Geodis promotes Saricinar into airfreight director APAC role

By Rachelle Harry

Geodis has promoted Yigit Saricinar — former sub-regional airfreight director, ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) — into the role of airfreight director, Asia Pacific (APAC).

Saricinar, who has 15 years of experience in the industry, also joins the company’s regional management board.

He will report to Onno Boots, regional president and chief executive of Geodis Asia Pacific.

Boots commenced: “The head of airfreight for APAC has a key role to play in the development of Geodis’ services in the region. We have ambitious goals. We will continue to be a valued growth partner to our customers, and assurance of delivering reliable and differentiated airfreight solutions to our customers is crucial. As we expand on our scheduled services, such as AirDirect Mexico which connects Greater China to Mexico twice weekly, Saricinar’s leadership will be pivotal.”

Saricinar added: “While some passenger airlines have resumed operations, the current situation in the air freight market remains volatile. The airfreight team in APAC is well positioned to not only navigate the continued turbulence of the air cargo market in 2021, but to also thrive in both these conditions and in the years to come. We will continue to invest in our own controlled network and fixed capacity.”
