New Corporate Unit is also bundling the logistics provider s research and development activities
Stefan Hohm, Corporate Solutions, Research & Development
Kempten, February 25, 2016. Dachser has created a new central organizational unit, Corporate Solutions, Research & Development, in order to advance its business with global, industry-specific logistics solutions and bundle its research and development activities. Stefan Hohm, an experienced Dachser manager, will head up this new Corporate Unit. He has led the Logistics Center in Hof for the past seven years.
The 43-year-old Hohm and his team will implement worldwide supply chains for customers from focus industries. The new Corporate Unit will also bundle Dachser s research and development activities and will be working closely with the Corporate Unit Corporate Development & Strategy, as well as with Corporate IT. Hohm will report directly to CEO Bernhard Simon. Responsibilities of the new unit also include new and continuing development of value-added services, which complement (upstream or downstream) transport and warehousing in the standardized Dachser groupage network. This includes dedicated services for special customers, industry-specific value-added services, and premium services associated with deliveries to end customers.
Well-established on the market
Dachser has already established two industry-specific solutions in Europe: Dachser DIY Logistics and Dachser Chem-Logistics, which handle six million shipments annually. Ralf Meistes (DIY Logistics) and Michael Kriegel (Chem-Logistics) will continue to head these two departments, which, however, will be assigned to Corporate Solutions, Research & Development. Dachser is combining a great deal of industry expertise in this unit at the global level as well. For example, Dachser Air & Sea Logistics handles shipments for customers from the automotive, fashion, sports, pharmaceutical, and life sciences industries.
We strive to understand the complex logistics requirements of different industries down to the last detail, develop custom-tailored solutions, and implement them worldwide by way of our effective and efficient standardized networks, says Hohm, Corporate Director, Corporate Solutions, Research & Development. In his 23 years at Dachser, Hohm has proven himself in several management positions, most recently as General Manager of the Logistics Center in Hof, where his responsibilities included integrated contract logistics solutions in the European Logistics and Food Logistics business lines.
Dachser, a family-owned company headquartered in Kempten, Germany, is one of the leading logistics providers. Dachser provides comprehensive transport logistics, warehousing, and customer-specific services in three business fields: Dachser Air & Sea Logistics and Dachser Road Logistics. The latter is divided into two business lines, Dachser European Logistics and Dachser Food Logistics. Comprehensive contract logistics services and industry-specific solutions round out the company s offerings. A seamless shipping network both in Europe and overseas and fully integrated IT systems provide for intelligent logistics solutions worldwide.
With a staff of around 25,000 employees at 437 locations all over the globe, Dachser generated revenue of EUR 5.3 billion in 2014. The logistics provider moved a total of 73.7 million shipments weighing 35.4 million tons. Dachser now has country organizations in 42 countries.

My client is a pioneer in their category across the UK, USA and Australia. They have a passionate, fun-loving brand in one of the world s fastest growing product categories. Founded only 3 years ago, they now have national listings in a number of the Top 6 grocery stores and hundreds more loyal customers across online, retail, wholesale and OOH. The business has gone from strength to strength in the last 12 months, rapidly winning awards and securing listings across the UK thanks to a dedicated and passionate team.
After just nine months they have risen to the top 20 in the Grocery category, with sales in the last four months alone growing by 150%. The next 12 months is set to be just as exciting, with some incredible new NPD projects launching in Spring and Summer 2016.
As a result of this growth, I am now looking for a charismatic, ambitious and results orientated Food Service & Wholesale Sales Manager. You have to be willing to travel the extra distance, get stuck in, love meeting new people and have more personality than your average salesman. The role will entail;
- Maintaining and expanding relationships with existing Wholesale clients.
- Collaborating with the Head of Sales to build the Food Service territory in line with the sales strategy.
- Using an existing network of industry contacts to generate new business.
- Delivering sales presentations to high-level executives.
- Generate data analysis that will feed directly to in-house logistics and finance personnel to inform their forecasts and budget generation.
The team is full of passionate, motivated people and the culture is vibrant and fun. This is a chance to really own your part of the business whilst working closely with the Head of Sales to define and drive the overall direction of the channel. There are no limits, the business is flat structured and in a position to make decisions at lightning speed. Therefore, you will be solely responsible for the amount of responsibility and business you bring on and for your own results. This is a very autonomous position and suits only those who do not shy away from a challenge.
