In his role as Head of Intermodal at Schenker AG headquarters in Essen, Stoll will be responsible for linking the different modes of transport efficiently, in particular DB SCHENKERhangartner.

Trucks handle pre-carriage and onward carriage, while trains handle long distances in unaccompanied combined transport. His predecessor, Patrick Zilles, has left the company at his own request.
His position at DB Schenker was created in light of the growing importance of intermodal solutions in the beginning of the year.

40 years old Stoll was previously responsible for the European development of a medium-sized freight forwarding group.
