About Our Mining Supply Chain Consulting

Consulting Project team CIS
Project Team


As founder, principal and senior adviser, we operate under my business name: Chris Brodie Consulting (CBC)


Our aims are to ensure that mining clients enjoy efficient, timely and cost-effective supply chains where stakeholder and investor expectations are met at every level and working capital, production and efficiency targets are not jeopardised.   We do this by:

  • Implementing and improving your supply chain;
  • Unlocking value;
  • Providing sustainable process and cost efficiency.


Too good to be true?  Not at all:

  • Demand and inventory management;
  • Procurement;
  • Warehousing;
  • Incoming logistics;
  • System alignment and process alignments;
  • HSE and personnel training.

All are key steps in supply chain. Ensuring that their efficacy is readily achievable is our expertise. 


Our clients find that help is often required to optimise supply chain efficiency, especially if permanent staff are running hard to stay ahead of supply problems or, all to often, are too busy bailing water to repair the boat.


Whether you are setting up future operations or simply wish to have your existing supply departments working smoothly, I and my team are available to dedicate time and energy into accomplishing this within tight time-frames and at a cost that is guaranteed to be outweighed by benefits that will accrue:

  • Inventory & obsolescence reduction;
  • ‘Days on hand’ reduction;
  • Service levels optimised;
  • Number of vendors reduced;
  • Discounts management improved;
  • G&A costs reduced;
  • Process cycle times reduced;
  • Customer satisfaction improvements.

Expect a 30-50% improvement for all of these.


We are often called in for special projects too:

  • Logistics surveys;
  • Systems implementation;
  • Change management;
  • Forensic investigations.

We provide dedicated operatives at every level to help complete special projects.


To harness the best of your Supply Chain: please call us.  We have the time and expertise to meet your needs.
