Logistics expert and ex ASDA Distribution Director; David Gibbons, has launched The Logistics People - an integrated service of logistics operations, expertise and contracted workforce provision.
Together with Chris Yelland, who compliments David's 30 year career with over 25 years experience in recruitment, the company are well placed to work within all areas of FMCG businesses.
Born from the understanding of the frustrations and general dissatisfaction with agency services surrounding the procurement of a competent workforce, The Logistics People aim to revolutionise the industry by delivering a better, more efficient and sustainable way of doing things.
The Logistics People have industry specific knowledge and work collaboratively as consultants; using a network of established, trusted contacts from across the UK to procure a workforce, whilst delivering effective strategic support to all areas of a business's people function. All levels of operatives can be provided, including warehouse operatives, fork lift truck drivers, HGV drivers and clerical staff, plus junior to senior management positions.
Rigorous recruitment processes are in place to ensure no disruption is caused by hiring the wrong people, with irrelevant experience or invalid paperwork.
David Gibbons comments; "I know how much of an issue finding the right people for your business can be and just how much disruption a trail of incompatible candidates can cause. Building upon my experiences within the industry, I knew a change to the way logistics companies did business was imperative. That is why we offer effective tailored solutions to fit each individual business; we want to work closely with our customers to ensure we are providing the right solutions both for short and long term operational efficiency - rather than just throwing people at their problems!"
