Supplier Updates – End of Year
February 2021 Update - Atom Logistics News

Since the last newsletter in January, we have completed our 2020 year-end figures with all of our suppliers, and with the reconciliation now complete, I can only describe 2020 as a massively successful year! This means a successful year for you, our customers. The growth of spend with our partners means that we are successfully providing you, our clients, with the right solutions for their logistics needs and this to us, is success.

One example of this is with one of our key partners, Pall-Ex. In 2020, Pall-Ex members generated over £52,000 for the greater good through their partnership with Atom Logistics and this was a growth of 100% from 2019 figures. This is the result of more clients trading with Pall-Ex due to the strong service packages they offer within the pallet industry. We are delighted to have reached this level of funding via one of our key partners, as this demonstrates that we are helping our clients to reach their business goals.

Atom Logistics Team Update

Liane has been in the industry for 25 years, starting in aviation, to then moving on to freight forwarding and also domestic courier services. She is extremely customer-centric and enjoys finding solutions for customers. Liane takes time to build strong business relationships and proves to be the customer’s logistics expert.

Alongside Liane, Philip is responsible for offering customers better value, service and solutions to their existing supply chain, as clients look to grow.

Question of the Month
Do you still have unanswered questions on Brexit?
February 2021 Update - Brexit Questions - Atom Logistics News

The Government are aware of the confusion and complexity for UK businesses caused by Brexit and, therefore, have launched a new package of on-demand video content to help businesses understand the new rules for doing business with Europe. This may be viewed here.

Top Tips from the team
  • Sophie – Always be a great leader! Great leaders don’t set out to be a leader; they set out to make a difference. It’s never about the role, always about the goal.
  • Bradley – To be a champion, you have to see the big picture. It’s not about winning and losing; it’s about everyday working hard and about thriving on a challenge.
  • Charlotte – When sending goods to EU following Brexit, where possible attach a copy of the commercial invoice to the package, as well as uploading it electronically to the booking. This will help avoid customs delays.
  • Gemma – Always manage customer expectations. Be truthful with what you can offer in terms of service, given the industry challenges. Don’t overpromise – customers will always be more understanding if you are transparent with them.
  • Liane – Sales is not just about selling a product or service, but about building trust and educating, with a can-do attitude.
  • Philip – Great salespeople are relationship builders who provide value and help their customers win.
