Cargo Polmas NallianData sharing specialist Nallian has appointed former director of cargo and logistics at Brussels Airport and current TIACA chairman Steven Polmans as its chief customer officer.

As Chief Customer Officer, Polmans will be responsible for accelerating the expansion of Nallian’s global network of cargo communities that operate the Nallian Cargo Cloud. With his cargo expertise and impressive track record in digital cargo transformation and building cargo communities, he perfectly fits Nallian’s global ambition and mission ‘to make the world operate as one’.

Polmans has more than 20 years of expertise in the cargo sector and was the mastermind behind various game changing projects in the sector. As the founding father of BRUcloud, Brussels Airport’s Cargo Cloud, he was the first in the industry to get the different stakeholders at a cargo hub to work in a connected and integrated way by sharing data in their cross-company processes. A model that since then has been adopted by numerous other airports and took away several industry awards. Polmans was also the founder of Air Cargo Belgium, the (again award-winning) industry association that groups all stakeholders at Brussels Airport and fuels the continuous expansion of BRUcloud.

Polmans, Chief Customer Officer at Nallian, comments: “When I decided to leave Brussels Airport, it has always been my intention to stay in the sector and build further on what I have created together with my cargo colleagues and peers. 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. 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. I now look forward to assist other cargo actors - airports, ground handlers, freight forwarders, trucking companies, shippers, … - with their digital cargo transformation and their journey to connected, collaborative work.”

Jean Verheyen, CEO of Nallian, adds: “Following the signing of several new contracts in 2020 and the recent opening of our office in Singapore, having Polmans on board is yet again another important step for Nallian. We have worked closely together in the past and are fully aligned on our vision for the cargo industry. Polmans brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the team, which together with his drive and collaborative mindset will help us accelerate and support more airports better on their journey to connected, collaborative work. We are very excited to shape the future of air cargo together.”

Alex Driesen, Co-Entrepreneur, who is moving on from Nallian, states: “Getting Polmans on board is a major leap for Nallian. In my career, I have not often met people with the same combination of vision, energy and empathy. I look very much forward to seeing Polmans write the next chapter of Nallian’s journey to make the world operate as one.”

 Polmans is starting as of today, January 18th 2021.
