Kuehne + Nagel will establish a single region for Europe, consolidating management for all countries under one roof with its head office in Hamburg, Germany.
Dr Hansjorg Rodi, who has been responsible for the Central and Eastern European region and managing director for Germany since October 2016, will lead the Europe region.
Holger Ketz, head of airfreight in Central and Eastern Europe, will take over running the German organisation, and management for Germany will be located in Bremen from January 2019.
Kuehne + Nagel chief executive officer, Dr Detlef Trefzger says: “The formation of a European Region is an important step in the development of the whole Kuehne + Nagel Group, enabling us to manage our business even more efficiently and customer-oriented.
“Furthermore, we are pleased that Kuehne + Nagel Germany will have its future head office in Bremen, where Kuehne + Nagel was founded in 1890.”
