German entrepreneur who introduced the mail order and parcel delivery service in Germany as early as 1860. He expanded the colonial goods trade to include an emigration agency, an insurance agency and a transatlantic mail order business - long before Neckermann and Otto.
His agency looked after Swabian emigrants to the USA, took care of all the formalities, organized the journey to the overseas ports in Germany and Holland and supplied the emigrants in the USA with domestic products from Swabia and Germany through his mail order business. He also acquired the salt monopoly for part of the Kingdom of Württemberg.
In 1846 he married Sophie Dallinger (nee Lust). Their two sons, Karl Vollmöller and Robert Vollmöller, had successful careers. Karl became a professor of Romance languages; Robert founded Vollmoeller AG. Rudolf Vollmöller died of a heart attack on 22 June 1868 at the age of 49 in Ilsfeld.
