Röhlig to open in Canada

Röhlig Logistics has expanded its global network with a new subsidiary in Toronto, Canada.

“Canada is the world’s tenth largest economy, relying heavily on its abundant natural resources,” said CEO Sea Freight, Air Freight, Contract Logistics & Sales, Hylton Gray. “Moreover, the nation boasts a thriving services sector, a well-established manufacturing industry and a steadfast dedication to fostering innovation and technological advancements.”

Canada has established a wide array of free trade agreements, however, the United States remains its largest trading partner. Given the strong ties between the two countries, Röhlig Canada will be affiliated with Röhlig USA under the responsibility of Rafael Ueltschi, CEO at Röhlig USA.

“The opening of our Canadian subsidiary significantly strengthens our presence in North America. As Canada’s economic powerhouse, Toronto is an ideal starting point for our expansion into the country,” he said.

Röhlig has appointed Jan Dreyer as General Manager for Canada. Dreyer was, most recently, Regional Vice President Central Canada at Kühne+Nagel.

“With operational excellence, highly skilled colleagues and a focus on innovation, we will take customer service and global client relationships to the next level,” Dreyer said. “We are looking forward to growing with our customers – in Canada and beyond.”
