Rail logistics is the result of the interaction of many experts – our job profiles are just as diverse as logistics itself

Account managers

Our knowledgeable account managers serve as contacts and advisers for a defined set of customers in the chemical and mineral oil industry. They focus on handling customer enquiries and tenders as well as preparing business plans, calculations and offerts. They also analyse and optimise existing transport logistics concepts and develop innovative logistics solutions in cooperation with customers and partners. In addition, they are involved in projects to further develop our rail logistics portfolio.

In addition, they play an active part in developing new logistics concepts and continually optimising processes.
