5 Minutes with Francesca Hughes

Meet Francesca, our Graduate Trainee currently specialising in all things import and export, as part of her placement in our Freight Forwarding team.

We put our ‘5 minutes with’ questions to her….


1 . What do you like most about working in logistics

Working in logistics means there are new challenges to solve each day and no two days are ever the same! I love building logistical solutions by collaborating with my colleagues and our customers. I am currently working in the Freight Forwarding team where there is new information and requirements to be learnt every day. Working with freight forwarders across Europe to create solutions for our customers has provided me with insight into the world of customs and the challenges that come with it.

2. What do you do to wind-down after a busy day at work?

I will usually make my dinner, watch tv and get an early night – I love my sleep!  I’m more of a morning person. You’ll find me at the gym or the pool at 06:00 most mornings.


3. At 8 years old, what job did you want to do when you grew up?

I wanted to become an army officer.

4. What is your favourite food?


5. What is your favourite film?
