David Clarkson, managing director of DBL Logistics, said: -As a leading warehousing and distribution business in the Sheffield City Region, we are pleased to support the hub's aims in showcasing the expertise available. -Logistics is a fast-growing sector and one which this region is ideally placed to capitalise on, but we need to work together to be able to maximise our strengths and sell ourselves to the world.  David has also been selected to become the Sheffield Chamber's Transport Forum representative on the new Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Logistics Group.
