August 17 - DSV Road Ltd has appointed Marc Coleman to support its activities in the automotive industry in the UK.
The automotive industry currently represents the largest export sector within the UK, with estimated turnovers for this year expected to exceed last year's GBP69.5 billion.
Coleman explains that countries such as Japan are putting their faith in the UK market, with big brands including Nissan and Honda currently investing heavily in existing plants with new model builds. This investment and confidence is fuelling a period of strong growth for the UK industry.
Alongside this, high quality companies such as Bentley, McLaren and Aston Martin help to maintain the UK's reputation within the industry.
DSV Road Ltd transports a range of components for trucks and cars from more than 300 Tier 1 suppliers across the UK and consolidates them at its Automotive Cross dock facility in Tamworth for onward distribution. From Tamworth, the DSV team then provides the line-haul transportation to Poland, Sweden, Belgium and France.
