Global Supply Chain Manager

Bruce joined DEAN World Cargo in 1988 and helped laying the strong foundations of the organisation from its early stages.
Bruce’s vast experience gained in the retail and wholesale clothing and textile industry (TCF) was of great significance, as David Hales and Bruce both had a great deal of contacts in this industry sector.

As the import sector rapidly changed and switched to sourcing offshore DEAN World Cargo was placed in a good position to provide a range of services and expertise which we developed in conjunction with our offshore and strategic partner. We provided retailers with cost effective and innovative services, such as multiple supplier consolidation and direct to store pick and pack with complete visibility and technology solutions.
