Dr. Carsten Hinne – CEO

Between 2002 and 2006 he was involved in the planning and implementation of more than 50 M&A projects in various sectors of the group, both for national and international projects.

After building up profound financial and strategic skills in this project management function, Carsten Hinne joined the Corporate Development Team of the DB Group, where he headed the strategy department for DB’s rail freight activities from 2007-2010.

In 2011, he assumed his first Managing Director position to head the strategic expansion of DB Schenker’s Intermodal and Rail Logistics business unit in the UK. In this role, he was responsible for the expansion of DB Schenker’s existing intermodal services from British deep-sea and inland ports, providing customers with reliable intermodal services based on various modes of transport.

Since January 2018 he has been Senior Vice President (SVP) responsible for the development of the Eurasian rail corridor for DB Cargo and was subsequently appointed Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of DB Cargo Eurasia.

Carsten Hinne holds a master’s degree in economics and a doctorate from the University of Nuremberg.

Andreas Lübs – CFO

Andreas Lübs, Chief Financial Officer of DB Cargo Eurasia, already dedicates his entire professional life to the area of finance.

After studying business administration at the University of Rostock, he started his professional career at the auditing company Arthur Andersen. One of the consulting projects took him to DFO Deutsche Fährgesellschaft Ostsee mbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Deutsche Bahn, where he was hired as Head of Controlling in September 1993.

Over the following 16 years, this company, which later became the Scandlines Group through a merger with a Danish partner shipping company, was to be his professional home. After Andreas Lübs had worked his way up to the position of CFO of Scandlines AG, he moved to the United Kingdom in 2009 and assumed responsibility for the finances of DB Cargo UK as CFO. Another 5 years later, his path led him to Transfesa in Spain. There, Andreas Lübs was also responsible for finance.

He returned to Germany in September 2018 and has since been working with his colleagues on the development and expansion of DB Cargo’s rail freight transport on the Eurasian corridor.

As his career path already suggests, he enjoys the international logistics business with all its facets and challenges very much.

Andreas Lübs is married and has an (almost) adult son.
