Adam Chazanow, Graphene Partners
The changing 3PL landscape: opportunities and risks for logistics operators
Adam Chazanow is the founder and Managing Partner of Graphene Partners, a leading supply chain advisory firm focusing on CEE and the UK. From 2000 to 2010, Adam held senior management roles with global logistics and courier industry firms such as DHL, CEVA Logistics and GeoPost/DPD. Graphene Partners has delivered in excess of EUR 150 million in annualised savings to its Clients, completing over 100 projects in 11 countries for retailers, manufacturers, 3PLs and private equity firms. Areas of expertise include: network optimisation, strategic outsourcing, supply chain and customer service transformation, inventory reduction, warehouse design and process optimisation, as well as extensive M&A work. Adam firmly believes a huge amount of supply chain value can still be unlocked with basic and “unsexy” improvements to organisational design and process, which are often overlooked in favour of over-hyped large-ticket technology investments.
