FTA names Zoe McLernon as multimodal policy manager

The UK’s Freight Transport Association (FTA) has appointed Zoe McLernon as multimodal policy manager, a newly created role intended to “strengthen FTA’s position as the only business organisation representing all aspects of the UK logistics sector”.

McLernon has joined FTA’s 17-strong policy team and will speak on behalf of the trade association’s multimodal members to stakeholders and government.

Alex Veitch, FTA’s head of multimodal policy, observed: “FTA’s membership is growing larger and more varied each year – we now have 18,000 member businesses across the logistics spectrum – so it is important our policy team reflects this diversity.

“With her extensive experience in UK transport policy, Zoe is perfectly placed to grow FTA’s influence within the multimodal space.

“Her appointment will cement FTA’s position as the only business organisation representing all aspects of the logistics sector: rail, road, sea and air, as well as buyers of freight services.”

McLernon added: “With FTA’s reputation as the most influential business organisation in the logistics sector, I am confident that, in partnership with the wider policy team, we can deliver real change for our members.”

FTA represents members from the UK’s road, rail, sea and air industries, as well as the buyers of freight services such as retailers and manufacturers.
