Peter Penseel, Senior Vice President for Cargo Sales and Network Planning at Qatar Airways Cargo will be joining CEVA Logistics as the Global Head of Air Freight at its headquarters in Marseille, France, effective June 29. He is most likely to replace Peter Baumgartner, Senior Vice President of Global Product Airfreight, who has been with CEVA for nine years.
Penseel has been on gardening leave from Qatar Airways Cargo since early March around the time the COVID-19 pandemic was beginning to have a serious impact on global aviation industry. However, Penseel said his leaving the Qatar job had nothing to do with COVID-19 but he just “accepted a new challenge”.
Penseel joined Qatar Airways Cargo in April 2016. He was the senior Vice President and Global Head of Network Carrier Management at DHL Global Forwarding in Amsterdam for more than three years before he made his move to Doha. Earlier, he worked with UTi Worldwide for close to eight years in multiple roles in the air freight business before the company was acquired by DSV in 2015.
