Bryan Jones has joined Beaches Logistics Group, a member of Palletways, Europe’s express palletised freight network and will be working at the company’s Carlisle depot.
Beaches Logistics Group is a network of haulage and warehousing businesses with depots across the UK including Carlisle, Milton Keynes and Oxford.
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.”
Bryan 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.
