Alistair Cochrane



Skills, knowledge and experiences over 34 years in sameday courier industry1986 saw this person arrive in the sales and general manager role for TNT, London. A company that would be the career for a further 28 years.
A decade after joining TNT promotion to Regional Director and then network Director roles were given to a talented and dedicated individual who’s passion for the delivery industry was surpassed only by the passion for rugby. From each job role both the company and this individual, gave and benefited from the job experience and both were to grow.

Service levels up, overall delivery improvement up, productivity up. There was only one way this individual was going. Divisional Director and then in 2009 Director of Operations, the holy grail of last mile delivery, supporting the whole team to achieve excellence in the delivery of our service. Enjoyment and challenges but still the passion, wanting to get it right and get it better every day. Reward of such agile skills and compassionate support to the team brought the top job to the door. 2009 Managing Director TNT UK Ltd.

Highly deserved job role that saw this individual develop and implement a strategy to re-engineer the UK business (60+ locations, 10000+ employees) through major structural change supported by a restructured senior team. A task that was carried out with diligence, care, attention to detail and considerately. Companies don’t stand still and for the next few years This individual gave way to stretching the boundaries and trying new areas in logistics. Project Director and then Operations Director Parcel Force but Postman Pat just didn’t make the grade.

So with some 34 years experience and without loss of commitment, dedication, passion and tenacity this individual still comes back for more. Currently the Chief Development Officer for Whistl UK LTD he continues to delivery that extra mile for our industry.
