Top 10 Logistics Leaders: Udo Lange

By Sean Galea-Pace
Having featured in our Top 10 Logistics Leaders in June’s magazine, we take a closer look at Dr. Udo Lange...

Lange is the President and CEO of Memphis-based FedEx Logistics, an integrated global logistics organisation providing a wide variety of supply chain, fulfillment, air and ocean cargo, customs brokerage and trade services, managed trade solutions and repair services. Lange is responsible for the leadership and strategic direction of FedEx Logistics.

He is a highly experienced industry professional and has worked in a variety of different roles at FedEx. Lange began as Head of Asia FedEx Trade Networks, before becoming CEO, COO and President and CEO of FedEx Trade Networks before stepping into his current role in September 2019. Prior to FedEx, Lange also worked at Schenker, Exel, DHL and Lufthansa in other leadership roles earlier in his career.


“FedEx Logistics is the ‘force multiplier’ within the FedEx enterprise because we bolster the enterprise portfolio by providing specialty solutions that complement core FedEx offerings, giving customers more seamless ways to reach 95 percent of the world’s gross domestic product,” Lange said. “Our air and ocean cargo networks, customs brokerage services and supply chain offerings come together to add value – and multiply results and efficiencies – in ways that cannot be achieved when selling individual logistics products on their own.”
