Small Business Logistics, Supply Chain Management and Fulfillment
Christopher Howell began his career in the receiving yard of McLendon’s Hardware, and worked his way up to managing the shipping, receiving, and inventory of their flagship store. He eventually took over management of their crossdock warehouse where he managed a team of five warehouse associates and coordinated the routes of two CDL truck drivers.
Naturally talented at warehouse workflow, Christopher found the process of receiving and shipping, inventory tracking, vendor and carrier relationship maximization, and personnel management to be intuitive and engaging.
After receiving an offer from a national 3PL to open their latest fulfillment center in the Pacific Northwest, Christopher set up their warehouse from scratch and led a large fulfillment team who was responsible for tracking sales, managing inventory, and fulfilling orders for over 15 small businesses.
From that experience, Christopher decided to use his knowledge and passion for operations and logistics to ensure your business has the tools, knowledge and experience needed to be competitive,
