TPN - The Pallet Network
TPN - The Pallet Network
Bob is not from Birmingham, but if you want to find out where he is from you're just going to have to listen to the podcast! To be fair, there's a whole lot more to Bob than his birthplace, he is one of the best Operational Leaders I have had the pleasure of working with. In this episode of the Logistics Collective podcast, he relates a little around his experience as Operations Director of TPN - "The Pallet Network" and reflects back on a long career. The podcast has one of the funniest oneliners so far from all of our podcasts too!

In this episode Jimmy Osmond had a hit in the 1970s called "I'll be your long haired lover from Liverpool", and for our interviewee here it could almost be appropriate, but perhaps Bouffant Bloke from Birkenhead might be closer to the target! The interview covers the history of one of the key leaders of the logistics industry (having been Chairman and CEO of a large number of logistics businesses) he continues his activities of business leadership both in the Chair and as an outstanding NED. Hugely entertaining to talk to, this guitar playing rock star of the logistics industry was at the foundations of one of the largest global logistics service providers. So, kick back, get a beverage of your choice and listen to the dulcet tones of Paul Carvell. One of the industries legends.

Our fourth episode is a slight diversion, we enter the world of procurement and supply and interview Malcolm Harrison, CEO of the Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS). CIPS is a UK based global professional body focused on its objective of leading excellence in procurement and supply. With offices in 5 countries and a membership of 100,000, it is the largest professional body covering procurement and supply. Malcolm talks us through his journey through a fascinating career, we reflect on how well the logistics industry addresses its procurement and wonder whether there is some value being missed by the industry? Procurement, at its best, is about values and value creation. We conclude our interview with some future thoughts and why procurement is an excellent career choice and how CIPS can be a key support and innovation driver in the field of procurement. It's a longer interview than normal, simply the subject areas covered were fascinating.
