Geodis Wilson Spain appoints new MD

GEODIS Wilson Spain has appointed Alain Reich (right) as its new managing director. Based in Madrid, Reich will be responsible for freight forwarding, as well as developing and expanding the business in the future.

Reich has previously worked for Air France Cargo, Bax Global and Kühne & Nagel.

Despite Spain’s freight markets being badly hit by the global economic downturn, Reich remains confident: “We are very well established in Spain, and we are well known for our expertise in handling hi-tech goods, textiles and industry. I will be pursuing new lines of business, particularly industrial projects for which we do have a very high level of know-how and logistics operations in markets, such as the Far East, South America and Morocco, which is a very important market right on our doorstep.

“I will be working with my colleagues in other countries to make Spain one of our priority areas within the network”, he added.

Geodis Wilson is the freight management division of the global Geodis group.
