New President of Freight Forwarding for UPS Europe

Michael Harrell has been named president of freight forwarding for UPS Europe.

Harrell will be responsible for the strategy, performance and revenue growth of the company’s freight forwarding services across Europe. He will report to Nando Cesarone, president of UPS Europe.

“Mike has the global perspective and industry experience needed to lead our freight forwarding business,” said Nando Cesarone. “His proven track record in leadership positions and his in-depth understanding of UPS operations will ensure he can help our customers grow their business and get their products to new customers in new markets.”

The freight forwarding unit includes sales and operations for air freight, ocean freight, and specialized transportation services.

Harrell began his career in logistics with the US-based shipping company Fritz, where he held several management positions in Belgium, Russia, and Kuwait. In 2001, he became the Middle East freight Manager based in Dubai (UAE), when UPS acquired Fritz. Two years later, Harrell moved to Madrid to become UPS Supply Chain Solutions (SCS) area manager for Southern Europe, Central Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

In 2008, he was promoted to operations manager for UPS SCS Europe, based in Milan, Italy. Two years later, in 2010, Harrell was named country manager for UPS Turkey, and in 2014 became country manager for UPS France, before assuming his current position.
