C.H. Robinson Enters Swiss Marketplace

December 3, 2013

Further expanding their European footprint, C.H. Robinson, one of the world’s largest transportation and logistics companies, has opened a new office in Basel, Switzerland.

Located on the borders of Switzerland, France and Germany, the Basel office employs multi-lingual account managers who will focus on the customer facing aspects of the business including new sales, account management and account operations.

Managing the new office will be Ildiko Gergely, a 13-year transportation industry veteran. Gergely started her C.H. Robinson career in the Syracuse, NY office in 2000 and opened the company’s Budapest, Hungary office in 2002.

“The Basel office represents an opportunity for global companies and supply chain decision makers in the area to see firsthand the value C.H. Robinson can bring to their organization,” said Gergely.

C.H. Robinson established an initial presence in Europe 20 years ago. Since that time, the company has built a network of 52 offices with over 1,000 employees throughout Europe to become one of the leading transportation and logistics companies in the region.

In the last 16 months, C.H. Robinson has named Bryan Foe as president of Europe, Gary York as director of sourcing for Europe and Ivo Aris as director of European global forwarding. In addition, the company acquired Apreo Logistics S.A., and opened offices in Rotterdam, The Netherlands and Istanbul, Turkey.
