Jochen Muller has taken up the role of chief operations officer (COO) for Dachser Air & Sea Logistics, replacing Thomas Reuter, who is retiring.
Muller, who was born in 1964 in the German city of Worms, took up the role on 1 January 2018, will continue to work with Reuter, having joined Dachser on 1 October 2016 to prepare for his duties as COO.
His duties include the further expansion of the intercontinental air and sea freight network and the connection of this network with the European road network in order to add value for customers through intermodal logistics.
Muller joined the board of Schenker Deutschland in 2011 where he was responsible for the Central Europe airfreight region as well as sales for air and sea, and logistics for global relocations, trade fairs and sports events.
Prior to that, he was chief executive officer (CEO) of Schenker’s UK subsidiary with responsibility for land, sea and airfreight as well as the trade fair business.
Dachser CEO, Bernhard Simon says: “Jochen Müller has immersed himself in our corporate structures, and now has a comprehensive understanding of our business processes and the challenges we face on an international level.”
Reuter joined Dachser in 1978, becoming a member of the executive board at the start of 2006, where he was a driving force in helping to develop international business, building up a global network of air and sea freight locations.
He plans to continue serving the company in an advisory capacity, but will turn his attentions to other matters including his seat on the board of The WACO System, and will represent Dachser’s interests in the joint ventures Jet-Speed and NNR + Dachser.
