Ceva Logistics’ chief operating officer (COO) for Global Airfreight, Michael Schaecher (left), has taken on additional responsibility for the company’s Global Oceanfreight business following the departure of Dominik Tichelkamp, who has left the company.

Schaecher joined Ceva in April of this year and brings extensive freight management experience to the company. He has previously worked with companies including DHL Global Forwarding, Star Broker and Panalpina World Transport.

Ceva would not comment on the reasons behind Tichelkamp’s departure. He joined the company as head of Global Oceanfreight in early 2011 moving from Panalpina where he was chief product and procurement officer. This followed a 15-year tenure with VW Group where he held various positions within the company’s transport and logistics division, including assignments to Mexico and Hungary.
