Integrated Supply Chain (ISC) Management & Value Chain Efficiency Consulting / Advisory Services  

Our seasoned team of NGO logisticians has performed and continues to offer our clients the following value add consulting / advisory services designed to optimize NGO supply chains globally. 


  • Supply Chain Performance Audits on Sub-Contracted "destination" 3PL's in Central Asia, MENA, Sub-Saharan Africa and Eurasia for multiple Fortune 500 Shipping Companies and Global Freight Forwarders executing as NGO prime and sub contractors.  
  • Audited multiple destination 3PL service providers over the course of 18 months. 
  • Analyzed overall dwell time, cycle time and velocity performance metrics on multimodal transport lanes that were being used at the time of project execution.
  • Performed pricing analytics by comparing price points of several 3PL's that were sub-contracting directly with our clients and cross checked the cost points we received when soliciting rates from the very same 3PL's along with how much we would mark up those costs for our sell rate. This exercise resulted in significant cost savings for our clients and the U.S. Government.
  • Generated 3PL market survey highlighting all potential 3PL service providers on the subject transport lanes and made recommendations on better service providers that were also more likely to be FAR/DFAR/FCPA compliant than existing solution
