New Reading Sales Office for Dachser

DACHSER125Northampton, 17 April, 2013 – As part of a strategy to extend its network of UK and European distribution services to all key markets in the country, Dachser UK have established a sales office for the M4 corridor and appointed two experienced business development managers to cover the region.

Gary Fitchett and Darren Phillips are both established professionals in the UK freight transport and logistics market, having a total of over fifty years’ service in the business between them.  Based at a newly-established Dachser sales office in Reading, Gary will cover central southern England while Darren is responsible for the southwest. The office is a satellite of the existing regional sales team based at Dachser’s Dartford branch.

In welcoming the two new recruits Nick Lowe, Dachser’s UK MD said, “Our strategy to create a steady and sustainable expansion of our business in the UK, through both acquisition and organic growth, continues.  In the north west, our purchase of JA Leach Transport and the integration of its business to create our new Rochdale branch has gone well.  Now, with the addition of these two highly experienced and motivated account managers to our already well-established southern regional sales team, our plans to further develop our business in the south will take a further step forward.”

Dachser offers a comprehensive door-to-door European delivery service for UK exporters and importers, connecting its three branches in the UK,
