded warehouse, 10.000m² of outdoor stock and a parking range for approx. 30 lorries available. Customs authorities have become direct neighbours.

With the enlargement of the European Union there is a second drastic turning-point in the customs sector. The European customs frontiers are further moved to the East, customs clearances at the hitherto border-crossing points disappear without replacement.

However, contrary to many other customs forwarding agents, C. Spaarmann is in a position to keep this traditional section of the company going in the customs offices at Duisburg, Frankfurt/Oder and Forst and even create new offices of clearance at the Polish eastern border.

By the end of the year, the network of offices in Russia was being extended.
