He has been active in the logistics industry for over 25 years in various management positions. Rodi studied economics and earned his doctorate at the Westphalian University in Münster, Germany.
With CHF 3.7 billion ($3.7 billion) net turnover in 2021 and around 9,700 employees, Kuehne+Nagel's road logistics business unit is one of the world's leading providers of ground transportation. In 2021, the unit handled 24.4 million shipments.
