German start-up InstaFreight has strengthened its management team, appointing Martin Leopold (above) to the new position of chief financial officer.

The 54-year-old has joined after a five-year stint as chief sales officer of DHL Freight, the German giant’s road freight arm. Prior to that, he spent three years as DHL Freight’s CFO.

“My decision to join InstaFreight is associated with my desire to work at a dynamically growing scale-up,” he said.

“The goals will be securing well-established corporate structures and creating innovative new ones. InstaFreight started with the ambition of accelerating digitalisation in European road freight transport and building a leading digital logistics provider in Europe,” he added.

Philipp Ortwein, MD and co-founder of InstaFreight, added: “With Martin joining us, we succeed in taking another major step in our development. With his know-how and leadership skills, we at InstaFreight are striving to continue and expand the course that has made us one of the fastest-growing road freight logistics service providers in Europe.”
