Chris Brodie - Mining Supply Chain and Logistics Consultant


As an independent supply chain consultant to the mining industry with over 40 years’ experience (first mining assignment was Zambia in 1972), I warmly welcome you to my mining SCM site. 


Based in Telford Shropshire, I work under the auspices of Chris Brodie Consulting (CBC) for business purposes. 


As an independent, I am supported by a small team of administrative helpers and by an ever-increasing network of mining supply chain specialists around the world. 

Please check out my CV here.


My mining industry experience covers 14 years in Africa, 6 years in Turkey, 21 years in Central Asia and the intervening time as a consultant on every continent of the globe (except Antarctica, of course). 


My employed career reached the highest pinnacle of operational SCM with a well-known major with a spend of $1.4 bn p.a and I am now enjoying the fruits of my experience by helping others. You will see from my list of clients that I have worked with many companies, large and small.


From hands-on experience, I offer support over the full range of practical supply chain activities.  Please kindly take a closer look at the ways in which we look after the interests of our clients.


Our aim is to offer support and assistance at a modest cost that is more than met by savings that accrue from our knowledge and results.


I would be delighted to have the opportunity to discuss your supply chain needs, whether

-                      for a new mine,

-                      for process and system improvements,

-                      for SCM change management requirements

-                      or simply to provide an ongoing watch over your SCM. 


My personal aim and promise is to provide you with a demonstrably sustainable efficient, cost-effective and trouble-free supply operation at your mine.
