Our UK Directors
Howard Jupp Chief Executive
Howard is married with 4 children, and been in the freight industry for over 30 years. He started as an accounts clerk, moving through the import and export departments learning all facets of the trade and then moved into sales before taking the plunge in 1991 by starting a UK branch, with Daryl Hill, for an American company. Having built that company to over £100m revenue, in 1997 Daryl and Howard took a bigger leap and started their own logistics company. Mapcargo today has a capable team of senior managers, allowing Howard and Daryl to focus on building overseas relationships by meeting International partners regularly, and generally building the company through sales and acquisition. In his spare time Howard enjoys Rugby and golf
