Within the five core supply chain capabilities we use to establish world-class supply chains and operations that grow substantial endless value (i.e. Supply Chain Performance, Strategy, Network, Processes and Resources), there are over 60 skill sets required at expert levels to deliver this value.
We maintain a large expert team with the capability and capacity to deliver this value to our client base and will continue to build and grow our team.

HIGH QUALITY STANDARDS:
Our high quality standards result in generating the highest levels of returns for our clients at the least risk.

We are the work.

POWERED FOR SUCCESS:
We boast a 12-year-strong low-risk business model, 95% virtual operation with an Australia-wide reach, and leverage the comprehensive business management system and shared infrastructure of our parent company LSC Solutions Pty Ltd.
Supply Chain Manager® is powered and supported by LSC Solutions Pty Ltd which has been established since 2004. Our low-risk business model allows us to rapidly scale up and scale down in alignment with marketplace demand. This means there are no losses that need to be made up for when times are good, unlike other consultancies with large under-utilised employee consultants and extremely high overheads which are recovered through their client fees.
We are proudly a 95% virtual operation with an Australia-wide reach, supported by our company’s comprehensive business management system and shared infrastructure. Only excellently run supply chain consultancies are in the best position to provide clients with the type of support that generates the highest levels of return on investment at the least risk. We are experts at managing risk, and at unleashing and creating substantial endless value for our clients and for our company.
