Gebrüder Weiss picks new project cargo operations executive
International transport and logistics company, Gebrüder Weiss, has further expanded its project transportation services out of its Houston, Texas office. To lead the charge, the company has appointed Torge Runge as its Senior Operations Manager of Industrial Projects and Energy Transport Solutions – in North America.
Runge has been tasked with overseeing all project cargo operations and related activities, with his 25 years of extensive industry experience coming in handy. Runge will report to fellow industry veteran Michael Ruediger, Director of Industrial Projects and Energy Transport Solutions, in North America, who took that position less than a year ago.
The pair are based in the Houston office, a Gebrüder Weiss location dedicated to specialized projects and project transportation. Both Runge and Ruediger are subject matter experts in vessel, barge and aircraft chartering, complex inland transportation requirements, and site work.
“We are thrilled to have Torge join the project team,” said Mark McCullough, CEO of Gebrüder Weiss North America. “The calibre of his leadership abilities and operational expertise is second to none, and his vast experience will further enhance the tailor-made logistics solutions and project execution capabilities we provide to our clients.”
The company is putting a great focus on anticipating industry trends and customer needs and has expanded North American services to optimise regional trade hubs and accommodate demand for nearshoring. In June of 2023, the company opened its new location in Laredo, Texas, the largest inland port in North America.
