After more than 17 years at the helm, Nick Lowe, Dachser UK’s Managing Director, has taken early retirement at the end of September. Mark Rollinson, who has previously held various management positions at Schenker and Allport Cargo Services has been roped in as his successor.
On July 2 of this year, Rollinson began a three-month induction process in advance of the handover. “I’m delighted to be joining Dachser at this time, having witnessed the organisation’s development and growth in the UK from an external viewpoint over many years,” he says. “I do see enormous potential for further growth.”
His predecessor, Nick Lowe joined Dachser’s UK subsidiary as Managing Director in May, 2001. Highlights of his tenure included the opening of branches in Dartford, Rochdale, and Bristol as well as the new logistics centre in Northampton.
“Dachser’s culture and values, the strength and quality of our network, and a loyal and hard-working team have all combined to drive our success in the UK,” Lowe said. “Despite some challenging economic conditions from time to time, we have continually increased our market share with logistics solutions tailored to our customers’ needs.”
Dachser UK was founded in 1975 and operates from four locations across the country. In 2017, its workforce numbered over 400.
