C.H. Robinson Europe Expands Its Footprint in Germany. The third-party logistics provider now counts 49 strategic locations across 16 countries in Europe.
“Cologne’s central location and its excellent transport infrastructure make it one of the best locations for inbound and outbound logistics – local, nationwide and international,” says Jeroen Eijsink, president, Europe at C.H. Robinson. “We believe this new location and its blend of all transportation modes make it a unique environment with great growth potential.”
Winfried (Win) Netzer, a 30-year industry veteran, has been appointed to lead the German operations in the new transportation office. “I was immediately attracted to the company and its culture when I walked through the doors. As I learned more about the company’s successes and its future growth plans in the region, I instantly knew this was where I wanted to continue my career,” Netzer said.
Eijsink added, “Cologne’s proximity to the largest industrial area in Europe, as well as access to a large pool of talent, has supported our decision to expand our footprint to Cologne. We believe being close to our customers is very important, and the combination of our team and our industry-leading technology enables us to do just that.”
The opening of the Cologne transportation office is the sixth office opening for C.H. Robinson in Germany. Other offices in Germany include freight forwarding offices in Hamburg, Frankfurt, Munich, Stuttgart and Tuttlingen.
