LUC HUYSMANS

Founding father

Bio

After finalizing his college degree, Luc started his logistic career in the early ‘80s as a shipping clerk and developed his skills into project shipment and chartering 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, founded in 1918 as a part of the VanUden Group in Rotterdam. After realizing a management buyout in 1993, Luc at the same time obtained the ownership of another Antwerp forwarding company with a 50 years logistic tradition in the local Antwerp market.

Five years later, Luc and his partners created the Atlas International Network together with their life time mentor, Issa Baluch, former FIATA president and owner of Swift Freight in Dubai. Since 2013, Luc has taken full responsibility of the daily management of the Atlas International Network.
