Delivering The Promise
“I think it’s important
for more of the industry to adopt
Cargo iQ standards.
“It is also important for
freight forwarders, air cargo
carriers and shippers to work

that exists currently.”
A Life Well LivedWhen he departs from Emirates headquarters, he repairs to home in what Jeffrey describes as “ very nice neighborhood in Dubai.”

“Of course, in my heart I will always have Amsterdam as my favorite city, even though Dubai is a great place to live and very stable and safe, especially for families.
“I quite like sushi and once again in Dubai there is no shortage of restaurants serving eclectic international cuisine.”
Why Air Cargo?
“I always find it inspiring
to meet people in the industry
who are very open to new ideas
and concepts and willing to adapt
to new situations even if they
have been in the same industry
for a very long time.
