Transport Management and Logistics Networks

We are Supply Chain and Logistics Consultants who have been in business for over 30 years. We have a very successful track record and a high rate of repeat business.


Bisham Consulting can assist with the review and optimization of operational processes and networks in your transport management system. We can help to reduce transport and logistics distribution costs to make the business more efficient.

Bisham has a flexible approach. We can help from a ‘light- touch’ to ‘heavy-lift’, dependent on your needs.

So how do you know what is right for your organisation?

Usually our clients call us in if they can say “NO” to one or more of the following five questions:

  • Do you have a published transport management strategy?
  • Is that strategy consistent with the overall business objectives?
  • Are you satisfied that your present freight spend is fully optimised?
  • Do you feel fully in control of your present freight spend?
  • Are your logistics service levels meeting your customer’s requirements?

Bisham’s clients enjoy transport savings of typically between 10% and 30% on delivery cost savings alone. Clearly, the impact of these changes on profits is huge.
