Cold storage specialist Yearsley has hired Mark Haslam as head of logistics to oversee its national network of 12 cold stores and a fleet of more than 300 temperature-controlled vehicles.
Haslam has more than 20 years’ experience in the sector, with Wincanton, TDG and, more recently, as managing director for the UK transport operations of Suttons Group.
Yearsley chief Harry Yearsley said: “Yearsley Group is responding to the needs of both manufacturing clients and retail customers by implementing a strategy that increases efficiency by improving consolidation and cutting waste delivery miles. Mark has a strong track record in the sector and we have brought him on board to spearhead this programme.”
One of the first tasks will be to implement a new fleet management system which will provide additional control over the response time and flexibility of collections and deliveries.”
