BlueBox Systems establishes advisory board

BlueBox Systems has now established a high-level advisory board to provide strategic support and fresh impetus from the outside for the company’s development.

Michael Wallraven (pictured left), Jochen Frömming (pictured right) and Christoph Osterbrink (pictured centre) form part of the board with all of them bringing many years of expertise and valuable experience from various disciplines and industries.

Martin Schulze, CEO of BlueBox Systems, said: “With BlueBox Systems we want to make the supply chains in air freight and logistics more transparent and thus more efficient at the same time.

“The support of the experts of the advisory board is very important for us. Their expertise and extensive industry knowledge will help BlueBox Systems on its way to continue to develop innovative solutions that focus on customer needs.”

The members of the board are proven experts in technology, logistics and finance. BlueBox Systems thus consciously incorporates knowledge and market expertise of respected industry experts with different professional backgrounds and skills into its strategic considerations.

Mr Wallraven said: “I support BlueBox Systems as part of the advisory board because I am convinced of the company‘s power of innovation. BlueBox Systems has the potential to transform logistics industry with its advanced solutions and make it more efficient.”

He has earned 30 years of experience in the B2B technology industry, helping several leading supply chain and logistics software companies to expand their presence and to grow fast in Europe.

Mr Wallraven is chief growth officer at Logward, one of the new highly scalable supply chain orchestration control tower platforms. Prior to Logward he was vice president and managing director at project44, responsible for Germany, Austria, Switzerland and for all regions in Middle and Eastern Europe.

He was responsible for all commercial activities, the go-to-market and growth strategy of the company.

Jochen Frömming has more than 20 years’ experience in the logistic business. He knows the industry like no other, says BlueBox Systems. He said: “As a part of the advisory board I would like to contribute with my knowledge and my experience to help BlueBox Systems to further develop its solutions and help the company to adapt to the challenges of the logistics industry.

“I strongly believe in the promising future of BlueBox Systems”, he added.

Mr Frömming has been part of the Logivest Concept GmbH management team since April 2023, primarily advancing the expansion of process consulting. Prior to that the Dortmund native was an authorised officer and new business sales manager at SSI Schäfer for more than 20 years.

Christoph Osterbrink has got many years of experience in the finance and investment sector, and he also sees a lot of potential at BlueBox Systems. He said: “BlueBox Systems established itself as an innovative player in the logistics industry.

“I’m looking forward contributing my financial expertise and to accompany the growth of this company. Together we can help BlueBox Systems to be even more successful.”

Mr Osterbrink is a partner of Steinbeis M&A Partners GmbH, one of the leading M&A consultancies for medium-sized companies, focusing on the planning and execution of corporate transactions.

In addition to his work at Steinbeis M&A Christoph Osterbrink is a founding partner of Steinbeis Consulting for Impact Investing, a consulting firm for sustainable and social companies in emerging and developing countries.

Previously, he was executive director of corporate finance and capital markets at the investment bank Fortis (today known as ABN Amro) in Frankfurt and Amsterdam, and responsible for M&A and capital market transactions focusing on healthcare
