Penske Logistics has appointed Bob Black (pictured) as its managing director for Mexico, replacing Alejandro “Alex” Graniewicz, who has left the company. Black’s responsibilities will include overseeing operations and leading business growth and development for Penske in the region.

Black has worked with Penske Logistics for 20 years and moves from his role as general manager, based in Reading, Pennsylvania, where he led a team dealing in automotive and retail accounts. According to Penske he has headed several start-up operations for the company, including a fresh channel cross-dock. He has also been a distribution centre management product line manager.

”We’re very pleased to appoint Bob to lead our ever-expanding operations in Mexico,” said Bill Scroggie, Penske Logistics senior vice-president of international operations. “He has extensive experience with virtually every facet of the supply chain.”

Penske Logistics provides a variety of services to shippers in Mexico, including cross-border shipments, transport management, distribution centre and warehouse management.

At this week’s Automotive Logistics Mexico conference in Mexico City, Stacy Schlachter, vice-president of enterprise accounts at Penske Logistics will join Toyota’s Eliel Cole, production control general manager at carmaker’s Guanajuato plant, to present a case study on developing adaptive logistics partnerships.
