Brian Lafferty joins Buffaload Logistics as the Cambridgeshire-based company is poised to double in size over the next four years. He will assume responsibility for the company’s 65 double deck reefers and 35 Urban & 13.6m trailer fleet, tractor units and courier express vehicles.
Lafferty brings a wealth of transport and logistics ‘know-how’ built up over a long and successful career in the wider transport industry. From driver to transport management, spanning numerous commercial transport businesses, he has gained a detailed knowledge of compliance management, driver training and road traffic expertise. Lafferty has also spent a number of years as a traffic examiner with VOSA and more recently has managed his own transport consultancy – all skills which will come to the fore as he takes responsibility for the broad scope of Buffaload’s diverse national operation.
“This company sets itself apart because of its high standards, skill base and ability to prescribe cost effective transport and handling solutions to a cross section of businesses in the cold chain”, says Lafferty. “Our mission is to build on these attributes, whilst keeping a close eye on regulatory issues and all round best-practice.”
