Mission & values

Our business relationships are built on trust and continuity

When Henning Harders set up our company in 1987, he ran the business by one simple principle: “Be passionate, make friends and help people. Success will look after itself.” This principle set us on course to become one of Australia’s most successful and trusted providers of international logistics services.

Henning’s thinking is still relevant for us today. It is the inspiration behind our Mission and Values, which were jointly developed by the colleagues at Henning Harders.

A short introduction of our company values and our company vision

Our Company Mission

We provide our clients with the best personalised international supply chain.

This mission describes what Henning Harders stands for and what our clients can expect from us. It defines our common goal and our commitment to stakeholders, including customers, employees, suppliers and communities. Each and every time you interact with us, we aim to deliver on this promise.

Our Company Values

Our Values explain how we do things on a daily basis, they guide our decision making and describe how we engage with customers, colleagues and suppliers. Everybody at Henning Harders – whether they work in the Warehouse or in Management – follows those values. For our clients, this means that we are constantly striving to make their life easier. They can rely on our high level of service, our expertise and our care, which gives our clients complete peace of mind and allows them to focus on their core business – without having to worry about supply chain issues.

Mutual Success

It all starts with teamwork and positive working relationships. We combine our efforts for the benefit of each employee, the company and our customers. We communicate openly, listen closely to the needs of our customers and respond with exceptional service.


We ask ourselves “why not” and – even if challenges might be complex – we respond with solutions. We challenge the status quo for superior outcomes and we share our ideas and solutions.

Driven by Passion

We share a passion and a positive “can do” attitude, which exceeds expectations. At Henning Harders, we rely on responsibility and proud ownership. Taking ownership has nothing to do with education, rank or position – each team member’s contribution matters and it’s their commitment that makes the difference.

The Extra Mile

We learn about our customers’ business and we exceed expectations by going the extra mile. We provide an exceptional level of care and competence, which makes us the trusted partner for our customers.

Disciplined Approach

We understand that delivering successful results consistently requires a disciplined approach, persistence and a high level of professionalism. We do as we promise and we are reliable at all times.
