New location in the north
We are pleased to announce that we have opened our first German branch in the great port metropolis of Hamburg. The Hanseatic city is, in many ways, the perfect location to further advance our digital revolution in the logistics industry.
Hamburg is not called the “gateway to the world” for nothing: the logistics capital boasts one of the largest transshipment ports in the world. Not only classic freight forwarders and shipping companies such as Hapag-Lloyd and Kühne + Nagel are headquartered here, many innovative start-ups from the rapidly growing logistics tech scene call Hamburg their home, enriching the already impressive media location on the Elbe river. Germany’s biggest publishers, the “Deutsche Presse-Agentur” (German Press Agency) and several TV stations are based in Hamburg, while tech giants such as Google, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat have their German headquarters or branches in the Hanseatic city.
We plan to focus on sales, marketing, partner management and innovation management in Hamburg. We expect the logistics metropolis in the north to provide us with unique access to the job market and its up-and-coming talent, thanks to its local universities such as the Kühne Logistics University, among others: We’re looking forward to the many talented new people who want to help us turn logistics upside down in Hamburg and make it fit for the digital future!
