We have all had very extensive careers in international trade, where we have managed and directed international operations for leading commercial and logistic service providers, now we are consultants at Zlios.
During our careers, we have built and managed all types of operational teams around the world including in the United Kingdom, United States, Europe, the Middle East and in Asia. We`ve been very lucky, we`ve met and worked with some brilliant people in each of these locations. We`ve also experienced there local culture, explored their countries histories and traveled through some of the most beautiful vistas, you can imagine, the mountains, the open plains, all of them seem to stretch out as far as the eye could see. We have always respected there local environments and the local people, who live there, as we are all children of earth.
Logistics, Compliance, Customs and Technology systems all lay at the heart of successful commercial supply chains around the world. Logistics operations link distant locations together, but it’s the trade compliance processes, customs import and export operations plus technology systems, which all need to work together to get that shipment delivered to a distant locations, whilst protecting the shipper.
During our careers, we have also supported and designed many different types of commercial operations supply chains including Technology, Medical Devices, Semi-Conductors, Food, Engineering, Raw Materials and even Consumer Goods for leading commercial organizations around the world. We have also worked in heavily regulated environments and have even Implemented Quality Management Systems including ISO9001, ISO14001 and BRC Certification to support these operations.
Professional knowledge and experience needs to be shared with everyone, as knowledge and experience raises standards for everyone and these skills will also improve their professional lives. We believe in fairness and sharing the success of a project with everyone as it brings people together.
Interesting quotes, which have inspired us….Cosmologist, Stephen Hawking’s once stated,
“I believe alien life is quite common in the universe, although intelligent life is less so. Some say, it has yet to appear on planet Earth”……
We are very interested in the Earth`s environment, we only have one planet and we have to look after it for future generations.
• Global supply chains need to be carbon neutral or not generate any emissions at all.
• All logistics infrastructure and buildings should be designed using the BREEAM methodology, which helps to manage and mitigate risk through demonstrating sustainability performance during the initial planning, design, construction and its ongoing commercial operations. (Link).
• Where practical, all new houses and commercial facilities should be built with Photovoltaic systems integrated into their roofs and other building structures.
