With more than 30 years’ experience in the freight forwarding and shipping industry, Roehl brings a key focus on oceanfreight and project logistics management to Cologne-headquartered MBS Logistics.

Most recently, Roehl served as ceo at logistics provider Natco/Trans Global Projects in Switzerland. Prior to that, he held corporate management positions at Kuehne + Nagel International, Geis Cargo, Bolloré Logistics, Agility Logistics, and Hansa Heavy Lift

Together with the company’s current executive leadership members, Andreas Janetzko and Daniel Steckel, Roehl will work to further increase MBS’s global presence, develop its activities in Asian and European markets (particularly Switzerland and Germany), and grow the company’s project logistics service offering.

“Together with MBS Holding’s two other shareholders, Johannes Steckel and Georg Ludwig, I would like to warmly welcome Joerg to MBS,” said Bernd Wilkes, founder and shareholder of MBS. “We are very pleased to bring Joerg into our company at a time when we are focused on international expansion as well as investment in future product lines.” 

Roehl, who takes on his new role on February 1, 2023, added: “I am excited to work together to advance MBS Logistics’ core competencies, namely air and sea freight. Furthermore, I see great opportunities for the company to focus on the project logistics sector as well as increase investments in the Swiss and Asian logistics markets, regions where I have been able to gain many years of experience.”
