Nico Zonne: the man who breathes transport

Nico Zonne - founder and owner of Euro Forwarding - is what you call a natural talent. His first courier service started in high school at the age of 13. By delivering goods and customs documents on his bicycle in-a-box. And was hired by his first ship employer when his studies were just behind him. It would be the start of an impressive career spanning the whole world. Includes all conceivable modes of transport. And has made "international" his home. Partly by being fluent in German, French and English, but also being able to manage in Spanish, Italian, Ivrid (modern Hebrew), Mandarin and Puntoga (Cantonese). A man who has observed cultures throughout his life, developed personal relationships and become one of the most experienced international freight forwarders in the transportation world.

Noticed by a large number of logistics think tanks and legislative bodies in which Nico is active to this day. Such as the NDIV project (Netherlands Digital in Connection, about smart and paperless exchange of information), the Central College of Experts of the SMHV (foundation for wooden packaging), the FeNex (think tank logistics), the Seaport Logistics Steering Group (international discussion platform for port developments) and resulting from other discussions with parties such as Deltalinqs, AZV (alliance of sea container shippers) and the VRC (organization of Rotterdam ship brokers).

A man who breathes international logistics. But also a man who recognizes that transport is all about people. Combining state-of-the-art business operations with old school elements such as reliability, flexibility and the value of a personal handshake. Nico has deposited everything he has acquired over the years into Euro Forwarding. Maybe not the largest in the industry, but one of the best.
