Chacon takes the reins at Gefco UK

[ January 19, 2021   //   ]

Logistics specialist GEFCO UK has appointed Cédric Chacon as its new managing director.

He has spent the last 20 years developing in contract logistics services within the Group and has held various operational roles in the overland division in Dijon, Marseille and Lyon.

In 2010, he joined the UK team to focus primarily on the overland network before taking on responsibility for the warehousing and reusable packaging business units in 2015.

In his new role, he will also take on the responsibility of leading the UK’s Air & Sea division and drive greater integration between the two businesses.

He commented: “I’m immensely proud to be stepping into this role and continuing the great work of my predecessor. This year will see us build a truly integrated logistics service offering between Air & Sea and the core UK business and develop our range of added value services across our network.

“Brexit, new mobility and electrification will have a significant impact on our product offering over the covering months and years and we are well-placed to capture a major part of these markets.”

“Crucially, we will continue to put our employees first. GEFCO’s people are its greatest asset and it is only through their efforts that we can continue to fulfil our ambitious growth plans and provide an excellent customer experience.”
