Hardev Pannu | Global Logistics Coordinator
Hardev – looks at the space between the notes
Hardev joined the Polaris organization 3.5 years ago, advancing quickly through several challenging mandates. Formerly a senior marketing communications specialist in Asia, Hardev refocused his career pursuit with a Diploma in Supply Chain Management after moving to Canada 7 years ago.
Fast forward to today as a Global Logistics Coordinator for PGL division, he coordinates the movement of truckloads, specialized distribution work, high value shipments and supply chain management programs. Reporting to PGL CEO Jon Saunders, Hardev’s take on Polaris Group; “There is so much knowledge here and working with a talented group of people, it brings out the best in me!”
Hardev lives in Oakville with his wife, Tina and children, Nathaniel and Michaella. Both children are in college now with Michaella studying Early Childhood Education and Nathaniel following his Dad’s footstep in Supply Chain Management. Hardev enjoys coaching soccer and playing golf when his better half is not having him labouring in the yard.
Taking a cue from jazz music, Hardev explains the beauty of jazz is not in the notes; it is in the space between the notes. In logistics, “It’s the total opposite! Efficiency is when there is no space or lag. And like great jazz players, there are times we think on our feet and improvise to ensure each shipment placed with PGL is in tune and arrives on time.”
