The key data behind our success

The secret to our success lies in the beginnings of GO!. Established in 1984 as Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Kurierdienste, today GO! is the quality leader for SMEs in the KEP sector in Germany. The network concept has characterised our business activity right from the outset.

The individual GO! stations work largely independently; this provides them the latitude they need to respond flexibly to local conditions and to adapt to the individual needs of their customers. The GO! head office in Bonn co-ordinates the processes in the far-flung network and ensures uniform adherence to high quality standards .
