Frank Erschkat will take over as Chairman of the TFG Transfracht Management Board from January 1, 2021. He will represent the Sales / Operations / Market-ing department.

Erschkat has held various management positions within the DB Group since 1999 and, in addition to extensive experience in seaport hinterland logistics, has extensive management experience in sales and production.
