Transporeon, a leading Transportation Management Platform, has appointed David Landau as Chief Network and Strategy Officer. Landau, described as a savvy supply chain expert, shares Transporeon’s mission to bring transportation in sync with the world and envisions the role of an intelligent platform acting as the operating system of large transportation networks in the cloud.
Landau will be instrumental in accelerating the growth of Transporeon’s powerful global freight network of 1,400+ shippers and 145,000+ carriers, creating a vibrant ecosystem and helping shippers, load recipients, service providers, freight forwarders and carriers connect, communicate, collaborate and share data to realise operational benefits, new business opportunities, unlock data value and reduce carbon emissions.
“I am thrilled to welcome David to our Transporeon family,” comments Stephan Sieber, CEO of Transporeon. “With his great experience David is a perfect addition to the Transporeon team. I am delighted that he decided to join us and will work with our team to further drive our mission of bringing transportation in sync with the world.”
Landau joins Transporeon with extensive experience at companies such as Manhattan Associates, Cloud Logistics and, most recently, serving as Chief Product Officer at BluJay Solutions.
Landau adds: “I’ve always admired the team, mission and success of Transporeon. Transportation is, after all, an ecosystem. Transporeon has developed one of the largest logistics networks in the world, which gives it unparalleled connectivity, data and capabilities. To be part of the team that will lead the continued growth of the ecosystem to the benefit of shippers, logistics service providers and the environment is a true honour.”
David Landau replaces Thomas Einsiedler, who is moving on to explore new endeavours after 10 years of dedicated leadership at Transporeon. Landau and Einsiedler will ensure a smooth handover in the coming months. For the first quarter of 2023, Einsiedler will drive selected strategic projects for Transporeon.
“Thomas’s achievements for our product and network organisation deserve my fullest appreciation and great thanks. Up until his departure he will remain an important contributor to our success, and I am looking forward to continuing my work with him”, adds Sieber.
