Hellmann Worldwide Logistics UK has appointed Jodi Raphael as its new Director for the European Road Freight division also known as ERF. Jodi, who has been with the company since 2006 will have the role of overseeing all operations for the ERF division.


Jodi, from Yarm in the North East brings 14 years of experience to the role.  Her previous responsibilities included freight account management prior to joining Hellmann. Since joining Hellmann eleven years ago, her role has expanded to include operational activity.

During her time at Hellmann, Jodi’s successes include ‘blazing the trail’ for more graduate caliber logistics professionals, implementing a successful Hellmann Account Manager graduate sales scheme.

“Well, it has been an exciting few years here to say the least!  The road freight team is a great team to be part of and the product has grown from strength to strength due to the ambition and drive of our staff and the customers who continue to support and partner with us on a daily basis.
