12.11.2014 | For the first time, Contargo has appointed a Managing Director from another country. Since October, Marcel Hulsker has been the fourth Managing Director of the holding company. The 45-year-old inland navigation expert from the Netherlands will strengthen the presence of Contargo in the Benelux countries.
Marcel Hulsker has many years’ experience in container logistics. He began his career in 1991 with sea carrier Alpina and then worked his way up at Rhinecontainer from Assistant Dispatcher to Managing Director. Following the takeover by Contargo and the re-naming of the company to Contargo Waterway Logistics BV, Marcel Hulsker remained as Managing Director. Since then, the inland barge transport activities of Contargo have been operating from Zwijndrecht near Rotterdam.
Marcel Hulsker is also taking on the management of Contargo Network Service GmbH & Co. KG on behalf of the Contargo holding company. Contargo Network Service specialises in the forwarding of container hinterland transports both within and outside the Contargo network.
In addition, as Co-Managing Director Marcel Hulsker is responsible for the Antwerp-based joint venture Transbox United BVBA which commenced operations in October 2014. The Contargo container service Transbox and United Container Transport are joint participants in this company, which focuses on short-distance transports by barge between the seaport terminals and hinterland terminals in the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt area.
