Engaging multiple stakeholders to achieve safer, greener and more cost effective transport operations

I have been working at Hatmill since Autumn 2020. Before that I worked as a transport planner and coordinator for a number of different businesses including a national general haulage provider, a waste management company and a small international events and conference production company.

My role within Hatmill has included

  • Working with a national distributor of school supplies to assess the cost effectiveness, compliance and efficiency of their fleet operation

In previous roles I have

  • Generated significant cost savings by reorganising the rental fleet to take advantage of the full scope of the operator licence, retendering the subcontracted haulage services and investing in brand new vehicles. The changes combined increased the core fleet utilisation by 7% but reduced the overall logistics expenditure by 11% in the first year
  • Implemented a new fleet management system and vehicle telematics to improve reliability and on time performance
  • Worked within a team to plan and execute a fleet renewal strategy to comply with a new local Clean Air Zone
  • Carried out the onsite implementation of a bespoke delivery planning software to integrate with the customer CRM and sales system

The opportunity to work with different teams across various industries really appealed to me. It’s in my nature to create solutions and the chance to help clients explore options to realise the full potential of their operation was too good to pass up.

By improving their demand forecast, we helped one client save £3m in agency staffing costs (that’s an 18% reduction).
