With Thomas Reuter as COO, Air & Sea Logistics connects the executive unit Air & Sea Logistics to the worldwide procurement markets and consumers. It thus serves the entire global supply chains and provides the prerequisites for DACHSER to continuously further additional expansions in a worldwide context as well.

Thomas Reuter, born in 1957; after his training to become a freight forwarding specialist, absolved the advanced training program at the German Academy of Foreign Trade and Transport (DAV) in Bremen, sponsored by DACHSER, where he qualified as a graduate in transport management and operations. Since 1978, he has been a constant in the DACHSER family. He initially proved himself in his position as a customer consultant in the "local traffic" department at the branch in Mannheim. "In this job, I learned the business from ground up," remembers Thomas Reuter.

He began his career in DACHSER’s foreign operations in 1982, as deputy manager of the export/import department for Western Europe. Beginning in 1984, he managed the export department; one year later - at the age of 28 - he was named an authorized officer. From 1986 to 1990, Thomas Reuter was responsible for all western European overland freight services of the branch.

After four years with the air freight division at the Frankfurt airport, he was appointed as the manager of DACHSER's German air freight operations, which at that time had 18 locations and 170 employees. With the consolidation of air and sea freight activities in 1996, Reuter was promoted to Europe Director of all European branches. Since 2002, he has also been the managing director of Jet-Speed GmbH, a joint venture with a leading air and sea freight provider that serves routes to and from Greater China. Thomas Reuter was appointed to the DACHSER management the beginning of 2006.
