“Greggs engaged with DCB Associates to carry out some strategic modelling of our radial distribution network based on future growth projections and potential changes to our distribution model. The outputs from this process have provided us with real and accurate information upon which to base future investment strategies for our logistics network, and has already enabled us to step into some investment opportunities with confidence. Craig and Sultan were a pleasure to work with throughout, often turning pieces of analysis around ahead of assumed deadlines. The outputs and analysis provided were clear, accurate and well presented, and in a format that enabled effective internal stakeholder discussions. I would not hesitate to use DCB Associates again”
Phil Wright - Head of Logistics, Greggs plc
“I used DCB Associates to carry out several strategic solutions during our business transformation. I supplied the data to the team and explained the scenarios I had in mind. We engaged in a meeting and several conference calls to determine the output of the data. I am more than pleased with speed and professionalism of both Craig and Sultan. The output data supplied to me was clear and accurate which enabled me to make our strategic decisions quicker and with confidence. If in the future we require more consultancy then DCB will be my first contact. I have been in the industry for quite some time and would highly recommend DCB.
Alan Newton - Head of Distribution and Fleet Management, Wolseley plc
"The RNLI were recommended to work with DCB by another customer who has used their Services previously on the basis that:
1) They would make sure we were output focussed and clear on what would be in/ out of scope from the start
2) They would ensure we could track progress and measure success
3) They would deliver what was contracted in a timely manner and without trying to broaden the scope.
After selecting DCB through our sourcing process we have been working with them for over a year.
I can fully reinforce the recommendation I was given but would also add that DCB have significantly helped our data accuracy and data gathering processes and performance tracking at the RNLI and have provided us with great advice throughout our time working with them."
Claire Deuchar - Supply Chain Director and CIO, RNLI
"DCB was an important partner in the transformation of our transport department. By using state of the art tools we gained insights into the routing and people deployment. It helped us to optimise the fleet planning resulting in a reduced number of trucks and better utilisation. The key performance indicators helped us in creating daily operational grip which have brought significant cost savings."
Dieter Avonds - Regional Director, Icova Netherlands, Shanks plc
"Having worked with DCB on a number of projects, they were my immediate recommendation to the team at Secured Mail when there was a requirement for a full network review to cope with expansion, including ideal depot locations, optimised vehicle routing and revised trunk schedules. The results were outstanding, the project delivered on time, and the subsequent cost savings and service improvements have been realised. I will certainly be contacting DCB in the near future as we move into the next phase of our development."
Paul Carvell - Chairman, The Delivery Group
"I have known Craig Bunker for nearly 20 years. During that time I have used his professional services on several occasions , especially where complex Paragon or CAST modelling skills were required. Craig has detailed knowledge of logistics operations, especially in the parcel and home delivery sector. I have never known DCB miss a deadline, even some that were unreasonable. Thoroughly recommend"
Liam Tucker - Head of Hubs and Trunking, DX
You want Craig and his team as your supplier, because he works tenaciously to understand the customer dynamic and what they are trying to achieve. He will then build a relevant and compelling solution.
Craig is a strong presenter because he paints a picture of what life will be like with his solution and how to manage the change. Never forgetting the ROI or benefit! Customers and prospects are always impressed with his deep knowledge, understanding and therefore relevance of promise and cannot help but feel his genuine enthusiasm.
Finally he delivers and the customer becomes a partner.
He and his team will add value to your business.
Bernard Hewitt - Chairman, WEX
