The 51-year-old will manage the business of the Nuremberg-based logistics specialist together with Dipl.-Ing. Michael Reichle.
Nuremberg, 14.06.2022 – In addition to his role as CEO of Hamburg-based Opheo Solutions GmbH, Dr. Stefan Anschütz is also joining the management of Nuremberg-based Städtler Logistik GmbH with immediate effect. The 51-year-old will manage the business of Städtler Logistik together with Dipl.-Ing. Michael Reichle, who has successfully managed the traditional company for over 20 years.
Die gemeinsame Geschäftsführung ermöglicht es, die sich ergänzende Produktpalette beider Unternehmen strategisch auszubauen und neue Kundenlösungen zu entwickeln. Städtler Logistik GmbH has been one of the leading providers of transport management software and route planning, logistics consulting and freight auditing for over 60 years. The Opheo Solutions GmbH supports its customers with award-winning software for truck dispatching, route optimisation and telematics. Both companies are part of the Solvares Group, the European market leader for intelligent resource optimisation in sales, field service, transport logistics and service.
"As CEO of Opheo Solutions and co-managing director of Städtler Logistik, Stefan Anschütz will be responsible for the holistic management of the tour planning business of both companies and leverage the corresponding growth potential within the group," Matthias Grünberger, spokesman of the Solvares management, explains the strategic orientation. "Opheo's software offering in the areas of tour control, ETA forecasting and telematics complements Städtler's portfolio excellently. Conversely, Städtler's products for transport allocation, invoicing and auditing represent highly interesting extensions for Opheo customers," Grünberger continues.
Städtler Managing Director Michael Reichle welcomes the reinforcement in the management: "Our companies and our customers will benefit from our close cooperation. I look forward to working on the future of transport logistics together with Stefan Anschütz, a proven expert in software solutions, and to supporting the joint growth in the Solvares Group."
Stefan Anschütz initially founded initions AG in 2001 and led it as CEO for 20 years. In 2021, he spun off the logistics software business from the company and led it into the Solvares Group as Opheo Solutions.
Before founding initions AG, Stefan Anschütz worked as a lecturer for artificial intelligence and computer-aided planning at the University of Hamburg. The passionate runner, cross-country skier and beach volleyball player is looking forward to the new task:
"I have known Städtler Logistik as a market companion for many years. The company has a strong service portfolio and excellent customer references. Together with Michael Reichle, being able to offer our customers an even broader product range in the future is a great task for me, which I approach with great enthusiasm."
