LOGISTICS giant Kuehne + Nagel says it will establish an integrated Europe region in order to maximise business growth.
Under the umbrella of the Europe region with its head office in Hamburg, K + N is to consolidate management for all European countries.
Dr Hansjörg Rodi, who has been responsible for Central and Eastern Europe and managing director for Germany since October 2016, is to lead the Europe region.
K + N International chief executive Dr Detlef Trefzger was enthusiastic about the plan.
“The formation of a European Region is an important step in the development of the whole Kuehne + Nagel Group, enabling us to manage our business even more efficiently,” Dr Trefzger said.
“Furthermore, we are pleased that Kuehne + Nagel Germany will have its future head office in Bremen, where Kuehne + Nagel was founded in 1890.”
The responsibility for running the German organisation is to be handed over to Mr Holger Ketz, head of airfreight in the Central and Eastern European regions.
Management for Germany is to be located in Bremen as of 1 January, 2019.
