Broekman Logistics adds air cargo charter desk

Broekman Logistics has introduced a dedicated Global Air Charter Desk as demand for air cargo services changes.
The freight forwarder said it had decided to launch the desk in response to tightening capacity and shorter supply chains.
The new charter division will be led by Ton Smulders, a "well-known airfreight veteran" with four decades of experience.
Cor de Man, general manager international freight forwarding at Broekman Logistics, said: “supply chains shorten, demands rise, capacity is not a given and expectations skyrocket: this will increasingly call for Air Charters or Part Charters to fill gaps in elaborate supply and demand chains.
"In this dynamic field, Ton Smulders and his team will gladly provide the solutions to our clients supply chain challenges.”
Smulders his first taste of air cargo while working at Holland America Line in 1976 and when they pulled out of aviation he decided to stay with the industry.
