GEODIS announced that Yigit Saricinar has been promoted to Regional Air Freight Director, Asia Pacific (APAC). He will join GEODIS’ regional Management Board, reporting to Onno Boots, GEODIS’ Regional President and CEO, APAC.
Previously, he was Sub-Regional Air Freight Director, ASEAN.
In a statement, GEODIS noted that Yigit has 15 years of experience in the air freight industry and has been a valued member of the ASEAN management team at GEODIS over the last 3 years.
During this time, the global logistics provider also noted that he has built a strong foundation for air freight in key ASEAN countries and will now expand his responsibilities to manage an ambitious air freight strategy within the region as a whole.
In commenting on the appointment, Onno Boots said “The Head of Air Freight 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 the 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, Yigit’s leadership will be pivotal.”
Yigit for his part said, “while some passenger airlines have resumed operations, the current situation in the air freight market remains volatile,” as he committed to help the firm navigate the continuing challenges in the industry.
“The air freight team in APAC is well-positioned to not only navigate the continued turbulence of the air cargo market in 2021 but 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,” he said.
