Contargo Appoints New Managing Director

Jürgen Albersmann has been promoted from his position of Managing Director of Contargo Neuss GmbH to Managing Director of Contargo GmbH & Co. KG. Starting this month, he will be responsible within the Contargo management for the Group’s own terminal activities, as well as the areas of corporate technics, safety and procurement.

Albersmann started his professional career in 1998 with the Hellmann Worldwide Logistics Group after studying economics. In 2003 he moved to the Deutsche Bahn AG, where he took on the role of Key Account Manager for large companies in the coal and steel industry. In parallel, he also took an Executive MBA course at the University of St. Gallen, subsequently switching to the central strategy department, where his last post was Head of Business Development in India.

From 2009 to 2013 Albersmann occupied an executive position with the Duisburger Hafen AG and then changed to Contargo Neuss, where he was responsible for amalgamating and expanding terminal activities at the Neuss location.

Jürgen Albersmann completes the four-strong management team of Contargo GmbH & Co. KG whose other members, following the departure of Konrad Fischer, are Thomas Löffler, Heinrich Kerstgens and Marcel Hulsker.

Fischer is a qualified logistics specialist that joined the management board of Contargo in 2012. Previous to this he worked in various capacities at several Rhenania locations. In 1987 he took on the management of Rhenania’s Mannheim container terminal and from 1996 held general responsibility for all intermodal activities at the Mannheim location. After giving up his position as Managing Director of the Holding, Fischer will stay on initially as Managing Director of Contargo Rhein-Neckar GmbH.

With an annual transport volume of 2.2 million TEU, Contargo is one of the largest container logistics networks in Europe. Contargo integrates container transport between the western seaports, the German North Sea ports and the European hinterland.
