2023 is set to be a big year for Baxter Freight with ambitious growth plans and a recruitment drive that will take us to a £50 million turnover this year. To achieve these aspirations a brand new level of Management has been created to drive expansion and shape the strategy. The newly appointed Associate Directors will be responsible for all areas of the business from Sales, Finance, Operations, and Account Management, they will be pivotal in the evolution of our brand.
The team has all had such an impact on the success of Baxter Freight over the years. Previous experiences and knowledge of working within the wider logistics sector, customs and even the RAF have shaped the direction of the teams they lead.

Baxter Freight is focused on being an employer of choice in Nottingham. We are committed to the personal development of our people and we always strive to promote from within. Two of our new Associate Directors joined Baxter Freight, during the start-up in 2014, newly graduated and with all the enthusiasm to make their mark.
Dan Myers, Associate Director Account Management, says:
“It is fantastic to be able to continue my journey at this dynamic and forward-thinking logistics business. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to become an Associate Director and that my contribution over the years has been recognised.
Baxter Freight is a brilliant place to work and gives opportunities for personal development and growth for anyone who wants to be a market innovator in the logistics sector. I am looking forward to the coming years pushing our business to be a market leader and to be the most aspirational place in Nottingham to build a career.”
Logistics has faced many challenges in the last few years, with Brexit and changing customs, creating a burden for businesses wishing to trade throughout Europe. The entrepreneurial mindset of our team, including our new Associate Directors, was instrumental in supporting businesses to continue trading without disrupting their supply chains.
Lucy Adesina, Associate Director, Key Accounts says:
“I have learned so much since joining Baxter Freight. One of my highlights has been supporting one of the largest UK retail brands with their European trade, especially getting them Brexit ready and still being able to achieve next day delivery into Germany despite all the additional challenges with customs. I love working with our customers and having the opportunity to work with some incredible brands. It’s fantastic being part of a Company that promotes our development and I am really grateful and excited for the opportunity”
