Sovereign Transport - business sales exec appt

Palletways member Sovereign Transport has hired a Hermes field manager as its new business sales executive.

Paul Hanson joins the Liverpool-based operator after three years at Hermes, where he was responsible for more than 100 self-employed couriers.

At Sovereign he will be in charge of drumming up and overseeing new business, reporting to commercial director Rachael Forshaw.

Hanson said: “It was easy to see the appeal of joining Sovereign Transport; from the vision of the managerial team to the company being a member of Palletways, which is renowned across the logistics sector for its industry-leading, game-changing technology.

“Liverpool is a thriving city with an abundance of growing businesses. This means there’s plenty of opportunities for us to showcase our services and demonstrate the commercial benefits we can bring to these businesses.”

Forshaw added: "We’re proud of our comprehensive service offering and want as many businesses as possible to know about our capabilities.

"Bringing Paul into our sales team, with his broad industry experience and endless enthusiasm, will help us to grow our order book and we couldn’t be more pleased to have someone of his calibre in the business.”
