DB Schenker started the year with new leadership announcements, beginning with appointing Niklas Wilmking to the Global Board of Management for Contract Logistics and Supply Chain Management.

Wilmking has a PhD in logistics and has been with DB Schenker for more than 20 years, holding several management positions including Executive Vice President Global Air Freight. He’s had key roles in Germany and Asia, with his last role being CEO for Asia Pacific.
