Freight Logistics Solutions is delighted to announce the appointment of Alan Griffiths as Customer Solutions Manager for their Multi-drop Express department.

Originally from Morriston Swansea, Alan joins FLS after 26 years with the global market leader in logistics, DHL

After leaving school and several years as a croupier Alan threw in his cards in and started his supply chain logistics career with Morgan Advanced Materials in quality control before joining Post Haste Couriers in Reading to really learn his trade before moving to DHL in 1993.

Alan has worked a variety of roles throughout the organisation, from Service Manager to Area Operations Manager, from Reading and Oxford to Muscat and Dubai thorough to Area Service centre manager for the south west and then South Wales.

Living in Caldicot Alan is married with three children and when not in the Canary Islands enjoys Welsh Rugby.

Alan said “I originally engaged FLS at DHL Global to support with our peak delivery and ongoing flex work – the owner drivers and service they provided me were a total step change in terms of quality and reliability from what I’d been used to. They made a big impression on me and I was seriously impressed.

I’ve always prided myself in having mutual respect for everyone I work with and being focused on results, this was something I identified instantly as part of the FLS ethos, so much so when the opportunity came up to join the team it was an easy decision for a career change. I’m super excited about the future at FLS, they’ve a great approach, great driver recruitment process’ and genuine guys that really want to make a difference”

Dafydd Rosser, Commercial Director at FLS added ‘We’ve been pretty busy throughout the pandemic with a lot of activity on with vans and supporting most for the UKs main Parcel Carriers. Our multi-drop department has been growing steadily but with the increased demand on home and commercial deliveries and the NHS we are investing in growing the multi-drop team.

We are really pleased to have Alan on-board – not only does he know literally everybody, his knowledge of global logistics and especially European parcel delivery is bar none – he offers our clients unprecedented insight into supply chain logistics solutions and of course knows just what the UK major parcel carriers are looking for in outsourced transport support providers such as FLS.
