Operations Director appointed to support further growth

Blacksmith Freight has appointed Angela Blackburn as Operations Director to support the company through its next stage of expansion.

Angela was previously Director at Barker and Hood where she worked for 9 years.  She brings with her a wealth of experience ranging from imports, operations, sales and exports, as well as direct experience leading a team operationally.

Blacksmith Freight’s team has more than doubled its employee headcount during the pandemic as it seeks to accommodate the increasing demand for imports and exports throughout the pandemic and service new clients.

Global CEO, Roger Black commented: “Angela’s experience in both operational change and global logistics will be crucial to ensure effective growth across all aspects of the business as we broaden our geographical reach and increase our employee numbers. We are delighted to have her on board and greatly value the experience she brings.”

Angela will work closely with Paul Evans, Managing Director to strengthen the company’s global forwarding capabilities worldwide, particularly in light of Brexit, and continue to provide high service and value to Blacksmith’s customers.
