Effective 1 January 2020, Martin Bos will step down as Managing Director of DFDS Logistics Special Cargo. Martin was founder and owner of Alphatrans, which was acquired by DFDS in January 2018, and Alphatrans continued trading as DFDS Logistics Special Cargo.

Michael Bech, VP & Head of BU Logistics, says: “Martin Bos has done more than an outstanding job in building the business. A very big thank you to Martin for 24 years of good leadership and shaping of the business.”

“I am very happy to announce that our new Managing Director of DFDS Logistics Special Cargo will be Philippe Witsiers, who will join DFDS on 1 February 2020. Philippe will be responsible for the Special Cargo activities, not only in Vlaardingen but also in our satellite offices.”

Philippe is an architecture and business administration graduate with a bachelor in transport and distribution logistics. After seven years of working as International Supply Chain Consultant and Interim Supply Chain Manager, he became Business Development Director at Kloosterboer, an international logistics service provider in the temperature-controlled food products business.

Philippe (40) lives with his wife and daughter in Ouderkerk aan de Amstel in the Netherlands, and they are expecting a baby boy by the end of December.
Philippe will report directly to Michael Bech, VP & Head the BU Continent.

“Please join me in congratulating Philippe on his new job and welcome him to DFDS,” Michael says.
