August 18 - Effective January 1, 2016, Jochen Müller will join the Dachser management team and will take over from Thomas Reuter as chief operations officer of the company's Air & Sea Logistics business on January 1, 2018

Reuter will remain on the company's Executive Board in his role as head of Air & Sea Logistics through the transition period until he retires on December 31, 2017.
