Carlisle logistics specialist appoints new general manager

A leading UK transport and third-party logistics specialist has continued to invest in its team with the appointment of a new general manager.

Bryan Jones has joined Beaches Logistics Group, a member of Palletways, Europe’s largest and fastest growing express palletised freight network and will be working at the company’s Carlisle depot.

As part of his role, Bryan will be responsible for retaining and building relationships with new and existing customers and developing the company’s new customer care team.

Commenting on the appointment, Beaches managing director, Jack Sims said: “We are delighted to welcome Bryan to the team as he brings a wealth of industry and local experience. His appointment is the next step in driving the depot forward following the significant investment into the fleet and equipment over the last twelve months. Bryan is full of fresh ideas and will be focused on identifying new opportunities for the business.”

Commenting, Jason added: “This is fantastic moment to join the Beaches team as there is so much opportunity for growth and development. I started out as a white van driver 28 years ago, moved into pallets, and then management. I started at the bottom and worked my way up, but I think that’s important as I’m out there getting stuck in and have already secured several new customers who are confident about the service we can provide.”

Beaches customer service team will be expanding later this year with a new customer service manager joining the company’s Carlisle depot. This new position will develop existing customers

as well as work with Bryan to identifying and target new customers. This underlines a period of growth for the depot which has also seen the recruitment of new drivers over the past few months.

Beaches Logistics Group is a network of dependable haulage and warehousing businesses with depots across the UK including Carlisle, Milton Keynes and Oxford.

The company is one of over 115 independent transport providers that are part of Palletways’ UK network. They benefit from shared expertise and resources from within the group to deliver consignments of palletised freight to market faster and more cost effectively than ever before.   The Palletways Group comprises 400 depots and 20 hub operations, through which it provides collection and distribution services across 20 European countries, including the UK.
