Dr. Tobias Burger becomes COO Air & Sea Logistics at Dachser

Since the turn of the year, Dr. Tobias Burger (46) has been the new Chief Operations Officer (COO) Air & Sea Logistics and a member of the Executive Board at logistics provider Dachser. He has the focus on growth in global markets and integrated groupage transport.

The former Deputy Director Air & Sea Logistics replaces Edoardo Podestà (61), who has retired from active professional life after a career at Dachser spanning more than 20 years, the last four of which he spent leading the air and sea freight business.

Burger holds a doctorate in business administration, and he began his career as a strategy consultant at Siemens Management Consulting. He joined Dachser in 2009. After working in controlling and strategy development, he was given responsibility for Corporate Governance. At that time, he was already overseeing the strategic development of the global air and sea freight network. Burger was appointed Deputy Director Air & Sea Logistics in 2019, becoming Podestà’s right-hand man. During this time, he was initially global sales manager for the air and sea freight business. In 2021 and 2022, Burger led the ASL EMEA business unit’s operations as Managing Director with great success.
