CLIENTS AT THE FOREFONT
Trust at all costs, value by all means
For the last 16 years, we have worked with hundred of companies in multiple sectors of industry. We have delivered value all over the world, from Vietnam to Brazil, from Australia to Nigeria, from Indonesia to Chile, from India to New Zealand. And along the adventure, we capitalised expertise, know-how, industry knowledge, stories, tips & tricks and we developed a fine understanding of what works and what doesn't in specific contexts.
We are proud of what we are and excited about what we'll become as a company. But our clients are the only reason we do what we do. We have learned so much from each of them over the last 16 years: the questions they've asked, the challenges they've faced, the decisions they've made, the expectations they've had... Our clients have fuelled CEL innovation culture, they have made us become more relevant, more practical, more value-focus, and more empathetic too. We are thankful for the trust they put in us and are committed to deliver always more value and lead the way toward Autonomous Supply Chain. Trust at all costs, value by all means. Today and Tomorrow. - Julien Brun, Managing Partner, CEL

ExpressLog Co., with 27% growth per year, has to build enough capacity to allow its operations to absorb sales potentials while maintaining a high service level. The Country Manager explained that he has been making extensive sales & marketing efforts and they were paying out. The company was on a good way to double revenue objectives and he could not accept his operation center to be a bottleneck toward sales. He wanted a new operation center with international equipment, standard processes well implemented and running fast.

Which transport mode and storage facility should be used? Which road, river and seaport infrastructure would be able to handle the flow? Which logistic service provider should be used?GreenElec first priority was to set up the most reliable supply chain to avoid any shortage on the Dutch power plant side. GreenElec asked CEL to help to identify the ideal location for the plant and to design and implement the inbound and outbound logistic system, taking into account Vietnam infrastructure constraints and development plans.
