Promotion comes at time of great expansion for the Manchester based business
Harbour International Freight have announced that Steve Swinburn, who was previously General Manager, has been promoted to UK Managing Director. The promotion comes as Harbour reaffirms its commitment to the North West economy with the opening of its new 43,000 sq.ft. custom built warehouse in Trafford Park, Taking its Manchester capacity to over 65,000 sq.ft.
The move means that Harbour’s UK, Ireland, and European freight services come together under one roof with its newest offering, Harbour Sameday, which has enhanced their dedicated courier and UK direct haulage division. The move from Eccles also adds a vastly expanded freight storage capacity, allowing access to a new customer base across the North West and the whole of the UK.
Steve commented: “I’m delighted to be leading the company through our expansion plans. We have over the past few years grown rapidly on the back on the pandemic and Brexit by offering old and new customers alike the personal touch and attention to detail that is unfortunately lacking in the marketplace.
“Growing our already strong UK network Pall-Ex services along with our own Irish Sea services further is the number one priority but we are also looking forward to expanding our European and Scandinavian groupage services in collaboration with our long-term and new additional partners through the region.”
