Crane Worldwide has snapped up its second Jas Forwarding executive in four months with the appointment of Robert Gulyas as global vice president, automotive and industrial.

Mr Gulyas spent more than 10 years at Jas Forwarding, most recently as global account director, EMEA. Prior to that, he spent nearly three years at Ceva Freight Germany. He has specialised in the automotive and industrial sectors in recent years, said Crane.

The forwarder added: “Electrification plays a significant role in changing traditional products and services, and state-of-the-art technology is transforming the industry.”

Noting the current supply chain turbulence, Mr Guylas said: “The automotive supply chain has traditionally relied upon lean logistics techniques and has been a showcase for just-in-time methodology. There is no denying there are challenges ahead and transformation is underway; my goal at Crane Worldwide Logistics is to provide a global partnership approach to deliver added end-to-end value in global supply chains.”

Gerard Ryan, president, global commercial at Crane, added: “We are delighted to have Robert’s expertise on board to develop our automotive and industrial vertical further and continue to provide advanced service levels to our clients with state-of-the-art technology.”

In May, Crane poached Jas Forwarding veteran John O’Connor to be its executive vice president, strategy development.
