Graham Wall announced as UKWA Vice Chairman

Graham Wall, Commercial Director of PD Ports rapidly expanding Teesport facility, has been appointed Vice Chairman of the United Kingdom Warehousing Association (UKWA). He will work closely with the Associations current National Chairman, Derrick Potter, for the next year. In keeping with the UKWAs tradition, Graham Wall will succeed Derrick Potter as UKWAs National Chairman in 2009.

Graham Wall commented: The UKWA has a long and proud history and I am honoured and excited to be given the chance to contribute to the UK logistics industrys most influential trade association.

Roger Williams, Chief Executive Officer of UKWA, commented: There are fewer and fewer good men and women who are prepared to give the time to help run trade associations, so we are delighted to be able to draw upon the services of someone of Grahams caliber. I am sure he will be a tremendous asset to our organization.

Graham Wall joined PD Ports in June 2006 as Commercial Director - Containers and since his appointment he has been closely involved in working with retailers and industrial importers to secure alternative supply chain solutions using Northern ports operated by PD Ports.  He has worked to establish the idea of port-centric logistics within PD Ports business, and has played a pivotal role in the development of the port in line with the approved Northern Gateway Container Terminal project at Teesport.

Founded in 1944, UKWA has over 600 members providing storage and third party logistics services, and represents the industry to both commerce and government.
