Transinvest shareholder celebrates 80th birthday
Werner Albert, long-time president of the board and one of the main owners of Transinvest Holding, celebrated his 80th birthday on 4 January 2020. Albert is regarded as one of the major architects of today’s railway services between Europe and China.
In the transport and logistics industry, he enjoys an international reputation, mainly as the far-sighted supporter of rail transports via the Eurasian land bridge – currently the most important overland route between China and Europe with regular container block train services from China via Central Asia to Europe.
Most recently, in his functions as vice chairman of the CCTT (international coordinating council on Trans-Eurasian transports) and honorary chairman of Geto, Albert actively supported progress, promoting the cooperation of the railway companies involved and launching many new projects. (mw)
