Implementation and Project Management

Businesses today face unprecedented challenges created by uncertain and volatile markets. The ongoing need to change and keep pace with fluctuating demands must be professionally managed, in order to mitigate the inherent risks in changing supply chains.

Bisham consulting is staffed by senior managers with operational experience in managing major transformational logistics projects. From the implementation of new distribution centres and the closure of old ones, to dedicated fleet operations, collaborative transport operations and global supply chains – our experience and approach ensures positive and predictable project outcomes and minimises risks to budget overspend and business continuity during the implementation of major logistics changes.

Bisham Consulting only makes recommendations that they would consider to be prepared for implementation. This simple philosophy demonstrates Bisham’s practical approach to providing solutions and reflects on the experience of our logistics consultants gained in senior positions within industry prior to joining Bisham.
