Time-critical firm Airspace Technologies eyes European expansion

Marcel Andriessen

US time critical logistics firm Airspace Technologies is looking to expand its European business after opening its first office on the continent earlier this year.

The company opened Airspace B.V, which is its European headquarters, at Schiphol-Rijk in June this year, but will now look to expand its team further in the Netherlands as well as France, Germany, and the UK

The move is “in line with its rapid growth plans to fulfill customer demand”, the company said.

The new European operation will be managed by Marcel Andriessen, who has worked in the time-critical sector for 20 years.

Andriessen was managing director at time:matters for 10 years played a key role in its expansion into the US. Andriessen will lead the Airspace BV organisation as managing director.

“I am looking forward to getting back into time-critical logistics and to bring Airspace’s leading-edge technology to the European market. Customers here have not experienced the speed and transparency that Airspace offers, and I welcome the opportunity to show them how much better time-critical logistics can be,” said Andriessen.

Customers including Quest Diagnostics, Varian Medical, and Allegiant Air Corporation.

The company said its technology platform provides real-time, door-to-door transparency throughout the entire shipment process.

“The time-critical market is full of difficult problems. Customers too often have a poor experience because the industry is trying to solve these problems using antiquated practices. Shippers across Europe need a modern platform that can provide the level of transparency and error prevention that these critical shipments deserve,” said Nick Bulcao, co-founder and chief executive of Airspace Technologies, Inc.
