Start with Why.

I must admit having a kind of scepticism about consultancies. So, what do I do differently?

I have made it my own policy to only pursue projects whose usefulness for my clients I can understand and whose knowledge I can make a valuable contribution to. At the same time, I deeply believe in fairness and eye-level in business dealings, especially when it comes to long-term contractual relations between two companies. Therefore, I take the liberty of working for companies, entrepreneurs and managers who share my value system in terms of the relationship between people & companies.

At heart I am a convinced generalist and through my professional stations I am an expert in many fields. I feel comfortable on both, shopfloors as well as Board rooms.

The combination of different fields of competence and many years of intensive project experience makes my difference:

  1. Strategy and concept design in warehousing & fulfillment
  2. Expertise contract design & negotiations as well as conflict resolution
  3. Operational background in heading logistics sites and companies myself
  4. Deep knowledge how to successfully collaborate with 3PLs

In my projects, I work exclusively for the “shipper side”, i.e. for customers who are industrial, production or retail/ wholesale companies. I maintain best relationships with all professional contract logistics service providers, but I do not run projects for them. Only in the context of conflict resolution am I usually mandated by both sides!

What else do you need to consider?
In my projects, I feel like a sparring partner for my clients and – for a time – part of the decision-maker level. You are not only buying into my expertise in the project, but also a network of experts and relationships built up over decades – on this basis I can solve (almost) any challenge with you.

In addition, it helps a lot to feel connected with me and ultimately perceive me as being sympathetic. Otherwise you will have a hard time with my honesty during the project, which does not mean that I am not diplomatic. If you are looking for real & independent opinions, you are even more welcome.


100% Confidentiality
I interact with all sorts of players in the logistics industry within the framework of projects and via my network. I guarantee 100% confidentiality for your topics - even before signing a NDA.
Conflict Check
Prior to each mandate, I check possible conflicts with my ongoing activities or projects – no matter if these conflicts occur by nature or might have a financial or moral character. If such a conflict exists, I will not support the individual project.
No Commissions
My projects typically do not focus on cost savings only. Accordingly, I never work on a commission basis, but based on day rates and the extent of services actually provided to my clients.
No quotas
Of course, I usually estimate the budget for my project support to the best of my knowledge. But there is no obligation in terms of man day quotas for my clients at all. If you want to end or extend the cooperation, you can do so at any time during the project.
