LOGISTICS: Better Business with Supply Chain Improvement Projects


Recent Gauteng Business News

Volition Consulting Services, a member company of Imperial Logistics, is an independent supply chain specialist that offers professional services in supply chain improvement consulting, technology enablement, managed services and education. The organisation has over the years been dedicated to making its clients’ businesses better by applying the capabilities of its people and creating value for all stakeholders.

In celebration of the 8th birthday of the Volition brand, the organisation has produced a book entitled “Making Business Better: A Selection of Supply Chain Improvements Projects”. This book showcases a collection of supply chain business improvement projects managed and executed by Volition in partnership with its clients over the years.

Imperial Logistics Commited to Supply Chain Improvement

When Imperial Logistics acquired a majority stake in Volition in 2008, the business had proven itself to be the leader in supply chain consulting and advisory services in southern Africa. Three years later the Volition ideology remains unchanged and its passion to make business better continues to be applied to clients and Imperial Operating Companies alike. “It is not only the art of designing solutions but also the skill to implement that sets Volition apart,” says Hubert Brody, Chief Executive of Imperial Holdings.

He adds that, “Volition is an organisation that epitomises the sharp end of the modern organisation. It specialises in activities which require significant intellectual thought and advanced modelling. It achieves its competitive advantage through the value that it brings to its clients and has skills that can be applied to a broad range of industries where process thinking applies. This can range from financial institutions to international freight and from route planning to warehouse optimisation. Solutions are normally of a process, technology and strategic nature.”

The case studies reflected in the book have been documented in such a way to demonstrate the scale of business transformation, and range of benefits that can be achieved, without compromising the confidentiality or strategic intent of the clients involved. “In many ways, this collection paints a compelling picture of Volition’s purpose and how this has forged the business we see today,” says Dean Tebbutt, Managing Director of Volition Consulting Services.

Client Relationships Key to Supply Chain Improvement

Tebbutt says that the trusted client relationships developed over the years have played a fundamental role in overcoming not only the challenges at hand, but also in achieving sustainable improvement in their businesses. “We would like to thank our customers for trusting us with their challenges, and allowing us to assist in improving their businesses. A special word of thanks must go to all Volition’s staff members involved over the years. They have been the mainstay of these projects, displaying the typical “CAN-DO” attributes that we associate with the improvement projects we undertake,” he adds.

“Testimony to the above are the nine Logistics Achiever’s awards which Volition, together with its clients, have received. We trust that you, the reader, will find value in this collection of case studies,” concludes Tebbutt. This then therefore becoming a testament to how important positivity can influence supply chain improvement.
