Osterwald has worked internationally in leadership roles in the logistics industry for over 20 years.

He joins Crane Worldwide to “drive future growth and development of both the freight forwarding and contract logistics footprint in Germany”.

Meanwhile, Christian Nielitz, formerly country manager of Germany, has been promoted to director of airfreight Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and “will continue to build on the growth in service portfolio and air cargo volumes to and from the region”.

Alexandros Kotarakos has also recently joined the Crane Worldwide team to lead the airfreight team in Germany and procurement within the market.

“Kotarakos has strong relationships with the airlines and significant experience in creative solution design,” the company said.

“Adding further supply chain expertise with established relationships will drive continuous improvement and progress for our clients.”
