Why I enjoy being part of our customers’ logistics journey

By Abbie McGuffie Multi-user Warehouse Contracts Executive

The success of Peel Ports’ multi-user warehousing offer is down to the hard work of the Mersey Cluster team – a team which I am proud to have been a part of since joining the company a little more than two years ago.

My role as multi-user warehouse contracts executive involves developing port centric warehousing solutions for FMCG and industrial clients. I work with the sales and business development teams on all aspects of new and existing commercial contracts, ensuring revenue and budget targets are met and that industry best practice is carried out.

It’s a challenging and exciting part of the bigger Peel Ports team, who work together day in, day out to deliver customer solutions.

In the past four years, Liverpool’s multi-user warehousing offer has grown from 100,000sqft to 750,000sqft, allowing more customers the opportunity to warehouse their goods then get them to their customers in the most flexible, efficient and cost effective way possible.

The ability to adapt to individual customer requirements lies at the heart of multi-user warehousing. 

We work with customers of all sizes and across a range of sectors to develop port centric solutions, which are tailor made to their needs. Port centric solutions offer fundamental advantages over inland facilities. These include carbon and cost savings, as well as helping customers become more efficient and competitive.

My job is to liaise with cargo owners and create and implement solutions which help them reach their end destination.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of my job is building relationships with customers, being part of their logistics journey and witnessing how the added value services we deliver helps customers grow and become more competitive within the marketplace.

Last year my efforts were rewarded when I was named Young Employee of the Year at the United Kingdom Warehousing Association Awards 2016. As an employer Peel Ports has helped me grow in my role and develop my skills as part of the wider team.

Every day working with Peel Ports, is diverse, challenging and most of all enjoyable. I am really looking forward to my future within the company’s wider commercial and operations team.
