Luc Huysmans

After finalizing his college degree in the early 1980s, Luc started his logistics career as a shipping clerk. Later, he developed his skills in project shipment and chartering while working for multiple breakbulk shipping lines. He remained active in the shipping industry until 1993, when he was invited to become director of a well-known forwarding company in Antwerp, which was founded in 1918 as a part of the Van Uden Group in Rotterdam.

After realizing a management buyout in 1993, Luc obtained ownership of a second Antwerp forwarding company with a 50 years logistic tradition in the local Antwerp market.

Five years later, Luc and his partners founded the Atlas Logistic Network, which he manages full-time since the semi-retirement of Gijs Pleyte in 2013. In 2014, Luc created the Alfa Logistics Family, Atlas’ non-exclusive counterpart.

Luc Huysmans

After a one-year education in New Zealand, Ruth did a 3-year degree in logistics management at the Karel De Grote Hogeschool in Antwerp. After this, she started her logistics career at Atlantic Container Line, a specialized transatlantic carrier of containers, project and oversized cargo. During these 5 years, she had the opportunity to really discover all aspects and challenges of the import and export sector.

In 2017, Ruth switched to the Alfa Logistics Family to become a network coordinator, which so far has been an enriching experience:

“Working together with members from all over the globe has been wonderful. I have been fortunate to have met many of our members in person during our annual conferences, which I believe is one of the key assets of Alfa.  I’m convinced that our team has the capability to strengthen and enlarge our logistics network by constantly looking for new and better benefits for all of our members.”
