Logistics Middle East’s 25 most powerful CEOs-Tom Nauwelaerts
The head of Al-Futtaim Logistics since April 2008, Tom Nauwelaerts has introduced a number of changes to the Dubai-based 3PL company over the past couple of years.
In particular, the European veteran has been hailed for his re-structuring of operations in the second half of 2009, with a focus on efficiency maximisation and cost minimisation to overcome challenges from the global recession. Nauwelaerts has a wealth of experience in the trade, including two years as chief executive officer of ALS Freight Management Group in the United Kingdom.
Moving forward, he has revealed plans for a three-phase expansion of Al-Futtaim Logistics, with the development of warehousing infrastructure in the United Arab Emirates, further investments into the company’s fleet of delivery vehicles, and a potential entry into other countries in the Middle East and throughout the world.
