FTA MAC manager Robert Saunders said: “The FTA MAC has established itself as the authority on all aspects of logistics. With so many conditions changing in the market on a daily basis at the moment, it is unsurprising that we are experiencing record numbers of calls to support members during the COVID-19 outbreak.

“With Becky’s in-depth understanding of transport and logistics – in addition to her exceptional customer service skills – we are thrilled to have her join the team to help us assist businesses through the challenging times ahead, from COVID-19, Brexit and beyond – her arrival in the team couldn’t have come at a better time.”
