Swedish logistics company Scanlog has been busy developing its air cargo strategy following the appointment of Mikael Larsson as commercial director of airfreight solutions.

Larsson, who rejoined Scanlog in December, was director of air & seafreight solutions at the company from October 2012 until May 2018 and played a key role in developing its air and seafreight operations during the first years after the company was founded.

He subsequently worked as head of Sweden for cargo-partner and was recently responsible for DSV’s airfreight and express operations.

To support its expansion, Scanlog has appointed a commercial director for each product area: sea, air, and rail & road.

Larsson has overall commercial responsibility for the air product and its future development.

“We are lucky that Mikael has chosen to come back to Scanlog,” said Martin Ytander, Scanlog’s chief commercial officer.

“The pandemic and recent years’ challenges in the global freight markets have clearly shown the importance of well-functioning air freight, while the demands for sustainable value chains are increasing at the same time.

“Mikael brings solid expertise in air cargo in its broadest sense and is one of the sharpest airfreight brokers in Sweden. I am convinced that Mikael will create significant value for our existing and new customers within our Always Carbon Offset Air Freight concept.”

“It is very satisfying to work closely with our clients and develop sustainable logistics solutions, which I missed when I was away from Scanlog,” said Larsson.
