UK forwarder Davies Turner has made several additions to the board of directors at its surface freight and logistics subsidiary Davies Turner & Co.

Head of ocean, Tony Cole, who leads on Davies Turner & Co’s ocean freight forwarding services, has joined Darren McLaughlan who heads up the subsidiary’s operations in Scotland, on the board, along with Jason Edwards, who is head of freight services for the company in South West England.

Cole joined Davies Turner in 1990 as ocean import manager and subsequent positions have also seen him head up the company’s Far East trade lanes.

McLaughlan joined Davies Turner in 2008 and is branch manager at Davies Turner & Co’s freight and logistics centre in Cumbernauld.

Edwards joined Davies Turner in 2000, and in addition to the Bristol sites, also supports Davies Turner & Co’s operations at its Southampton and Bridgend offices.

Davies Turner Group chairman Philip Stephenson said: “We have every confidence in the ability of the additional directors at operational level within our surface freight subsidiary to help the existing board to inject new ideas and energy to take Davies Turner & Co to the next stage in its development and expansion.”
