Clugston Distribution Services recently launched a new Global Logistics division which forms part of an extensive review of its £17m turnover business.
The new Global Logistics division has been created to supplement its existing operations to provide a complete package of global supply chain solutions throughout the UK, Europe and the rest of the world, from national and international distribution through to warehousing, pick, pack and order fulfilments, and will form an integral part of the Clugston Distribution international growth plan.
To support the establishment of the new division, which is designed to drive the next phase of expansion, Clugston Distribution has also made a pair of senior appointments to further strengthen its well established bulk fuel distribution and general distribution teams.
James Overfield, a long standing member of the Clugston Distribution team, has been promoted to the position of Bulk Fuel Transport Manager. He will oversee and develop the existing regional, national and international bulk fuel distribution business, which has grown rapidly over the last seven years to become one of the top fuel logistics companies in the UK.
With an ever expanding number of fuel customers ranging from supermarkets, ship operators, vehicle manufacturers, as well as independent petrol stations and fuel suppliers across the UK and Europe, the appointment will ensure the division remains focused on providing an exceptional level of service to its customers, whilst positioning the business for further anticipated strategic growth as demand increases.
In 2018 alone, the division delivered another record result of over 407 million litres of fuel, the highest figure since the company expanded into bulk fuel distribution in 2012 and now operates from three strategic locations in Billingham in the North East, Scunthorpe in Lincolnshire and Upper Broughton in the East Midlands.
To support the increased demand and activity, Matt Hales who joined Clugston Distribution in 2014 as a Fuel planner, has been appointed as Quest Manager. Mr. Hales will be responsible for the businesses’ Quality, Environmental (Health) Safety and Training matters, managing processes to ensure Clugston maintain and improve the quality of products and services in line with customers’ requirements.
He will also be responsible for supporting efforts to expand the businesses’ geographical reach and technical capabilities and managing Clugston Distribution’s existing internal professional training programmes.
Tim Doggett, director of Clugston Distribution, said: “Despite challenging times in several of our key sectors, as a business we continue to grow and deliver for our customers. These internal appointments, combined with the introduction of a new Global Logistics division, are critical to planning for further anticipated strategic growth as demand increases for our range of services both in the UK and internationally
“These internal promotions demonstrate the strength, experience and capabilities of the Clugston Distribution team. I am confident the depth and breadth of James’ and Matt’s collective knowledge and experience in transport and logistics will be invaluable to us, as we continue to grow the business and expand into new markets.”
