Pieter van Dijk founded Cargo Screeners in the spring of 2013. In that year, stricter legislation by the government caused an increase in demand for screening air cargo on explosives and dangerous goods. In the air cargo industry the legislative changes in securing air cargo were an important topic. Reflecting on this Pieter saw an opportunity, wrote a business plan and convinced parties involved of the viability of the product. May 1st 2013 is marked on the calendar as ‘Birthday’ of Cargo Screeners!
Eight years of considerable growth later, Cargo Screeners is no longer a ‘newbie’! There is an operational team of six enthusiastic colleagues, 10 EDD teams with one or two dogs and a commercial department. The entire team is dedicated in every field, has regular meetings with one main goal: keeping the customers satisfied and meeting their demands in a dynamic industry called air cargo.
