Andy Nicholls
Vice President – Business Development

Andy is a member of Horizon International’s senior management team, heading Cargo Sales in both the UK and USA. His teams are responsible for generating new business supporting our key TransAtlantic tradelane.

Andy joined Horizon International in September 2013, based in our Los Angeles office, heading our US operations. He relocated back to the UK in June 2015.

Andy has worked in the freight and logistics industry for most of his working life – prior to which he worked in the manufacturing sector, focussed on international shipping. He relocated from the UK to the US in 2000, initially based in New York – then moving west to Los Angeles, where he opened 2 offices for previous employers prior to joining Horizon.

He enjoys helping clients by delivering solutions to their needs and solving problems. This element of his job gives him the most personal satisfaction. In his view, the more challenging the need; the greater the satisfaction.

In his spare time, Andy follows most sports, including football, cricket and athletics. He also enjoys driving his classic 2 seater sports car around country lanes at weekends (when the sun is shining!).




Whilst Horizon International has grown significantly over almost three decades, we have never lost sight of the importance of maintaining a personalised service.   Our team members are approachable, friendly, professional and committed.   When you call Horizon, you are connected with a real person who will be familiar with your specific requirements.
