PWS has appointed John Blowes as head of warehousing and distribution.
He will be responsible for warehousing, fulfilment, logistics and transport operations as a way to further develop PWS’s customer service.
With more than 24 years of military service and commercial experience, Blowes’s background allows him to deliver both complex and critical operations within a tactical and strategic setting.
Blowes said: “With our current in-stock availability sitting at 99.99% and 99.1% of orders fulfilled on-time and in-full – we already have a brilliant warehouse team, superbly led by Mike Thubron, providing an industry-leading service.
“My role will not only support Mike in the continuous development of our warehouse proposition, but I will also be taking a wider view on the next stage of strategic deliveries, so we can propel our customer offering and service to the next level.”
Blowes will aid the supply chain, training, lean management, technology (ITIL governance), health and safety, WMS [warehouse management systems] implementations and process flow, assessing and analysing the current logistics position, capacity and service providers, allowing him to provide informed and credible information to the strategic leadership.
