Pall-Ex Group has appointed former Knights of Old director Carl White as warehouse and logistics director of the pallet distribution network.

White joins the executive team with 23 years of extensive experience in the logistics sector including his recent position at Knights of Old, where he was group logistics director.

White’s brief is to develop Pall-Ex Group’s Logistics 3PL division, a strategic initiative which will see the development of warehousing and logistics centres positioned near the Pall-Ex Group hub facilities with the aim of gaining a competitive advantage.

The network said that his venture, set to become operational this quarter, represents a ”significant advancement” in the company’s service offerings.

White remarked: “Joining Pall-Ex Group represents a pivotal moment in my career. The opportunity to contribute to an organisation that is at the cutting edge of logistics solutions is both inspiring and aligns perfectly with my professional ethos.

”The logistics sector is a cornerstone of global commerce, and I am committed to enhancing our operational capabilities to better serve our diverse client base.”

Turning to the challenges of his new role, White noted the relentless nature of the logistics industry as a demanding yet crucial aspect of ensuring seamless service delivery.

He added that he remains an advocate for professional development within the sector and pledged to encourage aspiring logistics professionals to embrace the diverse and dynamic opportunities the industry presents.

Barry Byers, MD of Pall-Ex Group, said: ”Carl’s appointment is a testament to our commitment to attracting top-tier talent. Our strategic direction has been developing over the past few years and the launch of this division will add competitive synergies aligned to our core business.

”This will provide added value to our shareholder members and our customers as we diversify to offer a seamless and visible solution direct from our storage centres through to the delivery point. Our warehousing and logistics activities will only support our growth trajectory and further reinforce our market position.”
