Established Logistics Business Marks Major Milestone

Denholm Logistics Group recently marked a leadership milestone, with the appointment of Alan Platt as Managing Director, following the retirement of his predecessor, Niall Denholm.

Denholm Logistics Group is a division of family-owned diversified business, the Denholm Group. Its subsidiaries are well-established in the logistics and port services sectors, providing freight forwarding, warehousing and transportation solutions, the short-sea shipping of timber products, and the port agency of a range of vessels in the UK and the island of Ireland.

Niall Denholm served 12 successful years at the helm of Denholm Logistics Group, leading the division through several acquisitions and major capital projects, while always placing employees and their safety at the heart of his management philosophy.

Alan Platt joined Denholm as part of the acquisition of Good Logistics in August 2021, where he led the business. As Divisional Managing Director of Denholm Good Logistics, he spearheaded the integration of two separate businesses – Good Logistics and Denholm Global Logistics – into one combined organisation.

Ben MacLehose, CEO of parent company J. & J. Denholm, said,

“As Managing Director of Denholm Logistics Group, Niall Denholm has grown and developed the division tremendously. He has also been an ardent supporter of enabling employees to progress their careers, from entry-level roles to company directors. I wish Niall a happy and productive retirement.”

Ben continues, “I look forward to working with Alan in his new role as Managing Director. I have no doubt that Denholm Logistics Group will continue to flourish with Alan at its helm. As a seasoned leader in logistics, Alan has a successful track record of seeking growth opportunities for the businesses he leads and the people within them.”

Niall Denholm retired as Managing Director of Denholm Logistics Group on 3rd May 2024. Alan Platt was appointed Denholm Logistics Group Managing Director on 4th May 2024.
