Things are really taking off for time critical logistics provider BDA (Bespoke Distribution Aviation), which has started 2014 with a new European Managing Director, as part of a focus on its wider international distribution service.
The company, based at Coventry Airport in the UK, is going through an extended period of growth, which has seen it significantly expand its in night Air and Road operations divisions with increased levels of distribution business over the past six months. Spearheading the company’s growth strategy throughout 2014 is newly appointed European Managing Director Kevin Turner who brings 25 years’ experience in the Same Day and Next Day delivery markets. Kevin’s expertise in European Air and Road express services and Warehousing Solutions will strengthen BDA’s team to grow its international presence over the next 12 months.
BDA already operates an extensive end-to end supply chain network, with airport based hubs throughout the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe, accommodating pan-European time-critical deliveries daily. Kevin Turner has been appointed to the company’s Maastricht Air-Hub in The Netherlands, to further grow the company’s overseas market presence and continue to deliver market leading customer supply chain solutions. With a lifetime of experience, having previously worked in European and UK distribution, logistics warehousing and air freight, Kevin will lead BDA’s strategy for increased growth and market share across European and International markets.
Kevin Turner said, "BDA has a great structure in place to allow it to grow its capacity throughout its UK, Ireland and European divisions. The company’s service offering is unique and tailored to every customer and this is why it is an international market leader for bespoke distribution services and supply chain solutions. The company has plans to increase its market presence further and I am excited to become an integral part of this."
The new appointment comes at an exciting time for the company, which has achieved unprecedented levels of growth not just with the acquisition of German Airline and In-night freight specialist NightExpress last year, but also by moving into new markets, after recently beginning work in the B2C sector with an established e-commerce client.
BDA operates nightly cargo flights complemented by daily road express linehaul routes, between its Coventry hub, Dublin, and Frankfurt in Germany. The five nights a week flights give customers a guaranteed overnight and early morning delivery for time-critical cargo working with sectors typically in then hi-tech IT and printing, medical equipment, materials handling equipment, agricultural machinery and automotive industries, and more recently for direct selling e-commerce businesses.
Steve Court, sales director at BDA said, "Last year was a fantastic year, during which we further established our infrastructure and platform for growth, and we are looking forward to continued growth and success in 2014. He continued: "We’re growing all the time and with Kevin heading up our European division, we will continue to offer an unrivalled service throughout Europe and add value to the supply chain markets. We are prepared for a very exciting year ahead."
