Allport Cargo Services, which recently rebranded and adopted its new name in celebration of its 50th anniversary, is to reshape its executive team with the appointment of joint group MDs from April.

Danny Clayton, MD of the supply chain division, has been named as joint MD of Allport Cargo Services alongside Jerry Gray, who has performed the role of MD since the company’s merger with Cargo Services in December 2010.

John Lau, owner of Allport Cargo Services, said: “Their coming together is a natural progression, combining Danny’s vision and determination to grow the business, together with Jerry’s vast experience of the running of it.”

The firm’s customers include Sainsbury’s and retailers Asos and House of Fraser.
