Freight forwarder Panalpina has created a new supply chain solutions entity that will aim to create more efficient end-to-end transport operations for customers.

The supply chain solutions business will be led by Hans Elmegaard in the role of global head of Supply Chain Solutions, reporting to Karl Weyeneth, chief commercial officer, who is a member of the executive board.

The company said it would expand its global and regional teams covering supply chains in the coming months.

“The new organizational structure allows us to be even more customer-centric and better seize the many untapped opportunities that lie in the provision of end-to-end solutions across key industries,” said Weyeneth.

Elmegaard added: “Not only do we strive to build more efficient and cost-effective supply chains for our customers, but supply chains that actually support their business models. It’s about turning supply chains into a competitive advantage.”

Panalpina’s Supply Chain Solutions experts are represented on the global and regional level in their capacity as solution developers, supply chain analysts and as solution designers and engineers.
