Allport strengthens airfreight team

Allport Cargo Services has brought in Martin Brown and Sean Smith to strengthen the senior management team of its Airfreight Division, following the decision of David Ward to retire.

Ward will step down as airfreight operations director in June 2015 following 42 years with the company.

Brown will become airfreight operations director upon Ward’s retirement. He joins ACS Airfreight following eight years with DHL Global Forwarding, having also held executive positions at BAX Global.

Smith is joining ACS from Kerry Logistics and will take the post of business development director at ACS Airfreight.

Steve Williams, executive director at Allport Cargo Services’ Airfreight Division, said: “Martin and Sean are welcome additions to the team and I am looking forward to working alongside them both as we take Allport forward to the next level. I would also like to take this opportunity to personally thank David Ward for his substantial contribution to the business and wish him well for his retirement.”
