Logistics BusinessNew Managing Director for Double Deck Trailer Innovator

Transdek UK has appointed Paul Avery to the new role of Managing Director (MD) – Trailers as the company continues to expand its innovative double deck trailer operations to meet increasing demand.

Avery (pictured) joins Transdek from Montracon, a manufacturer of refrigerated, dry-freight and flat semi-trailers, where he was also MD. Prior to this he worked from 1999 to 2015 at Schmitz Cargobull, a German trailer and truck bodies manufacturer, progressing from Engineering Manager to MD.

With a wealth of experience covering more than 35-years in commercial vehicle design, engineering and manufacturing, in addition to business management, Avery will be responsible for increasing sales of Transdek double deck trailers and developing trailer manufacturing at the company’s Harworth site. This will involve driving output with a longer-term view of establishing a new facility dedicated to trailer production.

Avery said of his appointment: “I am very excited by the vision of Transdek founder Mark Adams, regarding changing the double deck and single deck markets offering a complete logistics solution. All of Transdek’s products deliver such a speedy return on investment for customers, through substantial operational cost savings. The company is an innovator, not a follower, and as an engineer this provides me with a very unique opportunity.”

The company has also restructured its senior management team, with Sales Director Leon Butler promoted to the new position of MD of Modular Loading Solutions and Mark Adams, FCLIT, becoming Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
