"We are extremely happy John accepted the task of running the logistics business.

John Allan, CEO of the new logistics division, said, "I am flattered to have been offered a position on the Management Board and am looking forward to working with my new colleagues. Working together we are going to grow not just the biggest, but the best and most capable global logistics provider."

Appel will assume responsibility for the newly created Global Corporate Services Corporate Division, which bundles group-wide global internal service functions such as procurement, legal, IT, real estate and finance operations. In addition, he will take over responsibility for Global Customer Solutions.
