Damco has appointed Naomi Landman as head of Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and network strategy to drive growth in 2020.

Landman brings two decades of forwarding experience and air freight expertise in senior management roles, most recently as managing director at GEFCO Netherlands

“We are looking into a variety of verticals to build on from our strong background in retail, as we continue to grow our customer portfolio,” said Landman.

The appointment comes as the Netherlands-based freight forwarder continues to diversify its service offerings, developing new air cargo solutions, investing in further digitalisation projects, and opening new facilities.

Saskia Groen-in’t-Woud, Damco chief executive, said: “We have done our homework and spent time understanding what our customers really want, refining our service offering, and bringing in the best people for its delivery.

 “We have put in place a solid digitalisation strategy that is optimising business and operational processes to maintain and continue to develop our customer service offering and our Business Resilience Programme.”

“Where we differentiate ourselves at Damco is our people-focussed approach to everything that we do, in order to deliver the best possible customer service,” added Groen-in’t-Woud.

Later this year the forwarder will launch the Damco app that allows the customer service team to monitor customer inventory across the supply chain, “enabling real-time reactions to any weather events or global unrest that is taking place”.
