Dachser has appointed Jochen Müller as its new chief operations officer of air and sea logistics.
According to Dachser, Müller replaces Thomas Reuter, who retired at the end of 2017 after 39 years at the company.
Müller joined Dachser on October 1, 2016 to prepare for his duties as COO and is a member of the executive board. His core 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.
“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,” said Bernhard Simon, CEO of Dachser.
Müller joined the board of Schenker Deutschland AG in 2011, where he was responsible for the Central Europe air freight region as well as sales and logistics for global relocations, trade fairs, and sports events. He was previously CEO of Schenker’s British subsidiary with responsibility for land, sea and air freight as well as the trade fair business.
Reuter joined Dachser in 1978 and became a member of the executive board from 2006. He plans to continue serving the company in an advisory capacity and will retain his seat on the board of The WACO System. He will also represent Dachser’s interests in the Dachser joint ventures Jet-Speed GmbH and NNR + Dachser GmbH, according to Dachser.
