September 2020 is officially Launch Month at diamondlogistics and despite the stormy waters & challenges we have all had to navigate during this year of exceptional circumstances, we are proud to say that our diamond network continues to thrive & expand at an exciting pace.
As we introduce & showcase our new diamond Network Partners to you all throughout September, we will also be revisiting our already established diamond Network Partners.
Today we re-introduce you to Peter Jenkinson & the team of diamondlogistics Carlisle. Peter is the owner of 1878 Couriers Ltd & joined diamond as a Network Partner during the Covid-19 lockdown and officially launched in August 2020.
Originally from Blackpool, Peter but has lived in Penrith since he was 10, he is a family man with 3 daughters to keep him on his toes! Peter's passion for football, Everton F.C in particular, is evident in his company name 1878 Couriers - it is the year Everton were formed!
Peter has always considered himself to be ambitious - shifting from playing for Carlisle United until he was 18 and got injured, to pursue his dreams of being a entrepreneur.
Peter got into logistics by importing and selling sofas when he was 24 and had a contract with Argos. He sold UK wide and completed the deliveries himself. Peter loved the logistics of it and planning the deliveries.
In 2009 the credit crunch closed his shop, 2 warehouses and he says, “I got a new job, but in 2016 I was offered a position of project manager or to take redundancy...I took redundancy and bought 1 van. 18 months later we had 8 vans and contracts with DPD, John Deere, Hermes, Siemens and others”.
He enjoys building the business and in his words, “just business in general!” Peter enjoys logistics, especially as he enjoys planning routes and getting items to their destination on time. His current clients differ each day, however he continues to build his business, confirming, ‘I have already planned potential businesses in this area that would work with the diamond services. Just can't wait to get started and knocking on doors”.
And why did Peter decide to join diamondlogistics? During Carlisle's launch week, Peter sat down with diamond Chief Commercial Officer Daniel Allin to discuss this very point - Check the video out here
