Change of leadership at Hermes International: After more than a decade, Stephan Schiller, former Managing Director of Hermes Europe GmbH and CEO of Hermes International, is taking on a new role at his own request.. In this challenging time for logistics and supply chain management, he is handing over to Henning Udo Goldmann, who has already been with the company as an expert on digitalization topics. We spoke with the previous and the new managing director about the development of the logistics industry, current requirements, shared values and how Hermes International will accompany its customers into a future characterized by transformations.
For more than two years, global developments have been continuously defining new requirements for the organization of goods movements. Procurement and logistics are faced with the task of developing new solutions for current and future challenges. Stephan Schiller, CEO at Hermes International, a business unit of Hermes Germany, explains which steps have now become necessary, why collaboration matters and what the supply chain management of the future should look like.
Many companies are currently struggling with high cost pressures on the supply chain caused by supply constraints, increased freight and storage costs, sharply rising energy prices and persistent inflation. What is needed at this point are efficient processes that can reduce costs, save time and increase productivity. Discussing examples from practice, we explain how companies can work much more efficiently with technologies specifically tailored to the supply chain.
