2011 has been an exciting year for us with unprecedented growth in both the private and public sectors.
The key milestones can be summarised as folows; January started well with receiving a certificate of High Commendation at an industry awards ceremony for our work and expertise in Logistics Network Design and Outsourcing Tender Management and we were one of the four finalists nominated for the Customer Satisfaction Award.
This achievement was followed closely by a complete re-branding in March with the new logo and website, our second successful year at the Multimodal Logistics event at the NEC in April and the move to our new offices in June to accommodate the additional administration staff and support functions for the consultant team.
In addition the company has supported two major charities during the year. In May the specialist warehouse design team were engaged by the Royal British Legion to ensure that The Poppy Shop (the online shop for The Royal British Legion which celebrated its 90th anniversary in 2011) could meet the significant increase in product range and demand once they had decided to dramatically expand the range of products available on-line. The outsourced e-fulfilment solution implemented by Gideon Hillman Consulting with the Royal British Legion provided the infrastructure to support a record fundraising year for the Poppy Shop.
Clients during the year have included ABB; Magna Automotive; McDonald’s Europe; Ikea Quorn; Fenner Drives; Eveden Group, Enveco; Biogen (UK); Bibby Distribution; Computers Unlimited; Premier Foods; Cameron Process Engineering; The Royal British Legion; Technology Supplies; ShelterBox; Wincanton Logistics; Richard Burbidge; Britvic Soft Drinks and Hertfordshire County Council.
The types of projects have ranged from complete Logistics Network design and implementation, Warehouse Optimisation (supported by the company’s in-house CAD facilities), transport and Warehouse Outsourcing tenders and S&OP (sales and operations planning).
