In another move that advances the international presence of OHL, the logistics company is proud to announce the promotion of Fred Loeffel to executive vice president of global account management.
In his new position, Loeffel will serve as a member of the OHL executive committee and focus on several strategic areas including global integrated supply chain solutions, customer care, and business development.

"OHL has provided me the opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of North American supply chain dynamics during the past 14 years," commented Loeffel, "and now I look forward to supporting OHL's global initiatives and acceleration as a leader in supply chain management.
