Rantle moves from Palletline where he was executive director of sales and marketing for UK and Europe. Prior to that role, he spent 30 years at TNT, most recently as vice president of sales and marketing for EMEA, Asia Pacific and Americas.
Gefco said Rantle would be bringing a wealth of experience to his new role, which would further support Gefco’s network expansion in the UK, noting his strong Pan European and international experience in road, sea and air freight logistics.
“We are hugely excited to have Martin on board and he is a strong addition to the team here in the UK,” said Tristan Balayn, Gefco UK’s managing director. “His experience and knowledge complements our business and strategic focus as we strengthen our position in the automotive and logistics industry and continue to expand our presence in the UK.”
Rantle added: “I am proud to be taking on this new role at Gefco particularly at this key stage with opportunities for expansion across all divisions. This role brings exciting challenges and I look forward to working closely with the team to strengthen our client relationships and establish new ones as we implement our strategy to achieve strong and sustainable growth.”
