"The thoroughly prepared handover at the top of the Air & Sea Logistics business field reflects the targeted and long-term oriented further development of our intercontinental network," says Bernhard Simon, Chairman, Supervisory Board, Dachser. "Edoardo Podestà has built up our Asian business since 2003 and has made a significant contribution to the growth of our company over the past four years as COO Air & Sea Logistics. With Tobias Burger, we now have an experienced logistics strategist at the helm of our Air & Sea Logistics organisation who has a deep and holistic understanding of the complex challenges facing the global logistics markets now and in the future."

Burkhard Eling, CEO, Dachser adds: "We are convinced that the main impetus for our future growth will come from our business in Asia and the Americas. By closely interlinking intercontinental transport with our efficient European overland transport network, we want to offer our customers a comprehensive solution for groupage services around the world. This global Groupage offering, delivered by an integrated network with comprehensive contract logistics capabilities, definitely calls for a powerful air and sea freight organisation with a global presence.”
