Robinson's presence in Europe and supports our goals to strengthen our capabilities in our core business and further diversify our modal offering, both of which benefit our European and global customer base,” said Bryan Foe, president of C.H. Robinson Europe.The decision to acquire Apreo is the latest in a series of moves for C.H. Robinson in Europe. Previously, the company named Bryan Foe president of C.H. Robinson Europe and opened an office in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, which focuses on temperature controlled transportation. “We are taking a long-term approach towards Europe and feel now is a good opportunity to increase our commitment to the region,” said John Wiehoff, CEO and chairman of C.H. Robinson. “The agreement to acquire Apreo supports our strategy of making continued investments in our business within the continent.” The acquisition of Apreo adds to C.H. Robinson’s employee and management base in a key European market. Current CEO of Apreo, Arkadiusz Glinka, will continue in a similar role going forward. “We are excited to be able to add our expertise, knowledge and services while becoming part of the talented C.H.
