Unity Logistics Eyes Growth: Unity Logistics, Rotherham’s latest international shipping agency, shows confident start to business in first months of trading (November 2015).
Reflecting on the business, Simon Arnold, Director, is ready for the challenges ahead:
“6 months ago I found myself unemployed but determined to make something happen. After a lot of work and sourcing some external investment the dream is becoming a reality, and we are excited to keep pushing ourselves to see just how far we can take it.”
Some of Unity Logistics recent clients include: a leading UK supplier of flat pack furniture, a specialist car part manufacturer and a high end online retailer.
Partnering director to Simon, Emma Jarrett, also comes from a background in freight forwarding. At just 24 and 21 respectively, both already have a few years’ experience each in the industry. She adds:
“At such a young age this is an incredible opportunity for us and we are proving that we are very competent at what we do; and we have already shipped goods to or from 5 different continents.”
With around eight years' experience working in both marketing and market research, Elliot works extensively with small businesses to develop their marketing strategy as a consultant when away from PBN.
He has featured as PR and market expert on the Guardian Small Business, judged the UK Blog Awards in 2014, and was short listed as Stockport Young Business Person of the Year in the same year.
