Dachser Air and Sea Logistics has appointed two new regional managing directors.

Tobias Burger has been appointed as managing director of its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) business, while Ralph Riehl will occupy the same position in the Americas.

Burger is currently responsible for the strategic development of the forwarder’s air and sea business as deputy director. Previously he was head of corporate governance.

Burger succeeds Thomas Krüger, who has led the air and sea freight business in the EMEA region since 2016.

Riehl previously worked for Panalpina for more than 30 years, holding management positions in France, Singapore, and the US.

Most recently, Riehl was senior vice president of sales, responsible for all DSV Panalpina sales in North and Latin America.

Riehl assumes the position from Guido Gries, who has led Dachser’s air and sea business in the region since 2012.

“We would like to thank Thomas Krüger and Guido Gries for their many years of dedicated work in the business development and integration of our air and sea freight network, and we wish them all the best for their professional and personal future,” said  Edoardo Podestà, chief operating officer air and sea at Dachser.

“Tobias Burger and Ralph Riehl will provide new impetus for the sustainable and profitable development of Dachser Air & Sea Logistics in their regions through their optimal combination of in-house and external expertise. As a result, they will consistently drive the development of globally integrated, value-added solutions for our customers.”
