About us

Our vision and mission at zipmend

Exciting work, fast implementation and a cool working atmosphere - that's us at zipmend. Our courier transports are more than just deliveries, they are a lifesaver in times of need for many customers. With us, you can not only do a job, but also create real added value.
We are open to innovative ideas that improve the customer experience and drive the company's success.

Focus on the team

Diverse talents & strong community

Our team is made up of individual personalities who together form a strong unit. We are calm and quick on the uptake, organised and logical thinkers. We create a positive atmosphere by being polite and helpful. We master challenges with determination and a solution-orientated approach. We are characterised by initiative and the courage to break new ground. In short, we are a team that not only works together, but is also there for each other. We value calmness and friendliness, are innovative and always open to new ideas.
Questions are part of our everyday work - we want to understand, learn and constantly improve.
Timm Trede
Founder/CEO
Hi, I’m Timm. I founded zipmend in 2015. Prior to that, I spent 10 years working as a consultant for logistics companies. I obtained my diploma in business administration at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. I am happy whenever we are able to help our customers in tricky situations. In my spare time, I like to watch basketball, jog and take care of my vodka collection.
Andrew Byrne
Head of Dispatch
Hello, my name is Andrew. I’m originally from the UK and have a bachelor’s degree in Germanic studies. I am a dispatcher out of passion and always have on ear on the phone – maybe we will talk to each other soon. In my free time, I take flying lessons and fly through the air on small-engined aircraft. My goal is to obtain a pilot’s license and later maybe my own small plane.
