cargo-partner has opened its fourth UK office located close to London Heathrow Airport.
It means the international transport and logistics provider has teams based across Manchester, Basildon, Bradford and now London.
After embarking on a joint venture with Aztek International Freight Ltd in 2021, cargo-partner acquired the remaining shares of the UK-based company in 2022, bringing all expert teams together under the cargo-partner brand and continuing to increase UK operations.
cargo-partner states the additional office in London is in response to growing demand from local customers.
Neil Murray, managing director of cargo-partner in the UK, said: “It’s been a fantastic year – we’re continuing to invest in the team, launch new products and solutions across our vast portfolio, and this new London office sees us continue to deliver on our growth strategy, providing another great location for us to support our clients and partners.
“As the capital city of England and a major economic centre in Europe, London attracts a diverse range of industries and businesses.
“Our new office is ideally located next to London Heathrow Airport – one of the busiest airports in Europe – providing excellent connectivity and a network of transport options.”
Over the last few months, the cargo-partner UK team has grown to 70 employees and the company continues to offer career opportunities from the new London base.
The company has appointed Jimi Copperwheat as area manager south and national product Manager air cargo, who will oversee operations from this office, and is looking to fill several other new positions in the coming months.
Copperwheat joins the business with over 30 years’ experience in the logistics and transport industry, bringing a wealth of expertise to these roles.
Over the course of his career, Copperwheat has held senior positions in air freight, commercial and operations and has recently transitioned to cargo-partner after serving in a similar capacity with another international logistics firm.
