Chris Welch

Commercial & Operations Director at Welch's Transport Ltd

As Commercial & Operations Director at Welch’s Transport Ltd, I’m invested in paving the way for Cambridge’s future distribution and supply chain solutions, helping to meet the targets set out in the UK’s transport decarbonisation plan and delivering a pathway to a net zero freight and logistics service for the Greater Cambridge community.

Working for the family logistics firm, I hold the torch representing the 4th generation! While our family values and friendly approach to business has brought us to the successful place we’re currently in, I’m always keen to push the company forward and grow. That’s why I’m so passionate about Welch’s Transport Ltd’s potential to lead the way in modern, sustainable logistics and working collaboratively with emerging technologies and supply chain solutions.

I’m a certified CPC Transport Manager with qualifications in Dangerous Goods Movement (ADR), and additional accreditations including IOSH Managing Safety… and a full Class 1 HGV Licence to keep my finger on the pulse!
