Brussels Airport begins 2020 with a reinforced cargo team.
In line with its new business strategy where cargo & logistics is one of the four central pillars, the airport has decided to centralise the entire responsibility of all activities in the cargo zone, including operational, financial, commercial and real estate operations within the cargo business unit.
These activities will remain under the leadership of Steven Polmans, previously head of cargo, who has been appointed director of cargo & logistics. To manage all existing and additional activities, the cargo team will be significantly expanded with new and adapted functions. Nathan De Valck will take up the new role of head of product and network development.

Nathan De Valck will report directly to the director of cargo & logistics and be responsible, together with his team, for all business development and key account activities for airlines, forwarders and shippers as well as further developing various specialisations and products such as pharma, perishables, animal transport and e-commerce.
Brussels Airport will be adding more new members to its cargo and logistics team in the coming months, reinforcing the importance of cargo for the airport and its commitment to further develop itself as a leading logistics platform in Europe.
Managing around 26.4 million passengers and 665,000 tonnes of freight annually, Brussels Airport was the first in the world where stakeholders of the cargo community received the CEIV Pharma certification. The airport developed the CEIV Pharma programme in collaboration with IATA.
Brussels Airport connects the European capital with 238 destinations and 76 airlines are active at the airport. The airport is an important economic growth pool in Belgium and provides 60,000 direct and indirect jobs.
