Schenker India has appointed Vishal Sharma as its new chief executive.

Mr Sharma’s appointment sees him succeed Oliver Bohm, who will be moving on to become DB Schenker’s chief commercial officer in the Europe region. He will report to  Ditlev Blicher, CEO for the Asia Pacific region.

Schenker India will benefit from Mr Sharma’s experience from 17 years with Maersk, during which time he held various leadership roles across Asia and Europe. He followed that with a job as CEO of Gateway Rail Freight in India, most recently becoming CEO of Damco for India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, a role he held for four years.

He described Schenker India as a “global leader” in logistics and supply chain management, adding that he was “honoured” to be joining Schenker.

“These are exciting times ahead, especially in the India logistics market,” he continued.

“I’m looking forward to engaging with customers across the various industries, to develop solutions for enabling and transforming supply chains across India and the world.”
