Sophie von Sahr

Global Chartering Director GEODIS

Sophie has been working in the freight forwarding industry for almost 17 years. Her career started with an apprenticeship in Rohe & Liesenfeld in Hamburg, Germany.  Here she had the chance to join the project team at the very beginning when it was just set up. The majority of the clients where pretty much focused on the chartering activities, which she handled from rate request stage, over negotiations, operations, etc. Sophie spend quite some time on board vessels as she was always super interested to learn from captains/engineers and port captains.

In 2015, she led the creation of the European Charter Desk with the support of Project Germany, Italy, Spain, and France. In 2016, Sophie then took on the responsibility of Global Chartering Coordinator within GEODIS. Since 2019 she is the head of Chartering.
