Colin Rabjohn is the owner of Logistics Works and has nearly 30 years experience in logistics and supply chain.  He is a production engineer by training and logistics “found him” in 1980 when he joined the then National Materials Handling Centre at Cranfield University as a consultant.  From there he moved into the 3pl sector, holding senior roles within Exel Logistics, Danzas, Tibbett & Britten (all now part of DHL) and TDG, before moving back into consultancy in 2004.

 

His experience covers a wide range of industries including Fashion Retail, Food Manufacturing and Retail, Pharmaceuticals, Spare Parts and the Public Sector.  He has worked extensively across mainland Europe, including extended periods in Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands as well as in the UK, USA and Russia.

 

His key area of expertise is in warehousing and he has designed and implemented several high profile facilities, including automated operations.  He also has a strong track record of performance improvement and cost reduction and has a knack for spotting relatively small changes that can reap large rewards by applying lean principles and focussed data analysis.
