A logistics group has announced the appointment of a new customer services manager at its Carlisle depot.

Gillian Cattan has joined Beaches Logistics Group, which operates a network of haulage and warehousing businesses throughout the UK.

She will be responsible for identifying new customers while building relationships with existing clients and tracking and reporting on freight movements across the network.

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 it was launched in 2017.

It has established numerous depots across the UK and now has sites in Carlisle, Newcastle, Milton Keynes and Oxford.

Gillian said: “With over 20 years’ 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 20 new customer accounts to our books.

“In the near future there will be lots of developments coming out of the Carlisle depot, including our own general delivery service with daily runs to the south of Scotland and northern England.”
