Portico brings in Audrey Emmet to drive services expansion further
Riding the wave of investment Portsmouth-based logistics provider and cargo terminal Portico has set further sights on expansion. To do so, the company has enlisted the services of Audrey Emmet, appointing her as the logistics business development manager.
Emmet is set to put its 15 years of experience in the industry, working in both general and specialist freight forwarding sectors, to build further on Portico’s established customs, warehousing and cargo handling services. Emmet is tasked with helping Portico develop haulage, freight forwarding and warehousing opportunities so customers have a seamless logistics journey.
Portico is an international port that manages a significant share of the bananas imported into the UK. Alongside their port services, the company has diversified into the haulage industry and currently possesses eight HGVs. Moreover, Portico has recently built a new general cargo warehouse that offers up to 50,000 square feet of storage space.
This is in addition to the specialist customs agency and freight forwarding experts who make sure road, rail, air and sea freight reach their destination, handling complex customs and transport requirements.
Commenting on her appointment Audrey Emmett, Portico’s business development manager for logistics said, “Portico has already successfully established itself as a port operator, and following the recent investment is in a great position to expand its expertise into the wider logistics area. Because of this, it’s a really exciting time for me to join the team.”
“We can take care of the full logistics package, from ship to shore, planes to places, rail to road, wherever in the world we will make sure goods arrive where they’re needed and on time,” she said.
