Meanwhile, chief legal officer Christoph Hess will assume a position in the legal team at the merged organisation, DSV Panalpina.

Lucas Kuehner, who served as the executive vice president, airfreight at Panalpina, has been appointed as the executive vice president of the charter network and perishables at DSV Air & Sea.

Karl Weyeneth, formerly chief commercial officer, is expected to continue in a senior position at DSV Panalpina.
