Expansion in the EU: New Branch in Düsseldorf, Germany

Worldwide Logistics Group, an integrated logistics provider, announced the opening of a branch office in Düsseldorf, its second office in Germany.

Located in the heart of Europe, Germany’s central geographic positioning makes it an optimal location for foreign shippers to successfully enter European markets.

With an office already located in Stuttgart, Germany, expanding to Düsseldorf allows Worldwide Logistics Group to better service its European customers, especially in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.

“The new office is a door opener to foreign trade in Europe,” explained Thomas Wolf who will lead the Düsseldorf office. “Germany offers convenient access to the EU’s 500 million consumers.”

Wolf has 20 years of experience in logistics including various positions held at Fracht AG. He brings expertise in sales, management and structural design of transport routes and modes of transportation.

“We are thrilled that Thomas is joining the Worldwide Logistics Group team,” said Daniel Jakob, Managing Director of Worldwide Logistics Group in Germany. “As the company grows domestically and globally, we need to continue to finesse our processes and transport structures. Thomas brings these skills to the table.”

The office is a fully integrated provider of all of the Worldwide Logistics Group’s services but will focus on sea freight logistics supporting customers in several industries including automotive, machinery and equipment manufacturing, medical devices and clothing and textile.

“By centralizing our sea freight support, we can synergize efficiency and decision making,” explained Tom Peacock, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Logistics Group. “The end result is a direct benefit for our customers because we can speed up the supply chain flow.”

The Düsselforf office marks the 37th branch location for Worldwide Logistics Group with offices in North America, Europe, Asia, Middle East and Africa.
