Logistics Outsourcing and Tender Management

Over recent years the consultants at Gideon Hillman Consulting have reviewed, developed and managed many Logistics procurement and outsourcing solutions on behalf of clients. The combined logistics contract value has now hit a significant milestone of £1.5BN (GBP).

Our Logistics and Supply Chain Consultants, all of whom have a background of working with or for Transport and Logistics Service Providers, have significant experience in developing the scope of the logistics outsourcing tenders to cover all operational and service requirements; managing the tender process from beginning to end, from writing the scope to response evaluation and final negotiations for Global, European and UK based Multi-modal Transport and  Distribution logistics, warehousing, and freight tenders.

Logistics Outsourcing Experience

Our experience shows that just re-tendering the same in-house or outsourced logistics network can provide cost savings up to 10% of annual costs. However through evaluation of your current and future logistics requirements and subsequent development of a more bespoke logistics outsourcing service requirement, whilst maintaining tight control of the tender process; savings of around 20% to 30% can be achieved.
