DB Schenker has announced that it is restructuring its Nordic business activities by combining operations in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden into one cluster.
The changes will apply from 1 April 2023, with the new organisation being headed by Petteri Nurmi (photographed above).
He will be in charge of an organisation boasting more than 6,000 employees, as well as a total turnover of almost DKK 3 billion.
Nurmi began his career at DB Schenker around 25 years ago, and has served as CEO of DB Schenker in Finland since 2018. The management of the organisation will be composed of experienced managers from DB Schenker’s own unit, who will report directly to Nurmi.
DB Schenker believes the move will pave the way for a successful future and allow it to adapt to a business environment where many multinational customers “already perceive these countries as one integrated Nordic market”.
Nurmi began his career at DB Schenker around 25 years ago, and previously served as CEO of DB Schenker in Finland since 2018.
Commenting on the changes, Helmut Schweighofer, CEO Region Europe for DB Schenker, said:
“With this new structure in the Nordics, we are strengthening DB Schenker’s position on the European and global market, and are thus able to streamline our processes and meet customer expectations better.”
Petteri Nurmi also added:
“With our new strong 'One Nordics’ market position in air, sea and contract logistics, we achieve a lot and can improve our resources to strengthen our market position. In this way, we can work even more efficiently for our customers and live up to to the high expectations placed on us”.
