Ashley joins JLL from DHL and has over 12 experience in the logistics industry.

With the rise in eCommerce and the ongoing changes in consumer behaviour businesses are finding that today’s supply chain is very different to that of a pre-digital age – they need to adapt and evolve, and generally be much more flexible.
Ashley understands our customers’ challenges, as well as the solutions and technologies that the market can offer.
