Dutch air cargo award for van Loon

Sjoerd van Loon, CEO of logistics company IJS Global is the first ever winner of the Martin Schröder Award. Van Loon received the trophy from the founder of Martinair – after whom the trophy is named – at the Dutch National Air Cargo Awards held in Amsterdam on 28 November. The award was established to honour individuals who have distinguished themselves in the Dutch air cargo sector. The jury saw him as a pioneer in that field.

Van Loon began his career at KLM Cargo in 1967, moved on to Pakhoed where he was involved in the integrations of Pandair and Muller International. In 1991 he acquired Müller Freight Services through a management buyout, which five years later became market-leader AEI. Van Loon subsequently held senior positions within AEI, Exel and DHL. Ten years ago, he started IJS Global and headquartered it at Schiphol.
