Freight and logistics service provider, DB Schenker, has appointed Rob Connoley as head of New Zealand’s operations.

Based in Auckland, Connoley has a freight forwarding career that has spanned 19 years and has been responsible for national operations including ocean freight, air freight and domestic cross-dock distribution.

“We are pleased to have Rob join our team where he can use his outstanding knowledge and experience with the New Zealand market to guide DB Schenker’s growth and customer service focus in the region,” said CEO, DB Schenker Australia and New Zealand Cluster, Craig Davidson.

Connoley said there is huge potential in the New Zealand freight and logistics market, and he is ready to meaningfully contribute to DB Schenker’s operations in New Zealand.
