The Canal & River Trust has appointed David Quarmby CBE as chairman of its Freight Advisory Group to help establish the trust’s policy on inland waterway freight and provide strategic advice to the executive management on freight issues.

Quarmby’s career has included spells as managing director of London Buses, and managing director of Sainsbury’s responsible for supply chain. “While it is leisure and recreation that underpins much of the canal and rivers’ renaissance, we should not forget that the waterways may still provide a viable, affordable and greener alternative to road transport in certain circumstances, particularly on the larger more commercial waterways,” he said.

Other member of the Freight Advisory Group include:

Mike Garratt, managing director, MDS Transmodal

Mark Grimshaw-Smith, head of rail and sea freight operations for Cemex UK

James Hookham, managing director, policy & communications from the Freight Transport Association

David Lowe, chairman of the Commercial Boat Operators Association

Dr Heather McLoughlin, director of the business school at Canterbury Christ Church University

Ian Wainwright, road freight programme manager at Transport for London
