Logistics & Supply Chain

09 B logistics

A volatile global economic environment and changes in the supply chain, combined
with intense competition and continued market consolidation are reshaping the logistics
sector. New technology and the drive towards a global footprint by many operators present
significant challenges, but also unprecedented opportunities for the industry’s innovators.

In this fast-changing industry, leading businesses must continue to adapt to create
competitive advantage. With big shifts in many of the industry’s key markets –
from retail to consumer goods and automotive, to the changing priorities of public transport
services, staying ahead of the game has never been tougher.

Disruption across the logistics sector is changing the profile of its senior executives,
creating a pressing need for visionary thinkers with the capacity to drive change.

Penrhyn’s logistics specialists have recruited executives at all senior levels, including
CEOs, CFOs, CIOs and CCOs, as well as national, regional and global directors and
vice presidents. Our global reach and in-depth understanding of the logistics sector enable us to
identify high caliber candidates across all business functions – from operations and HR, to finance, IT and commercial.
