The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has appointed a new senior transport advisor, bringing extra support for logistics firms dealing with the Covid-19 outbreak and other challenges.
Becky Martin joins the Member Advice Centre (MAC), which provides expert advice and answers to member questions on legal, technical and operational matters, on topics such as Brexit, Covid-19, drivers’ hours, through to vehicle maintenance standards.
Martin has 12 years’ experience within retail, distribution and transport, having previously worked in advisory roles to John Lewis Partnership and M&S.
Robert Saunders, MAC manager, said: “With so many conditions changing in the market on a daily basis at the moment, it is unsurprising that we are experiencing record numbers of calls to support members during the Covid-19 outbreak. With Becky’s in-depth understanding of transport and logistics – in addition to her exceptional customer service skills – we are thrilled to have her join the team to help us assist businesses through the challenging times ahead, from Covid-19, Brexit and beyond – her arrival in the team couldn’t have come at a better time.”
