Our development


Customs agency for over 30 years: Porath Customs Agents is your leading customs agency.

From logistics partner to your leading customs agency.

The forwarding company starts growing quickly from the first day Jürgen Porath founded it in 1985 in Hamburg’s historic warehouse district. The young forwarding company discovers its core strength and starts specializing its business in customs clearance. Quite successfully, for only one year later it moves into its new location at Zollamt Brooktor. The number of employees grows and in 1991 another move to Hamburg-Waltershof is necessary.

In 1996 Thorsten Porath, son and professional forwarding agent, is named the new managing director – keeping the company completely in the family. The now sole owner and managing director takes Porath on an international course: introduces the first air freight location at the Frankfurt Airport, opens another location in Bremerhaven and due to high demand, expands the company to the harbor city of Gdynia (Poland) in 2011 and to Rotterdam in 2013. The newest location in Zielona Góra was added in 2016.
