Jan-Michael Beyer has been appointed for the role of managing director air and sea logistics in Thailand for Dachser.
Prior to this appointment, Beyer was country manager for Thailand, and head of sales air and seas logistics Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore and Malaysia. In his time in Thailand, Beyer has established relevant services including customised daily airfreight round trips between Europe and Thailand.
Beyer says: “Thailand is a major logistic hub in the region with one of the most developed industries within ASEAN. Being the second largest economy in Southeast Asia, this country has huge potential in many aspects.”
He believes the team can further develop sales from the local network, and also says: “From a logistical point of view, Thailand is a fascinating place. I am looking forward to working closely with our professional teams to combine our experiences and skills to drive our business to the next level.”
Beyer joined Dachser in Germany in 2007 before relocating to Asia where he held several positions. After managing sales activities in Thailand since 2015 he was promoted to head of sales air and sea logistics Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore and Malaysia in 2018.
In his new role, Beyer will report to Edoardo Podesta, managing director air and sea logistics Asia Pacific.
