Rob Riddleston, judge of the Growth category for The Logistics Awards, answers our question on the importance of gaining new business.
Kirsty Adams:How critical is winning new business to growth?
Rob Riddleston: Winning new business is the core to any company’s growth strategy. Customers naturally have a life cycle as sales trends change, businesses merge and competitors fight for survival. Having a pipeline of potential new business is vital and there is a need to take both a long term approach and be opportunistic. Growth from natural economic expansion will be offset by other factors so for a Logistics business to grow winning new business is the key.
