Pallet-Track has recruited former Palletline man Steve Butler as a divisional director.

Butler, who was head of network services at Palletline, is tasked with assisting the strategic growth of the Pallet-Track business and will directly support MD Nigel Parkes and operations director Lisa Burrows .

He said of his appointment:  “I’m really looking forward to being involved in the strategic planning of Pallet-Track’s future expansion.

“The network already has more than 80 members, and that’s growing steadily. I hope to establish myself within the team during the coming weeks and look forward to strengthening relationships with our existing members.”

Parkes added: “Pallet-Track has an ambitious staff who are always looking for new and innovative ways to develop, so having a new team member on board can only assist in our strategic plans for growth.”

Pallet-Track welcomed Abbey Logistics to the fold in April. It also started its new European service with Hellmann Worldwide Logistics ahead of schedule.
