Andrew Blundell is Irizar (UK)’s new Managing Director

Andrew Blundell brings over 25 years of experience in the transport and logistics sectors to the post. He was most recently Transport Development Director at leading British logistics company Bibby Distribution, but also has specific coach-industry experience from his time as Operations Director at Alfa Travel of Chorley. Other famous names on his CV include XPO/Norbert Dentressangle, Isotrak and Royal Mail. His experience spans the operational, commercial and strategic spheres.

Andrew said: “I am excited to be joining such a highly-professional organisation as Irizar. The company’s values and ethics align with my own principles and approach to business.

“This is clearly a challenging and exciting time to be joining the industry. Economic, political, environmental, and now health issues are all having an impact on the day to day reality of business which creates a challenging backdrop for operators and manufacturers alike. However, by understanding the challenges our customers face, we can navigate the short-term disruptions together, and through a collaborative, partnership approach grow together as the UK enters a new and exciting decade.”
