Managing supply chain fragility

Peter Ward, former Chief Executive of UKWA, emphasises that making structural changes including additional capacity for stock can no longer be considered a linear process.

Peter Ward has over 40 years’ experience in international transportation, logistics and supply chain management; and is recognised as a principal of authority in global supply chains and logistics based on achievements at Director level with some of the world’s leading logistics providers.

A Graduate Fellow and Trustee Director of the Institute of Export and Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, Peter’s career started in the export shipping department of Courtaulds plc, before joining his family's freight forwarding company, D H Ward (Shipping) Ltd, where he later became Managing Director. In 1994 he masterminded the Company's merger with American-owned Fritz Companies, which under his leadership became a top-five forwarder in Europe prior to acquisition by UPS in 2001. More recently Peter was Director Europe of P&O Nedlloyd Logistics, and Commercial Director at DP World London Gateway prior to joining UKWA as Chief Executive in January 2015.
