Aris’ primary focus will be to lead the continental growth and advancement of
the global forwarding division, including setting the Europe global forwarding

A 20-year industry veteran, Aris has held responsibilities in sales,

in 2007. Aris became the Country Manager for air and ocean freight for The
Netherlands, was member of the Global Air & Ocean management team and had

communication skills to lead us forward and grow our European global
forwarding operations,” said Stephane Rambaud, Senior Vice President of Global
Forwarding. “The overall strength of our global forwarding capabilities
worldwide continues to provide high service and value to our customers.”

C.H. Robinson established an initial presence in Europe 20 years ago through
partial ownership of Transeco, a motor carrier in France. In that time, the
company has built a network of 51 offices and has over 1,000 employees
throughout Europe to become one of the leading freight forwarders in the
region. Since July 2012, C.H. Robinson has named Bryan Foe president of its
