Generation Logistics case study: Robert Cunningham, Group Operations Manager, Kinaxia


Many who join the logistics industry arrive with no prior experience of the sector, but for some, it’s a family business.

“My father was a Class One driver for over 50 years,” says Robert, “so I was brought up in and around road transport, travelling all over Europe with him during my school holidays. It ignited a passion for the industry.”  

The road was where Robert started his career too, as a driver. 

You might not find him on the road so much these days, but his current role as Group Operations Manager at Kinaxia has offered just as much experience and variety.  

“I look after the operational requirements of our General Haulage and Network divisions, supporting the Managing Director with the development and growth of the business,” he explains. 

Learning on the job was clearly something Robert picked up from his dad, too. “After GCSEs, I went straight into a modern apprenticeship studying business. This allowed me to go straight into a working environment whilst furthering my education.” 

And those skills have been bolstered ever since.  

“I currently have my Transport Manager CPC, as part of our business’s operator licence,” Robert says. “I also have my Class 1 licence, but I use my driver knowledge as a useful asset in planning now I’m office based.”
