AGI Global Logistics has opened two new offices in Cheadle and Winchester, taking its total number of offices to 18. The opening of the two offices allows the company to increase its geographical reach in the North West and South of England.
The new Cheadle office specialises in road and sea freight and container rail solutions. It is close to the M56 and M60, 40 miles from Liverpool and five miles from Manchester Airport.
The team is led by Tom Wright, who joined the company in November. Wright brings years of logistics experience to his new role, having held senior management positions in a number of global logistics companies, including SEKO Logistics and NNR Global Logistics.
Announcing the launch of the Cheadle office, the company said the new location cements its commitment to offering logistics solutions in the North of England, and complements its offices in Immingham and Newcastle.
AGI Global Logistic’s new Winchester office is run by Phillip Hoare, who also joined AGI Global Logistics last month. He brings his experience in freight forwarding and global logistics to the new post, having spent eight years at DSV, where his most recent post was as strategic sales manager.
The company said it opened the new office in Winchester because of its proximity to the south coast of England, with the Port of Southampton 15 miles away, and road links via the M3 and the M27 close by. AGI Global Logistics offers freight transportation and storage services, including customs clearance, packing and chamber documentation.
