C.H. Robinson Europe expands its footprint in Germany

C.H. Robinson Europe has developed its presence in Germany after opening a transportation office in Cologne. 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. Winfried Netzer has been appointed to lead the German operations in the new transportation office.

The location and transport infrastructure of Cologne played an important factor in the decision to base there in combination with the large pool of skilled labour in the region. Cologne is a centre of freight transport in Europe and, at the same time, an international hub – making the city attractive for manufacturing and trade.

“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,” said 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.”
