“SCALA has a customer-first culture and delivers real business benefits, from helping clients to implement greener supply chain practices to enabling them to enhance their profitability.
“Businesses have experienced a turbulent few years which have impacted their supply chains and logistics in turn. But the pace of change, driven by factors from the environment to technology, will only continue to accelerate over the next decade. I’m looking forward to working alongside the SCALA team to help clients navigate changing business requirements, tackle future industry challenges, and remain competitive.”
