Eric Herman to support GEODIS contract logistics

Eric Herman is to be Regional Managing Director, Contract Logistics in GEODIS’ Asia-Pacific Region.

Herman has been in logistics for 25 years and was Senior Consultant at CBRE Group’s Supply Chain Advisory Asia. Previously he worked at Puma Energy in Indonesia and had several roles at ocean carrier Maersk. His experience in supply chain strategy operations and capacity assessments, as well as network and facility design will benefit his new role at GEODIS.

In welcoming Eric, GEODIS APAC Regional President and CEO, Onno Boots said, “Eric has an in-depth Asia-Pacific market knowledge of e-commerce trends, last-mile networks and next generation warehouse designs. Through his leadership, I see the strengthening of our team’s capability and commercial approach. He will lead an accelerated growth strategy, by guiding our investments in Contract Logistics across the Region, expanding GEODIS’ footprint and implementing state of the art technology.”

Herman commented: “COVID-19 and the recent Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership trade pact, formalizing the world’s biggest trade deal, will greatly accelerate the need for robust supply chains that connect clients across the APAC region and beyond. Clients must adapt to rapid upticks in volumes. Major brands with increasing e-commerce businesses are desperate to retain their market share and get products to their end customers quicker than ever before.”
