Beaches Logistics Group, which operates a network of haulage and warehousing businesses throughout the UK, has announced the appointment of Gillian Cattan as customer service manager.
Gillian joins the team at the Carlisle depot and will be responsible for identifying new customers while further building relationships with existing ones and tracking and reporting on freight movements across the network to ensure a first-class service.
The Beaches Logistics Group, which is a member of Palletways, Europe’s largest and fastest growing express palletised freight network, has gone from strength to strength since launching in 2017. Since then, it has established numerous depots across the UK and now has sites in Carlisle, Newcastle, Milton Keynes and Oxford.
Commenting, Gillian said: “With over twenty years of experience in the transport and distribution industries, I’m thrilled to have established myself at Beaches. My previous roles have ranged from garage and service bookings at a dealership to ordering and maintenance for warehouses and distribution centres, but this is my most exciting yet.
“I’m determined to spot opportunities with new and existing customers, and establish strong relationships based on consistently high service and loyalty. As a result, we’ve already added twenty new customer accounts to our books.
“In the near future, there’ll be lots of developments coming out of the Carlisle depot. One of which includes our own general delivery service, with daily runs to the South of Scotland and North England. It’s an exciting time for everyone at Beaches!”
