To start, can you tell us a little bit about your background and what you do at 3PL? What are you responsible for?

James Taylor (JT): I have worked within the recruitment industry for the past 10 years +. During this time, I specialised in the industrial sector, making the transition to 3PL much smoother. At 3PL my role as Business Development Manager has me focusing primarily on bringing new business onboard. As part of this, ensuring a quality introduction for new companies, working closely with our customer service team to ensure the needs of the customer are prioritised and working with those customers to enhance the growth of their businesses and elevate them to the next level.

Why did you decide to get into your current job role?

JT: I love to meet and speak to people but also love the idea of a complex sell. It became apparent that the complexity of third-party logistics was a real interest. Working with businesses to provide solutions that will realise their growth potential is a real buzz for me.

Why did you decide to join 3PL?

JT: 3PL is a driven, professional business with a homely/community feel. With honesty and integrity at the forefront, it is an environment where everyone can be part of a great team and achieve their true potential.

What does your day-to-day typically look like?

JT: Woking with John, I look to establish companies that are embarking on exponential growth which will see our services and solutions help transition their businesses to the next level. In addition to this, we look to highlight more established businesses that would use our services to relieve stress/pressure in other areas of their business, allowing them to grow organically.

What’s your favourite thing about working at 3PL?

JT: 3PL is a great work environment where the collective team has a common goal in ensuring customers’ expectations are exceeded. The future growth of our customers and the success of the business overall provide us with the daily motivation to succeed. Both elements form the 3PL DNA and it’s really refreshing to see and to be part of something special.

Can you tell our readers about how the order fulfilment and logistics industry has changed over the past years?

JT: This industry has moved with the customer. Its flexibility has seen the solutions we provide mould into different guises which work to suit the solution that the customer requires. To stand still in this industry renders your relevance mute. Technology has played a huge part in this transformation. Technological advances have made the possibilities almost endless and timescales reduce out of recognition.

What’s a fun fact about you?

JT: During my early 20’s I spent 7 months in Australia playing cricket.
