Mark Simmonds

Leaving school in 1975 Mark commenced work as a Junior Clerk on the German Import section at Constantine Transport Ltd, in Stratford, East London; here Mark gained his basic transport knowledge.

In 1978 with sound experience in freight forwarding, Mark moved to Haniel Spedition who were an up and coming company and quickly progressed from Import Clerk to Section Supervisor and finally Department Manager responsible for all freight shipments from Germany to the UK.

In 1991 Mark moved on to Ferryline Trailers Ltd, in Sandwich Kent, who provided a comprehensive transport operation between UK, Germany, and UK. Here Mark was able to broaden his experience further.

1993 saw an opportunity arise to work as an Operations Manager, alongside some good friends in their own business venture based in Milton Keynes, namely Bakro International Transport Ltd.

In 2004 Mark together with his wife established a successful express same day delivery service covering the UK, which he developed to a high level. Over this period of time Bakro International Transport Ltd had seen their business expand and with upcoming changes they began discussions with Mark to integrate the two businesses and once again work together. The experience and knowledge Mark has gained throughout his career has been invaluable and since his return he has helped the company establish a firm transport base. Mark is now the Director at the Milton Keynes facility and has additional responsibility for all the companys’ warehouse and storage facilities.
