Kisserup International Trade Roots - Customer Case Study

GH Consulting develop European Logistics Network Strategy

Logistics Network Strategy - Gideon Hillman Consulting UK

Kisserup is an international frontrunner in providing leading edge trade and export development, mentoring and trade training to companies across borders, across oceans, and across continents since 1998. Through trade development, Kisserup builds capacity and sustainable livelihoods.


Kisserup’s Logistics Network distributes many assorted products including frozen fish, berries and wine and beverages from Canada to Europe; all of which require many different logistics requirements and therefore different logistics service providers.


Kisserup realised that they required to review their various logistics strategy and providers, wishing to explore logistics providers with Pan European capabilities for providing temperature controlled logistics services (warehousing and distribution), and thus engaged the Specialist Logistics and Supply Chain Consultants at Gideon Hillman Consulting (GH), due to their knowledge and expertise in logistics provision and supply chains.

"We have had the pleasure of dealing with Gideon Hillman Consulting on several occasions. In each and every one they met and exceeded our expectations, before, during and after our consultations. We strongly recommend Gideon Hillman as a Service Partner and Provider." CEO - Kisserup International Trade Roots Inc & Europe

Together, the Netherlands and Benelux take a share of almost 50% of the distribution centres in the Food and Beverage sector in Europe. Due to this, they are regarded as the Food logistics ‘hub’ for imported food and drinks into Europe; as such a sample of the logistics providers in the GH team’s report included but were not limited to: Nagel-Group, Distrifresh, HSF Logistics, and Kuehne + Nagel.Gideon Hillman Consulting were required to provide Kisserup with a Logistics Provision Report, to serve as an assessment of, Kisserup’s current, and guidance for Kisserup’s future logistics requirements, and potential alternative providers.


Gideon Hillman Consulting researched and reported upon many different aspects of Kisserup’s Logistics requirements, including: the requirements for the different product groups identified by Kisserup; information about the four key global fish and produce logistics providers; details on one of the main Global drinks Logistics service providers; indicative information on port-to-port shipping costs from Halifax Nova Scotia with calculations based on a weight average of a group of rates on a given route to provide generic shipping costs from port-to-port and shipping times; and data for pallet storage rates in The Netherlands and Benelux as well as associated warehousing charges.


Using this bespoke report, Kisserup were able to review their current logistics providers and requirements, and in turn identify any changes which needed to be made. From this, Kisserup were able to make informed decisions about their logistics strategy, and their Logistics providers, whilst simultaneously evaluating their performance and overall value for money, and improve upon their Logistics strategy where necessary and convenient to do so.
