As of today, TIACA Chairman, Steven Polmans, has joined the Nallian team.
As Chief Customer Officer, Steven will be responsible for accelerating the expansion of Nallian’s global network of cargo communities that operate the Nallian Cargo Cloud.
Steven 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.
Steven Polmans, Chief Customer Officer at Nallian, commented: “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, added: “Following the signing of several new contracts in 2020 and the recent opening of our office in Singapore, having Steven 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.”
