Global logistics, technology and supply chain provider EV Cargo has strengthened its platform for European freight forwarding growth with two key executive appointments.
Following the strategic acquisition of Netherlands-headquartered Fast Forward Freight in March, its former CEO Marc Terpstra has been appointed as Vice President Europe, helping to strengthen EV Cargo’s freight transport offer, reorganising the combined operations under one management control and identifying future acquisition targets.
Meanwhile, former Fast Forward Freight CFO Robert Van Breugel has taken on the role of Finance Director Europe.
The acquisition of Fast Forward Freight was a key milestone in EV Cargo’s corporate growth strategy – expanding its European network and increasing capability in Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Greece and Switzerland.
It also added several thousand customers to EV Cargo across strategic industry verticals and will play a significant role in EV Cargo’s growth plans to surpass $3 billion of revenue by 2025 through organic growth and further acquisitions.
Heath Zarin EV Cargo Founder, Chairman and CEO, said: “The acquisition of Fast Forward Freight was a key part of EV Cargo’s corporate strategy to expand our worldwide footprint and grow our freight forwarding and supply chain services business.
“We welcome Marc and Robert to their new roles, their appointments will help ensure we are well organised to deliver on our global growth strategy.
“As global supply chains face continued challenges, customers increasingly want end-to-end solutions that improve supply chain resilience, transparency and reliability. The strength, skills and expertise of the people in our business will ensure we continue to deliver on those needs.”
