December 3rd, 1898 — June 24th, 1971

On January 1, 1945, Adolf Lamprecht created Lamprecht Transport. On August 17th of that year, in a shipment that was the first of its kind, a convoy of trucks transported 90 tons of fresh fish from Denmark to Basel, Switzerland through war-torn Germany. This event firmly established the capability and future of Lamprecht Transport.

Presented on this day, the 24th of February 2018, American Lamprecht Transport honors Mr. Adolf Lamprecht Sr., founder of Lamprecht Transport and American Lamprecht. Far beyond his own expectations, the company he created would grow to become a world-renowned international freight forwarder, employing hundreds of personnel from around the world. It is through the foundation he created, and his principles and values, that we gratefully recognize and carry on his legacy.

Over 70 Years of Lamprecht History

Many of the films you are about to see that are a part of the Lamprecht Museum were created by American Lamprecht Employees on their own time. These individuals are non-professionals in the film industry with no prior experience in filmmaking. What you are about to experience is a testament to the company’s goodwill by its employees. In its essence, it is a gift from American Lamprecht to the Lamprecht Museum. Hope you enjoy!


The Boy from Basel is a story about a 17-year-old boy’s accent in a company from moving boxes in a warehouse to becoming president and member of the board of directors in a growing company. A celebration was held honoring 40 years with American Lamprecht, …  48 Years with the Lamprecht Transport World Wide Organization, and his birthday.  Congratulations Hans Peter Widmer.

The Lamprecht Way

 I call American Lamprecht to ship it just so I can say: “Basel to Chicago, Zurich to L.A., Texas to Geneva Or New York to anyplace. I move my goods with Lamprecht because I know it’s the only way.” ♫
