Priority Freight Opens New Spanish Office
Priority Freight, a leading global provider of contingency logistics solutions, has strengthened its position in the European market by opening a new office in Madrid, Spain. This provides a base to better serve local clients, by adding speed and flexibility to their supply chains, as well as direct access to a global transport and manufacturing hub.
Priority Freight’s Spanish team is led by Santiago Tejedo, who brings a wealth of freight experience from his time as Airfreight Manager at Altius Spain, as well as the Renault Group. Joining the team are several experienced members from the UK offices, including the Spanish air freight specialists. The Spanish office is also recruiting to find local logistics experts to join the new operation that will be supported by Priority Freight’s global network.
Neal Williams, Group Managing Director at Priority Freight, commented: “Spain is the second-largest vehicle manufacturing country in Europe. We feel now is the right time to establish a permanent home in the country, especially with Brexit potentially causing our clients to make changes to their supply chains. Regardless of the referendum results, we will continue to deliver the goods, because that is what we do, and the Madrid office will help us to do this.
“As the main hub for the Iberian Peninsula, Madrid provides the ideal location to serve our clients by land and air. With added flexibility and speed, we are able to provide first-class services from on board courier to charter delivery, thanks to the new office.”
As a strategic partner for its clients, the company’s mission is to provide the most rapid, cost-effective and reliable door-to-door logistics solutions – often in emergency and crisis scenarios. Positioned in the very heart of the cargo terminal at Madrid- Barajas International Airport (MAD), the new Priority Freight office includes access to a customs warehouse that covers 1,000 square meters and is fully equipped with state-of-the-art X-ray technology and a highly-trained explosive detection canine team.
The logistics solutions provided by Priority Freight are tailored to the needs of each customer – helping to lower supply chain costs and, through the use of advanced technologies, provide high levels of visibility and traceability at every stage of shipment. Priority Freight’s service enables customers to maximise the flexibility and responsiveness of supply chains, allowing them to focus on their core business.
Priority Freight operates globally, 24/7, all year round with multiple offices based across Europe. Company revenues exceeded €65m during the 2014/5 financial year. In 2015, the company completed over 100,000 expedited shipments.
