A profile of Dewi Lloyd, a member of the Institute of Logistics and Transport is presented. He is a logistics planner for the Land Rover company and has been with the company for 11 years, and three months in his current role. He manages a small team that is responsible for the supply chain planning of powertrain and chassis components for a future Land Rover new vehicle program. This involves liaising with suppliers and developing solutions for packaging, transport and routeing, and inventory and data transmission. He believes that the best thing about his job is that he gets to speak to people from many departments within the company. The contact with a range of different people, many of them working abroad, makes every day different.
