Word from the directors

Alex joins Westbound with a background in senior leadership and experience working with shipping lines, logistics providers and directly with importers as a consultant. This experience has given him a unique insight into the supply chain and its various transport modes. This value is still evident in the legacy he has left with previous businesses as processes and successful strategies put into practice at the time continue to benefit the companies successes even after departure. With proven skills in the implementation and development of international business divisions and acquisitions his overall directorial responsibility for strategy implementation and business growth are driven by the desire to provide clients with a best in class service and a genuine enjoyment of the industry and appreciation of its challenges.

“Westbound are a forward thinking company with a strong foundation in customer service and proactive approach to adding real value to their clients, they have invested in the business through innovative digital freight solutions but retain the personal touch so vital in the supply chain industry. It became clear following our initial dialogue that the overall approach lent itself perfectly to the skillset I can bring to the business and our discussions quickly turned to development and the recognisable benefits of creating a port centric office in Felixstowe the Port of Britain as our initial expansion point. The foundation for success in our industry is modesty and placing value in both our suppliers and clients from operators to owners to enable us to consistently deliver a best in class customer service experience. Westbound recognise this and integrate it through all levels of the business”

Alex provides valuable insight, strategic advice on business practice and freight movement solutions by drawing from his many years’ experience operating with high profile blue chip international clients and a proven track record of adding real value through business development, key client management and ensuring the right people are in the right place to service these requirements.
