Chief Executive Officer at 7bridges
Philip's background is in analysis and development within management consultancy and specialist logistics provisioning.
He co-founded 7bridges after he had seen first-hand the challenges that companies faced with their logistics, and how much money and resources were being wasted as businesses attempted to wrestle their supply chains into an efficient state.
"7bridges got us up and operating in the US market within a month. That’s fast, and we’re saving 50% to 60% on the total logistics cost of serving this new market."
