Myles has a long and successful career in logistics, print and manufacturing and is now a key lynchpin in logistics management at PDS. Starting out in warehousing and fulfilment, Myles worked his way up through supervisor, manager, and project manager roles in prestigious organisations including Oxford University Press. He moved on from there into a role as a trainer for print management information system business, Tharstern.
Myles has also worked for Northamptonshire-based printing businesses on stock management and fulfilment before joining PDS five years ago. In his role as logistics office manager, Myles works hand in hand with the client services team to ensure that operations run smoothly, and client projects are delivered on time.
Myles said, “Over the last year, my role has become more specialised, as roles and responsibilities become more tightly defined across a growing team. I spend my time on data and fulfilment processes, uploading files and producing labels for major mailings. I also look after transport requirements whether consignments require dedicated overnight or same day delivery, or whether we are using our own fleet of vehicles or need to deploy lorries or HGVs. I look after the dispatch of letters, parcels, boxes and pallets of materials, and deal with a variety of operators from DHL and TNT to APC, UPS and Pallex.”
Par for the course
When he’s not at work, Myles enjoys playing golf and is an enthusiastic member of Market Harborough Golf Club although he claims not to be able to improve his handicap of 18 despite having played for over 30 years. His great hero is Rory McIlroy. Myles also enjoys walking and always enjoys returning to his native Devon which he compares with the French Riviera.
