Priority Freight expands in Central Europe
Priority Freight, a leading time-critical logistics specialist, has further developed its service capabilities and operational capacity in Central Europe.
In order to support a major automotive manufacturer as they expand into Central Europe, the emergency freight solutions provider opened a new facility in Bratislava. The new office is set to have excellent transport links, being in the vicinity of Bratislava Airport which last year (2017) saw a record of 26,246 tonnes of cargo shipped. The airport has flights to 22 destinations in 16 countries, including UK, Spain and Russia.
Priority Freight sees the investment as an exciting new addition to its network, increasing local capability and capacity, as well as international access to the largest automotive market in Europe. The new office location will provide support to new and existing clients operating across Central Europe, whilst also being well placed to grow the company’s supplier base, allowing them to further enhance their ability to meet the demands of its customers.
The operation, headed up by Daniel Kubišiak, is expected to experience rapid growth during 2019. Mr Kubišiak has a wealth of experience in the logistics industry, holding senior logistics roles in both the carrier and customer side of the sector. Having worked for DSV in Slovakia for over seven years as its Air and Sea Division Manager, he moved onto Secop, the advanced compressors manufacturer, where he took the role of Global Transportation Manager – a position he held for five years.
Neal Williams, Group Managing Director at Priority Freight, commented, “The opening of the Bratislava office demonstrates the commitment that we, at Priority Freight, have to the European market, when many are having second thoughts about such investments. We have identified the needs of our clients when it comes to choosing their logistics provider, and acted accordingly to ensure their expectations are met.”
Daniel Kubišiak, General Manager, added to Mr Williams’ comments, “I’m delighted to head up the Priority Freight team in Bratislava. I’ve been following the business’ fortunes, and I’m pleased to join such an exciting and ambitious company. Though the Slovakian team is small at the moment, we have a challenging growth plan ahead of us and I can’t wait to get started.”
