Juergen Adler (Oct 21)

French logistics provider Geodis has appointed Jürgen Adler (pictured above) as its new head of the automotive market, part of its plans to expand into the vertical.

The 43-year-old joined the company, in Frankfurt, on 1 October, after three years as European regional manager and head of automotive vertical for Expeditors.

Prior to that he spent nearly eight years as director of global automotive client solutions at DSV, having worked for UTi before it was acquired by the Danish 3PL. Altogether, he has over 25 years’ experience in automotive logistics.

“His aim will be to address the specific expectations of the sector, which is currently facing significant structural changes as well as ongoing supply chain disruptions, in a sector where ‘just-in-time’ is a standard,” said Geodis.

Philippe de Carné, executive VP of business development, innovation & CSR, explained: “Faced with the increasingly rapid pace of change in the field of new mobility, Jürgen will draw on his experience to help Geodis customers in the automotive sector manage their supply chains on a global scale, taking account of the challenges of flexibility and cost reduction.”

Mr Adler added: “I am delighted to be joining Geodis, where I will be able to contribute to developing solutions for the automotive market. Both manufacturers and suppliers need a reliable logistics partner who can bridge the visibility gap through its global end-to-end solutions.”
