Graham Cross

Founder & Managing Director,

GXD Logistics Limited

Having spent over 30 years within the Freight Forwarding & Logistics industry working for both large and small organisations, Graham set up his own Freight Forwarding business in December 2002, starting as a sole trader above a shoe shop in Hessle with a blank sheet of paper and no promise of any business, just a belief in being able to provide an enhanced customer experience within Freight & Logistics.

The past 12 years has seen the business grow to become an established Freight Forwarding Company with its head office based in Hull and a global network of Agents.

In 2016 GXD Logistics secured a warehousing and distribution facility close to the port of Hull. This facility provides storage for clients importing products from around the world, which require storing and ad value services performing, prior to onward delivery. This facility also provides a ‘pick & pack’ offering, which supports the renewable offshore sector with PPE & Work wear.

The key asset of the business is the people employed within it, for without their commitment, drive and knowledge, the business would not be what it is today.

Our plans for the future remain ambitious with a target of growing the business to twice its current size in the next two years.
