About us – Andreas Wöhler introduces himself
The trained freight forwarding agent Andreas Wöhler has been working as a project manager at Züst & Bachmeier since 2000 and has been managing the Nuremberg branch since July 2021. In a short interview, he introduces himself and tells us about future goals for our branch in Nuremberg.
Mr. Wöhler, how did you get into large-scale and heavy-duty logistics?
“The topic has been with me since my apprenticeship. I was introduced to project logistics there, and since then I have specialized in precisely that. I started at another haulage company and have been part of Züst & Bachmeier Project for over 21 years. ”
That is a long time. What do you value most about your work at Züst & Bachmeier?
“First of all, we are a closely-knit team of long-term employees who can master the most challenging tasks together. In addition, the projects are very varied – whether it is the special dimensions or the weights of a cargo, specific requirements of the transport or the ratios. We often must be on site for meetings or to support larger projects. As a result, we get to learn about different cultures and people, which makes the work even more interesting. For me, a special highlight was the organization and support of the transport of power plant components to Sudan and transformers to Egypt. Thanks to our local colleagues, I was even able to make a short detour to the pyramids, which I probably would not have seen otherwise. ”
And what are the future plans for the Nuremberg branch?
“Our heavy-duty logistics centre in the port of Nuremberg is already very well positioned: a trimodal connection, spacious outdoor storage areas and a lifting system that is designed for loads of up to six hundred tons. But of course, we know: There is more to it than that. And that is exactly what we want to establish at the location. With the construction of a heavy lift assembly hall, we will strengthen our portfolio and offer additional services from a sole source from Nuremberg. The planning for this has already started. ”
Interesting, but also demanding. How do you find a balance to work in your private life?
“My family, my wife and my two children keep the balance for me. In addition, exercise, especially outdoors, is especially important for me: skiing, cycling, and hiking helps me clear my head, so I am ready for new tasks. ”
Thank you for the interview!
