Supply Chain Consultants
Supply Chain Management is the strategic coordination of business functions within a company with the aim of achieving the most efficient movement and storage of goods from point of origin to point of consumption.
As part of the Global Supply Chain, Import, Export and Logistics is the part of the supply chain processes that plans, implements, and controls the efficient, effective forward and reverse flow and storage of goods, services, and related information between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet customs and customers' requirements.
The complete integration of the supply cycle requires an understanding of the complete process. Understanding how the freight flows, where it is at any time, knowing possible choke points and possible problem spots benefits not only the shipper but also the logistics providers, to maximize the use of resources

Effective Supply Chain Management
Many organisations fail to truly coordinate their supply chains and often ‘sub optimise’ by treating each supply chain function as a silo i.e. targeting reductions in finished goods inventory without balancing the implications on economic production batch sizes, or bulk purchasing raw materials without considering the impact on working capital. Consequently, where one cost is driven down, another is increased.
The result of a ‘sub optimised’ supply chain is often limited visibility, hidden costs and fragmented teams working against each other.
“Gideon Hillman Consulting carried out a comprehensive review of our Logistics and Supply Chain operations, including consultation with all stakeholders to establish their individual needs within a multi-faceted Supply Chain. The result is a thorough and implementable Logistics, Warehousing and Distribution strategy with sound methodology and reasoning behind it, enabling flexibility within a frequently changing operational environment."
