CONSULTANCY – The Supply Chain Consulting Group : Experts in all aspects of logistics & supply chain

The Supply Chain Consulting Group (SCCG) is an independent, professional, logistics and supply chain consultancy company that works with global corporations and fast-growing companies in multiple sectors, including fashion, retail, FMCG, life sciences, industrial, media and technology.

Gavin Parnell

Gavin Parnell, Director at SCCG, spoke to Warehouse & Logistics News.

What products or services does your company offer?

We assist our clients with any enquiries and projects that they have in:

• Logistics Network Strategy & Cost to Serve Modelling

• Warehouse Operational Design / Improvement

• Transport Modelling & Route to Market Strategy

• 3PL Outsourcing / Tender Management

• Inventory Optimisation & Reviews

• Warehouse Automation Design & Procurement

• International Trade Advisory (Customs, VAT etc.)

Which industries do your customers operate in?

There is a growing demand for our consultancy services in Retail, e-Commerce and FMCG, but our portfolio includes clients in sectors such as Construction and Utilities, Automotive, Aerospace, Technology, Public Sector, Outsourcing and Fashion.

Has your company celebrated any milestones this year?

This year we’ve grown our team and welcomed 3 new colleagues – Charlotte Hicks and Alasdair Williams in our Slough Office, and John Langley at Leamington Spa.

We’ve also grown our portfolio, reaching a client base of over 300 companies, and over 500 completed projects.

Do you have any examples of a project you have recently completed?

One example among many would be a review of logistics for a drinks company, highlighting all the areas where change is required to cope with a shift in route to market towards ecommerce. This resulted in an action plan of practical, implementable recommendations.

How did your company react to the Covid-19 outbreak and consequent lockdowns?

During the outbreak and the consequent lockdowns, to be able to continue operating at full pace, we moved our business to a higher degree of remote working and won new businesses with clients. Now we are back in the office and despite the challenges of the last year, our business continues to thrive.

Over a year on from the start of Covid-19, what lessons has the company and the industry learned from the pandemic?

An obvious one would be that short updates and similar meetings work fine over Teams. This discovery has helped us to work more efficiently. Of course, time on site will always be required to understand operations.

Do you think some of the trends that began or were accelerated during Covid-19, such as the increase in e-commerce, will become permanent?

Yes, more flexible working arrangements are here to stay, to some extent whether we like it or not. Having said that, there’s no substitute for face to face working and we have to consider the effects on people in the early stages of their career – so there is a balance to be struck. Regarding ecommerce, it may pull back a bit but of course the shift overall is permanent, and organisations need to adapt.

What products or services will you be introducing in the next year?

It’s more a case of continuous improvement than anything fundamentally new. As we expand the team we find our skill set and range of experience naturally increases, which increases the range of what we can do for clients.

In what areas are you making technological advances?

We are continually improving the tools we use internally to address client projects, as well as buying in software where appropriate, for example linear programming / optimisation software, 3D visualisation etc. We also keep up to date with technology developments in the industry e.g. new and improving automation technologies, developments in the WMS market etc.

What training do you provide for your staff?

A lot of learning in our business is ‘on-the-job’ knowledge sharing between team members. New team members spend time learning what we do, specific software packages etc.
