Jie Zhou

My name is Jie Zhou. I already started my academic career in Europe in Rotterdam (Netherlands) at the Rotterdam Business School. I completed a BA in Logistics in English. Afterwards I went to Germany and first learned German at Communikation Akoun & Scholten for one year (2006). Yes, learning German is work, but the course was fun, and the lecturers did a good job. After I had passed the DSH examination, I started a Master’s degree in Logistic Engineering at the University of Duisburg-Essen and completed it after 2.5 years (2009). Then I started to work in Germany. First at the Deutsche Post in Bonn. After one year I changed to the subsidiary of Deutsche Post, DHL, and after 2 years in Bonn I was transferred to the branch of DHL in Singapore and worked in the Regional Route Management as a Risk Manager.
2014 was an important year for me. I changed my job again and started at Daimler (Daimler Northeast Asia Parts Trading and Services). For more than 5 years now (now as Senior Manager) I have been involved in warehouse logistics planning, managing warehouse design and construction projects and developing automation projects in existing warehouses together with my team. I no longer work in Germany – my office is currently in Beijing – but I work for a German company. My studies (and of course my language skills) gave me a good start in companies that all earn their money at the interface between Germany and China.
Finding and training young people for these jobs is, I think, an important contribution of the Tsinghua project and language training within the partnership between the UDE and its Chinese partners. Thank you very much for that!
