DG International sets sights on air freight growth with new appointment


Global logistics provider DG International has announced plans to invest in its air freight services with the appointment of Laura Odell as its Head of Airfreight.

Odell will drive forward the company's air freight department, focusing initially on expanding the team with specialist skill sets in order to develop and enhance DG International's suite of services to its customers.

Odell brings with her a proven ability at developing air freight offerings within logistics companies, having worked in the industry for over 24 years. She joins DG International from ZenCargo, where she was primarily responsible for expanding its air network strategy.

As Head of Airfreight, Odell will support DG International in securing a strong global network of partners and seamless processes backed by the company’s digital supply chain platform, Horizon, to deliver excellence in customer service and greater visibility.  

Speaking on her recent appointment, Laura said: “Joining the DG International team is an exciting challenge for me as the business continues on its growth journey. It's refreshing to be a part of a team that embraces change, innovation and is committed to providing the best service possible to its customers. The existing air freight offering provides me with a strong base to support my focus on refining and enhancing our solution, whilst ensuring it complements our other shipping solutions across road, rail and ocean.” 

Ryan Lucas, Chief Executive at DG International added: “With the introduction of Laura to the team, we are confident that our ambition to develop and grow our air freight solutions will solidify our full-service freight offering. She has already implemented a number of strategic additions and I’m looking forward to working with her as we continue to grow DG International.”
