Supply chain used to be a relatively niche, siloed industry.
In the wake of the pandemic, whether you’re in the industry or just wondering when those empty shelves will carry your favorite products again…the supply chain is everyone’s concern. That’s why we at Miebach Consulting are excited to be launching Speaking of Supply Chain… the show dedicated to spotlighting the most pressing supply chain issues and the organizations, people, and technology solving them.
Join us as we discuss some of the supply train trends, challenges, and solutions you can expect to hear in future episodes:
- Why supply chain matters now more than ever
- The biggest issues facing the supply chain, from carbon emissions in your sourcing strategy to last-mile delivery logistics (and everything in between!)
- How Miebach Consulting solves supply chain woes — and why we were inspired to launch the show
Episode 3 - Going Hand in Hand: Supply Chain and Real Estate
The alliance of real estate and supply chain is a lot more valuable than you might think. A combination that, up until now, has been underutilized by industry experts.
Thankfully, that is all changing as more supply chain companies realize the value in buildings and other real estate options.
Creating an even more transparent process while filling in the gaps for labor requirements.
Sophie James, Senior Consultant at Miebach Consulting, and Kate Jones, Business Development Director, Industrial & Logistics at JLL, join Ellen this week to discuss how real estate and supply chain are finally coming together.
“When we get the chance to explain how this benefits the client, it makes complete sense. There isn’t a real offering elsewhere on the market for this joint alliance. It's saving time, effort and money by having more transparency earlier on in the process.”

Episode 2 - It Is All Fun and Games in Supply Chain
Thanks to The Fresh Connection, learning about supply chain can be an immersive, interactive experience for anyone and everyone around the globe.
No more boring conference rooms. No more uninspired graphs and charts.
To walk us through how the game operates and how it's being used by companies, Ellen speaks with Hans Kremer, Co-Founder and Director at Inchainge, and Alex Waterinckx, Leader Consulting Supply Chain Planning at Miebach. They share some insights and how consultants are using this to support their clients.
"Supply chain outcomes and success depend on practically everyone in the company and lots of functional departments. It's all about collaboration and communication, which is not rocket science. Give them the experience of how everything is connected so they can connect those dots."

Episode 1 - Finding the Sweet Spot for Urban Logistics
Think of all the Amazon packages or food deliveries you’ve had in the past two years – To say that the demand for last-mile delivery services has skyrocketed since the beginning of the pandemic is an understatement!
Increased demand means increased strain on the supply chain. Not only that, but companies are under extreme pressure from their governments to make sure that their practices are sustainable as well. This week on Speaking of Supply Chain, Marius Bungenstock-Siemon, Senior Consultant at Miebach Consulting, and Erik van der Vliet, Senior Director of Business Development Industrial Leasing Germany at JLL, discuss the issues facing urban logistics and how it is impacted by the increase of the demand-economy.
