Final "shift"

After more than 37 years of service for the TGB and the DTG in Andernach, Gaby Kleemann has left our ship. On the occasion of her official adoption on 9 December 2016, she convinced us in saying that she would do so with mixed feelings.

Thus, the good, fair and collegial cooperation with our customers, our members and her colleagues of the DTG ended on 16 December 2016.

From now on, Gaby will focus on her little granddaughter Hannah and her husband Günter. She will also be more concerned about her hobby, tennis, and will have time to watch biathlon competitions and matches from an unspecified football league.

Supervisory and Executive Board and all our employees wish Gaby healthiness, good luck and all the very best for the future.

DTG at STL fair

On 27 and 28 September 2016, DTG attended the German-Dutch Shipping-Technics-Logistics (STL) trade fair as exhibitor for the first time in Kalkar, Lower Rhine. During this successful trade fair, many interesting conversations were held, offering DTG unique opportunities to make new contacts with shippers and barge owners.

Also, the DTG stand was well received both by customers and exhibitors. Apart from DTG’s CEO Roberto Spranzi, three staff members from the scheduling department were present in teams of two on each day.


DTG strengthens Hamburg team

On 1 September 2016, Mr. Tobias Stuckenschneider started working for our Hamburg branch.

The 32-year-old transport specialist, who was born in Hamburg, completed both his high school graduation and his training as a forwarding and logistics services agent. He is a professional who has spent his previous professional life within the field of inland waterway transport.

We are looking forward to working with Tobias Stuckenschneider and we are confident that he will use his extensive knowledge to the benefit of our customers and members.

DTG Magdeburg welcomes new colleague

On 1 June 2016, Ms. Jacqueline Kurth started working at our Magdeburg branch.

Ms. Kurth was born in 1975 and is originally from Burg. After school, she first worked in the catering and hotel trade and then changed to the field of logistics in 2009.
Being a skilled trader for forwarding and logistics services with several years of professional experience, she has convinced us to be the right person to add to our team in Magdeburg.

We would like to wish Ms. Kurth every success, looking forward to a good cooperation.

Stefan Pohl appointed safety officer

According to § 22 Social Security Code VII, § 20 of the Accident Prevention Regulation “Principles of Prevention” (provision 1 of the German Social Accident Insurance), the board and the management have appointed Stefan Pohl safety officer of the entire DTG eG and ARNO Ship GmbH on 1 February 2016. In this context, he has successfully participated in a seminar for inland navigation security officers of the Traffic Trade Association from 15 to 18 February 2016.

We wish Stefan Pohl the best of success and good luck for this additional field of duty.

Adjustment of terms and conditions

The German Association of Freight Forwarding and Logistics (DSLV) have updated their previous terms and conditions, issuing the German General Transport Conditions 2016 (ADSp 2016). Apart from ad-justments to the current law, these new terms and conditions contain major novelties on electronic communications and will also provide for the limitation of liability of forwarders.
With inland waterway transportation, DTG will continue to work on the basis of the International Load-ing and Transport Conditions (IVTB, latest version) while forwarding business will now be transacted solely on the basis of the General German Freight Forwarding Terms and Conditions (ADSp 2016, latest version). This reorganization will be communicated by DTG in emails and business papers updated and provided with a corresponding statement on the IVTB and the ADSp 2016.
You are welcome to either request the IVTB and ADSp 2016 from us or read and download them on our website:
