Tel: +32 475 46 44 22

After finalizing his college degree in the early 1980s, Luc started his logistics career as a shipping clerk. Later, he developed 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 created the exclusive Atlas Logistic Network together with their life long mentor, Issa Baluch, former FIATA president and owner of Swift Freight in Dubai. In 2019, Luc founded the Apollo Family Alliance to meet the lack of exclusive logistics networks in the freight industry.
