I have experience in running my own food and drink delivery business; in working for a leading contract logistics provider, and in a supply chain management role for a growing FMCG company. Examples of how we can help:
An up and coming FMCG company required a warehousing and haulage supplier comparison review. Following a modelling of their volumes and including pallet reconfigurations. I was able to recommend the most efficient way forward.
An office based company in London used to sending items across the city by courier was using their same-day courier for the next-day parcel needs. I was able to recommend a different parcel carrier which cut costs by more than 60%.
A specialist building supplies merchant required a lower cost solution for sending IDW parcels such as 5m pipes. I was able to connect the company with a specialist freight company for parcels and a non-network haulier for larger deliveries.
I guided a startup babyfood company through the process of setting up their EDI for trading with grocery multiples and conducting a 3PL costing exercise for fulfiling palletised customer orders. I also helped with urgent one-off international deliveries that were arranged and delivered within 24 hours.
I created and managed a webshop for an author, including order fulfilment using a specialist mail company to obtain discounts compared to standard postage.
I ran a simple pick and pack for sending samples to field reps and customers; including receipt of stock, setting up online ordering and dispatching using a combination of mail and discount parcel carriers.
A retailer required a one off LCL load shipping to Australia. I was able to help arrange the shipping and compliance with regulations and tracked the delivery through to release to the domestic haulier.
