Executive Briefings

Group Formed to Promote Interests of Supply Chain Industry in European Union

The European Union recently convened in Brussels the first meeting of the High Level Group on Logistics, a 14-member assemblage devoted to advancing European transport policy measures, headed by European Commission vice president Siim Kallas.

This inaugural gathering was to include discussion about transport bottlenecks, creating a sound business environment and strengthening the bonds between the EC and the supply-chain industry. The group includes Frank Appel, CEO of Deutsche Post DHL; Hjoerdis Stahl, executive vice president of LUXAIR Cargo; and Marie-Christine Lombard, CEO of TNT Express. Other members include academics and supply-chain executives.

The main purpose of the High Level Group, Kallas said, is to recognize the importance of logistics to the EU economy and work to promote supply chain issues. "Logistics is a crucial business for the EU," he said. "It is an inseparable part of the European transport policy and major contributor to business success. It is therefore paramount that we discuss the challenges ahead together with the stakeholders in order to fully unlock the potential of the European logistics and freight transport sector."
