Collective industry experience will ensure that the next generation succeeds and continue to grow the business. 

Maritime Transport, the UK’s leading provider of integrated road and rail solutions, has strengthened its senior management team with a series of internal promotions and organisational changes, positioning the Company for its next phase of development.

Alex Williams and Tom Williams have assumed greater leadership roles as Deputy Chief Executive Officers, continuing with the longer-term succession plan. Alex and Tom will report directly to Simon Smart, Chief Executive Officer.

John Bailey will head up the newly-created Intermodal division as Managing Director, bringing together the Container businesses of Road, Rail, and Terminals.

Craig Moore, who has a wealth of experience in retail distribution, is promoted to Managing Director – Distribution. Prior to joining Maritime in 2022, Craig spent fourteen years at Tesco as Supply Chain and Logistics Manager, where he established a number of distribution networks in the UK and Eastern Europe. In 2017, he joined DP World as Head of Supply Chain, working with the leading retailers, manufacturers, shipping lines, and third-party logistics companies.

John Williams, Group Executive Chairman, Maritime Transport: 

‘This is an exciting time for the Company as we deal with the post-pandemic economy and continue the journey of transitioning the industry as we move towards net zero. In any business, succession should always be at the forefront of the current leadership’s thoughts, and we have been working on the next phase and development of our senior management team for some time. Our collective industry experience will ensure that the next generation succeeds and continue to grow the business in line with the opportunities that we have in front of us.’
