Schenker reorganises

December 9 - Effective January 1, 2017, the Management Board of Schenker AG will be reorganised.

The most important changes will include consolidating the Air and Ocean Freight and Land Transport Board Divisions to create a new division named Freight (COO), which will be headed by Ewald Kaiser, currently a member of the Management Board For Land Transport.

The company says that the aim is to tie these three product areas closer together to quickly improve integrated transport products and services and make better use of growth potential.

A new organisational unit named Global Land Transport will also be created within this board division and will standardise and promote the development of land transport outside Europe.

A new division called Commercial DB Schenker (CCO) and Contract Logistics, headed by Tom Schmitt, will be created. For the first time, Key Account Management/Sales and Marketing will be interconnected at the Management Board level.

A personnel change has also been made at Schenker AG's largest business region. On 1 December 2016, Reiner Heiken (54) assumed the role of ceo of Region Europe, replacing Ewald Kaiser in this function. Heiken served most recently as chairman of the Management Board at Kühne & Nagel in Hamburg.
