Meet the People

Evelyn Zhong

Evelyn joined  Ahlers Logistics in 2017, as Finance Manager for China. With more than 30 years of experience in the logistics industry, she can always provide valuable perspectives not only on the finance aspect but also on HR and ADM aspects to the local management team. She thrives on productivity and efficiency and took a leading role in the upgrade of local operating and finance systems. She is especially proud of the remarkable progress and changes Ahlers made in the past years, and achievements made. Joining the Ahlers group is the best decision she has ever made. She very much appreciates the people that support and trust her, providing her with ample room to operate efficiently and grow. 

Wim Copmans

Wim's journey with Ahlers began in 2002 when he received an enticing letter from the company among other graduates, offering opportunities for young specialists like himself. Starting with administrative tasks like issuing bills of lading, he quickly found himself immersed in complex logistics projects. Over the years, he evolved into a key account manager, steering projects for major customers. Wim's enduring commitment to Ahlers stems from his appetite for continual growth and the dynamic nature of project forwarding, where every project and client presents a unique set of challenges and opportunities for learning. His advice to others echoes his own journey: embrace diverse experiences within logistics, understand your customers' needs intimately, and always be willing to go the extra mile for success.

Elena Zharko

Elena joined Ahlers in 2008 as an International Forwarding Manager. Over time, she progressed to Key Account Manager, Deputy Director, and eventually became Country Manager for Ahlers Ukraine in 2015. Her satisfaction in logistics stems from tangible results — efficient processes, high team performance, and satisfied customers. Her team is driven to excel and constantly seek optimal solutions. Leadership, to her, means inspiring greatness in the team. Since 2022, their work in Kharkiv has become more difficult − ensuring colleagues’ safety remains paramount. Their logistical background equips them to navigate through ever-changing circumstances, though uniting a dispersed team across regions and countries amidst ongoing conflict presents its own set of challenges. She resonates with the saying, «A good man is not always a professional, and a good professional is not always a good man.» If she was to meet her past self in 2008, she would tell herself that she would be lucky to work both with great people and professionals.
