According to the announcement made by C.H. Robinson, the company has added two positions to its global forwarding team in response to an increasing need for transportation services between Europe and Asia.

Oliver Volk has been appointed director of European development, Asia Global Forwarding. Volk joins C.H. Robinson with over 25 years of international experience in freight forwarding. He began his career in 1990 in Munich, Germany, at ITG GmbH where he held a number of roles as air freight manager, assistant branch manager, and sales director. In 2011, Oliver joined CEVA Logistics in China, where he held the position of general manager of their Air Asia Pacific trade lane.

Further to Volk’s appointment, Rajendra Tamil has been appointed route development manager Asia, Europe Global Forwarding.

Prior to FedEx, Rajendra spent several years in Hong Kong, as a route development manager with Kuehne + Nagel and DSV.

Ivo Aris, director of Global Forwarding Europe said of the appointments, “I’m confident the appointments of Oliver and Rajendra will accelerate our growth in the European trade. Although the focus always existed within C.H. Robinson, having strategic employees in both regions positions us to be better prepared and more focused than ever to expand our growth in these regions.”
