C.H. Robinson Worldwide has appointed Ivo Aris to director of global forwarding for its European operations.
A 20-year industry veteran, Aris has held responsibilities in sales, operations, and management at Road Air, which was acquired by the Rhenus Group in 2007. Aris became the country manager for air and ocean freight for the Netherlands and was a member of the global air and ocean management team at Rhenus. In addition, he’s chairman of the Dutch Airfreight Forwarders’ Association.
C.H. Robinson established its presence in Europe 20 years ago through partial ownership of Transeco, a motor carrier in France. In that time, the company has built a network of 51 offices and has over 1,000 employees throughout Europe. Since July 2012, the company has named Bryan Foe president of its European operations, acquired Apreo Logistics S.A., and opened offices in Rotterdam and Istanbul.
