New HOYER Manager Named

Dr.-Ing. Roland Pütz to become Director of the Chemilog business unit

Hamburg, 6 May 2014 – Starting May 12, 2014 Dr.-Ing. Roland Pütz (47) will lead and further develop Hamburg logistics provider HOYER’s successful Chemilog business unit.

The Chemilog business unit provides individual transport and logistics solutions throughout Europe to customers from the chemical industry. “When it comes to transporting liquid goods, HOYER is already among the market leaders”, says Dr. Roland Pütz. “One of my goals will be to further develop this market position.

Before switching to HOYER, Dr. Pütz had since 2006 worked for the Imperial Shipping Group, which ships primarily dry goods such as ore and coal, chemical products and gas. His last job with the company was leading its fleet management. He was also a member of the management team of the Imperial Shipping Holding GmbH as well as managing director of the Imperial Shipping Services GmbH.

In his new position as Director of the Chemilog business unit, the 47 year-old will profit from his longstanding experience in the logistics business and his know-how in the transport of dangerous goods. These goods make up about 40 percent of the products transported by the Chemilog business unit. “Already, HOYER’s quality and safety standards are among the industry’s best and they are continuously being developed further”, says Dr. Pütz. “I very much look forward to taking on my new tasks and challenges at HOYER.”
