Duisburg, Germany, 18 Feb 2015 - Logistics service provider STI Freight Management, with headquarters in Duisburg, Germany, has reorganised its international network. STI is bundling its thirteen European branches into four regions: West, East, North and South. As regional directors, Kai Schüttke, Vice President of STI Freight Management, will lead the West/East regions, whilst Bertrand Moyer, Director of STI France, will lead the North/South regions. In addition, the leadership duo will support STI's decentralised European Business Development Team as well as the group's European Road Transport Team. Schüttke sees an opportunity to make road transport solutions even more efficient: “With the leaner organisation, the market knowledge of the individual branches can be better combined.”
The North/South region consists of the three branches in France as well as locations in Italy, Spain, the UK and Sweden. The East/West region is coordinated from STI headquarters in Duisburg, Germany and covers branches in Germany, Poland, Hungary, Latvia and Russia. The regional structure is particularly advantageous for the expansion of temperature-controlled consolidated (LTL) transport. “We benefit from the branches' local know-how and offer customers across Europe consistently high quality standards in LTL transport,” explains Schüttke. The new structure ensures that knowledge and experiences can be shared more effectively across various locations – for example in pharmaceutical logistics. According to Schüttke, “The entire STI Group benefits here from the immense know-how of the STI subsidiary in Sweden. With it, we can offer our customers all over Europe similarly high-quality services in keeping with our motto, 'Taking Quality The Extra Mile'.”
