BREMEN. Lars Hedderich, long-term managing director of Eurogate Intermodal (EGIM), will be leaving the company at the end of the year. This step came as part of the company’s change process ‘Future Eurogate,’ with which the company hopes to reduce personnel and material costs permanently by 84 million euros, explained the combined transport operator. Christopher Beplat will take over as the sole managing director. Hedderich worked for the Eurogate Group for 32 years and is considered to be one of the pioneers of intermodal transport.
