Our freight forwarding services include not only standardized transports, but also multimodal and sector-specific solutions as well as individualized industrial projects.

    TPM23 CEO Series: A Conversation With DHL Global Forwarding's, Tim Scharwath

    As CEO of DHL Global Forwarding, part of Deutsche Post DHL Group, Tim Scharwath is responsible for a vast global network of air, ocean, and road freight services, as well as 42,000 employees. This places him in a great position to take stock of a freight transportation industry that has been through a chaotic three-year period since COVID-19 was declared as a pandemic. But will supply chains ever get back to some semblance of “normal” or has the international transportation of cargo changed forever, and how do shippers and their service providers build more resilience into supply lines at a time of operational and economic uncertainty? What about rising geopolitical risk, sourcing shifts, and sustainability? In this one-on-one discussion, Tim will tackle the growing set of issues facing cargo owners on the world's increasingly complex and volatile trade lanes.
