Consultancy

Interested but have some concerns? Want expert, professional advice?

We are logistics professionals with direct hands-on experience gained in the third party and own account sectors. We understand the total supply chain and have undertaken studies for Europe, Africa, Asia, Australasia and North America. Together with your own staff we form a powerful and cost-effective team.

Our two main specialist fields are in operational reviews and business development studies. This ensures we maintain our 'hands-on' experience while continually enhancing our strategic planning and analytical skills. We can realistically become your team for securing new logistics contracts and then carry out all your annual reviews.

If we haven't talked already, perhaps now might be the time to have a more in-depth look at the sort of supply chain reviews that can add value to your organisation.

What Our Customers Say

The reduction of supply chain costs is the ultimate goal for businesses, and our teaching and advice, combined with the expertise of LogiX, equips our students and businesses with the knowledge to make this happen. The environment can be a contentious issue for the logistics and haulage industry. Our students are now able to prove that it is possible to make a tangible difference to the carbon footprint of a haulage fleet, for example the Financial and Carbon calculator, developed by DPS, provides hard evidence that less miles means less environmental damage. By using LogiX software, students and companies are able to understand complex logistics planning and optimisation, essential to businesses in the current economic climate, giving them the outside edge in today's job market.
