Attendees come to JOC’s TPM to join the 2,000+ attendees to find new customers, nurture existing relationships and more. They hear the latest market forecasts, analysis, expert opinion and more concerning container shipping, freight rates, labor issues and more. If you want to meet with shippers, carriers, port officials, 3PLs, freight forwarders, government officials, and more, then you must be here. That’s why DB Schenker is at this leading industry event.
In fact, we’re not just at this event, Jochen Thewes, Chairman of the Board of Managemen Schenker AG, is a keynote speaker at JOC’s TPM 2018. By 2020 he wants the DB Schenker business to attain top positions in target markets, and become the industry’s top employer and “eco-pioneer.” Aiming to fulfill the first of these goals, Thewes told the French business media outlet Les Echos that the company would invest $240 million to become the top road and air logistics player in France, with the aim of toppling Paris-based Geodis. The aggressive approach comes as Thewes anticipates a transformation of the ocean market into something “completely different 18 months to two years from now,” following recent carrier consolidation.
In his opening keynote speech at TPM 2018 on March 4-7 in Long Beach, Thewes, who has worked in Brazil, Vietnam, China, Hong Kong, New York, and Singapore among other locations, will discuss his perspective and vision regarding global ocean- and air-based supply chains
At DB Schenker, we’re committed to providing innovative supply chain solutions that challenge the status quo. As a global industry leader with more than 140 years of logistics experience, we’re proud to support industry and trade in the global exchange of goods.
