YIGIT Saricinar has been promoted to the position of regional air freight director of supply chain operator GEODIS’ Asia-Pacific operation. He will join GEODIS’ regional management board, reporting to the regional president and CEO Onno Boots.
Previously sub-regional air freight director, ASEAN, Mr Saricinar has 15 years experience in the air freight industry and has been a valued member of the ASEAN management team at GEODIS over the last three years. During this time 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.
Onno Boots said, “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.
“While some passenger airlines have resumed operations, the current situation in the air freight market remains volatile.
“The air freight 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.”
