Veitch becomes FTA president

Ian Veitch, managing director of Yusen Logistics UK, has taken over as as president of the Freight Transport Association.
He takes over from Stewart Oades who steps down after completing a four year term as FTA President.
Veitch became chief executive of NYK’s merged UK logistics businesses in 2005 and in 2007 was appointed to the Board of Corporate Officers of NYK Group in Japan, the first European to do so.
His responsibilities increased and diversified in 2011 with the merger of Yusen Air & Sea and NYK Logistics, forming the new Yusen Logistics UK.
He has been a member of the FTA Board since 2008 and is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport.
He said: “Stewart leaves behind him an outstanding legacy within FTA for which I am deeply indebted to him. I am looking forward to working with my board colleagues and the executive team in pursuing the best interests of our members and promoting our industry as a vital part of our society and our economy.”
