Dachser has appointed Gerry Ruffell, business development manager to target its strategic markets in North Africa. He will be responsible for the development of Dachser UK’s activities in its key markets in Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria.
Ruffell began his career as a salesman in the UK at Kuehne + Nagel, and has since held a number of positions at global companies including Danzas, Geologistics and Seawheel.
Dachser has been established in North African markets for 25 years. The region is currently attracting new business, particularly in the clothing and textiles industries.
Ruffell said: “The market is tough generally, but these countries seem to be bucking the economic downturn. Dachser is in a very strong position to help shippers make the most of this expanding market.”
