C.H. Robinson Worldwide




The Eden Prairie-based Fortune 500 company, one of the world’s largest logistics-services providers, continues to expand, doubling the size of its European workforce in three years. In October it announced plans to build new offices in Chicago, where nearly 15 percent of its global headcount is based. One of the opportunities Wiehoff and company see is the growth of global, cross-border e-commerce, which will present new challenges for managing demand, fuel costs and truckload efficiency. While the company was once exclusively a trucker, Wiehoff sees air freight as a growth opportunity for Robinson as well.
