Philosophy, facts & figures

Since the founding in 1945 by Mr Julius Bay and the takeover in 1975 by the Schaaf family, Bay has transformed from a typicel transportation company into a logistics company. And this development is still ongoing. Our clients not only expect carriage services, but also consulting and approaches for new concepts in logistics. To find an optimized approach for our clients, we take a look into all possible carriage possibilities such as tracks, inland-waters, short-sea or the street at the european zone.


As independent family-manages company, we follow the philosophy to be the experienced, financial healthy and the reponsible service-partner for our clients working in the chemical industry. We carry typical virtues, like mid-sized companys do.

  • We are hugely quality-oriented
  • We provide the highest flexibility
  • We take care for good prices
Paired and extended by a good network with selected and certified partners, we increased our performance.

  • We can solve fluctuations better and with a high flexibility
  • We offer an extensive carriage, Europe-wide
  • We take care for good prices
It is our daily duty to:

  • be better in quality
  • be reliable in carriage
  • be open and friendly in contact
