Getting contracts you "deserve"?

I think that has been Barloworld's problem for the last 7 or 8 years.

You don't deserve business, you earn it.

I dont understand your post it seems rather cryptic.Its not as if things have just happened overnight.They may have been around a long time,but maybe they have failed to realise when a change needs to be made, a little too late.

BARLOW ARE THE LAST IN THE LONG LINE TO TO LAY OFF THEY HAVE TRIED THERE HARDEST TO MAINTAIN THE HIGH LEVEL OF SERVICE AND YES IT HAS HURT BUT BARLOWS HAVE BEEN AROUND A LONG TIME AND ALWAYS WILL. THE TOOLS ARE NOW IN PLACE AND WE ARE GOING TO USE THEM TO OUR ADVANTAGE
AND GET THE PROPER CONTRACTS THAT WE DESERVE.

hyster-boy
I've heard today that Barlows UK have given all staff 90 days notice,can anybody confirm or deny these rumours.It seems that OEM's idea of giving trucks away hoping to make it up on chargeable is catching up,as nobody will spend.

Before tracker and PDA, I used to average 5 jobs a day, order parts, service my regular customers etc, nigh on impossible now with the current structure and setup. The amount of time being dumped into AIM and LTH because of PDA problems must be colossal across the UK.

In our PIT meetings its brought up every month but swept under carpet

Ah well there is my moan for tonight. This is not the company I joined in 93, lucky if we are still here in 2010 unless our Senior Managers address the problems now.
