Multimodal 2019

Another Successful Year for Gideon Hillman Consulting's picture

With another 46% year on year revenue growth on the previous 12 months, this year has been extraordinary for us. The growth for us has been greatest in the Logistics Network Design and Warehousing side of the business particularly in the e-commerce, FMCG, Retail and Construction sectors; which is consistent with the developments in the UK Logistics and Warehousing sector.

Some great new clients have come on board too, enabling us to work on projects for companies including for Greene King, NISA Retail, Diageo, Sofology, Kerry Group, WICOR Group, Menzies Distribution, Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery, Fine Décor Wallcoverings, Home Innovations, The Pen Shop, Nottingham University, AC Entertainment, Coach House, Frequency Telecom, John Pointon & Sons, XL Joinery, APD, Bryson Products, National Autistic Society, Conwy Borough Council, Supreme Imports, Jestic Food Services, and PD Bannister Haulage.

This is in addition to more project work for our existing clients including British Gypsum, The Cooperative Group, Premier Foods, Wall Family Europe, Brewed by Hand, DASCO Shoe Care, Electrium and PWS Distributors.

The types of projects we have carried out have been varied and all well within our core areas of expertise including Optimised Distribution Network design and appropriate Cost Modelling; Logistics Network Centre of Gravity Analysis to optimise resource and infrastructure; Multiple and individual Distribution Centre Capacity Assessments and Vehicle Fleet Profiling and resource requirements aligned with DC and customer requirements; new build design and re-configuration of existing warehouse, picking and distribution facilities; Optimised facility design/ layout, handling practices and workflows; Cost to serve, travel times and pick rate modelling to support the optimised layouts and workflows; Automation and Materials Handling Systems design, development, and implementation management; Warehouse and Inventory Management techniques to optimise workflow and costs; Optimised target inventories (holding cost vs. ordering cost vs. service); Tactical stock location(s) and picking strategies; Improved demand forecasting to allow for optimised inventories; Warehouse and Traffic Management System Operational Requirements Specifications.

With 2016 being such an outstanding year, I would like to give a big thank you to all our suppliers and customers for supporting GH through another fantastic year.

We sponsored the UKWA National Conference in 2016 and will look to do that again for the next one subject to confirmation of dates from UKWA. For 2017, we currently have a stand booked at IntraLogisteX at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry in March and have a stand booked at Multimodal at the NEC in April.


Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
