David Breeze, Palletforce network development director, said: “We are delighted that Chris has joined us, especially at this exciting time when our network continues to strengthen and deliver clear competitive advantages for our members.

“He has considerable experience in pallet networks at a senior level and a proven track record of building lasting relationships with colleagues and members.

“Our network development strategy has focused on strengthening service, and we have been adding quality new members in numbers over the last 12 months, as well as identifying like-minded companies both as potential business partners or potential acquisitions.

“As a further addition to our talented management team, Chris will play a central role in keeping Palletforce and its membership ahead of the competition.”

Dennigan added: “Over the last 20 years I’ve watched Palletforce grow to become the leading network in the sector, and as part of EV Cargo it is only going to get stronger.

“But it’s a network that has been built on the quality of its membership, and I’m looking forward to the challenges and opportunities of working with members, old and new, as it continues to grow.”
