Messages from the management
Connections of significance
„Digitisation can sound like a cool, rather overused management buzzword, but for me it means something quite different. It is about creating strong connections. For better company processes, to create new opportunities, but also for more closeness and connection between the people who are always there, behind every process.”
Philip W. Herwig, Managing Partner and Chairman of the Global Executive Board
Combining strengths through joint ventures
“Every company has its own special strengths. If two powerful companies combine their core competencies by forming a joint venture, it unlocks exciting new potential – which is just what is happening with Röhlig Penske Logistics. This venture has enabled us to expand impressively in the area of contract logistics and to ensure a higher level of service for our customers.”
Hilton Gray, CEO Air Freight, Sea Freight, Contract Logistics & Sales
Our success has proved us right
“Good business figures are not just a cause for celebration – they also offer confirmation that we are on the right path. After all, customer satisfaction will ultimately determine our longterm success as a company. Our gross sales broke the one billion barrier for the first time in 2021 (1.5 billion euros compared to 0.9 billion euros the year before), making it the most successful business year in our company’s history.”
Dr. Robert Gutsche, Chief Financial Officer
Good service is always personal
„The customer is never just a number for us, but a person with a name, to whom we want to offer the best possible assistance by means of our services. Personal named contacts, offices in over 30 countries, continuous expansion of our global network... and still the family spirit of an owner-operated company. Personal connections help us show our customers how
important they are to us!”
Ulrike Baum, Chief Human Resources Officer
