Transport & Logistics Procurement
The Gilead consultancy is an experienced adviser, tender consultant, and independent benchmark provider in the fields of domestic and international transport procurement. We make ourselves available to the transport industry and major shippers alike.
Our extensive experience employing domestic and international carriers across all transport modes allows us to readily recognise both capability and limitation in respect of sourcing and managing vendors.
Gilead advisory seeks to enable shippers to respond to cost and satisfaction pressures while mitigating risk.
In the logistics field Gilead is experienced in cost modelling and systems integration.
Among our specialties is the bringing of consulting expertise to enable our clients to address potential transport versus warehouse modelling solutions to enhance local customer operations.
Many of our clients explore solutions that can materially influence bricks and mortar decision making, while others are simply seeking to meet customer expectations at optimised inventory levels.
Gilead explores cross border one-to-many styled shipping solutions for major shippers. Opportunities are explored whereby the shipper, rather than the carrier, retains consolidation process control, and hence economies, while the choice of optimal and interchangeable domestic service provider solutions at final destination is integrated with the shipper’s enterprise system in the same manner as a domestic carrier.
Our Procurement services include assessments and facilitation of enterprise system and e-commerce integration between shippers and transport companies.
