OL International Holdings LLC (OL International) today announced the launch of OL UK. The company’s newest office is located in the English seaside town of Felixstowe, the largest container port in the United Kingdom. The office will be led by Paula Bellamy, who adds responsibility for growing business in the UK and Europe to her role as managing director of OL Dubai, which she opened for the company in 2016. Ms. Bellamy will continue to oversee OL Dubai with Cherryline Feliciano now serving as general manager for day-to-day operations.
“When we opened OL Dubai nearly five years ago we had high expectations – Paula, Cherryline, and their team dramatically exceeded them by not only driving growth for OL throughout the region, but strengthening customer relationships and experience,” said Alan Baer, president of OL International. “This past year has underscored how vital experienced leadership and local expertise are when it comes to finding solutions for the most challenging circumstances, and we know Paula and Cherryline will continue to deliver for our customers.”
OL UK joins the company’s growing global NVOCC network of nearly 20 offices, many of which are part of the Oceanwide Logistics Global Network. This integrated network allows OL International to deliver powerful and seamless end-to-end service with representatives on the ground in over 140 countries.
“I am thrilled to return home to Felixstowe, because it not only marks the beginning of our effort to grow in the UK and Europe, but also signals how much we have achieved in Dubai,” said Ms. Bellamy. “Cherryline’s ability to structure the right solutions for clients, particularly managing complexities such as the free zone and impact of the pandemic have been examples of her leadership and commitment to our staff, partners, and customers.”
