Meet the Logistics Consultants' team

The Logistics Consultants is an independent management consultancy based in Ireland that specialises in all aspects of logistics. Since 2006, The Logistics Consultants has been providing solutions that work and are operationally robust and financially beneficial to its clients.

The Logistics Consultants’ experience and expertise covers all aspects of supply chain management from long term strategy through to detailed operational improvement in service, transport, distribution, inventory and warehousing.

Our clients will typically have identified a need to plan, change or review their supply chains/logistics operations, and will have recognised the benefits of independent specialist advice, technical expertise and professional guidance in realising their objectives.

Since our formation we have remained independent of suppliers of systems, services or equipment relating to supply chain operations.

We work with major domestic, multi-national organisations and SME's in Ireland and beyond. All of our services are scalable for both large companies and SME's, in relation to content and cost. Our ability to deliver tangible results is reflected in our client portfolio and high levels of repeat business.
