Former TNT UK and Ireland managing director Alistair Cochrane is to join Parcelforce Worldwide as operations director on 25 April.

Cochrane left TNT in 2014 and served as interim project director at support services company Amey.

He was with TNT for almost three decades in a variety of roles, serving as MD for four years before being replaced by Marianne Culver.

Gary Simpson, MD at Parcelforce Worldwide, said: “Alistair brings with him a great deal of experience from other high-profile roles he has held in the express parcels industry.”
