With 20 years of experience in the cargo sector, Steven Polmans, former director for cargo & logistics at Brussels Airport, will join Nallian as chief customer officer. He retains the current chairman post with TIACA and will be responsible for expanding the network of cargo communities that operate on Nallian’s Cargo Cloud.
Jean Verheyen, CEO of Nallian, said the hiring move follows the new contracts inked with lux-Airport and Dallas Fort Worth, and the recent opening of its office in Singapore.
Polmans founded BRUcloud and Air Cargo Belgium which were instrumental in bringing together stakeholders at Brussels Airport to work in a connected away through data sharing. This model has since then been adopted by other airports and took away several industry awards.
“Air cargo is more than a job for me, it’s a passion and it was very important for me to find a place where I can share, cultivate and act upon this passion. I feel Nallian is the best place for me to do so,” said the new chief customer officer.
“We share the ambition to drive efficiency and transparency in the air cargo industry by making cargo communities operate in a connected, collaborative way.
“It is what initially brought us together on the BRUcloud project, and what we have been developing at Brussels Airport over the past years,” he added.
In his new role, Polmans will assist airports, ground handlers, freight forwarders, trucking companies and shippers in realising digital cargo transformation and industry collaboration.
