BCO Conference 2023 Presents Solutions to Future Challenges - The world is changing, and so is the logistics and transportation industry. The opportunities and perspectives, as well as the risks arising from these changes, were the focus of this year's BCO Conference, held on September 26, 2023, in Antwerp, Belgium, at the invitation of XSTAFF GmbH.
Effective January 16, 2023, Stephan Schiller will become the new managing director and partner of XSTAFF GmbH. The 52-year-old, most recently Managing Director of Hermes Europe GmbH and CEO of Hermes International, will in future lead the company's fortunes together with company founder Bodo Knop and Antonios Rigalos, Chief Growth Officer of XSTAFF.

A development that usually affects the poorest countries and regions in the world.
