Peter Scholten rejoins forwarding industry as CEO of Fast Logistics Solutions
Peter Scholten, former commercial chief of Saudia Cargo, has become CEO of Fast Logistics Solutions (FLS) Group, taking him back to the forwarding industry where he began his career.
FLS was formed in January to create a better structure for the group of companies that includes Fast Forward Cargo, First Priority Cargo and Fast Forward Solutions. Headquartered in Dubai, with 15 offices and warehousing in the UAE, the sea and air freight group is also firmly focused on Africa, where it has 20 offices.
Mr Scholten took up his new role on February 1.
"My main focus will be on growing the group globally," he told The Loadstar. "FLS now has a large number of companies and we are growing - my job is to take it further and wider."
He said FLS was looking to expand further in Africa, particularly in landlocked parts of the continent. Its major African hubs currently consist of Dar es Salaam for sea freight and Lagos for air freight.
Mr Scholten left Saudia Cargo in January, after 19 years in the airline industry. "It's fantastic, really good to be back in forwarding," he said.
"We have a wide logistics portfolio, and one of the main reasons for forming the group structure was that people don't know all the companies are related," said Mr Scholten.
Saudia Cargo has yet to announce a replacement for Mr Scholten, whose former role is being covered in the interim by Rainer Mueller, director global sales support.
