Facilities Training Courses

The term Logistics evolved from the French logistique, itself from logerthe French for 'to lodge'. Initially used by the military to describe their supply operations the term is now used for the movement of goods throughout the global economy. DPSS know the importance of this and offer a range of Facilities Management Training Courses & Consultancy to help your company maximise your logistics ability.

Logistics is at the heart of worldwide commerce and touches every part of our daily lives; the food we eat, the products we use and the materials that make up our homes and places of work are all delivered by logistics.

At DPSS we understand the importance of an effective supply chain and the contribution that logistics makes to business success. Our specialist knowledge and experience in global supply chain operations fully supports our logistics consultancy and we have the strength in depth and global reach to help clients around the world.

We understand the importance of aligning your property and facilities strategy with your business goals to optimise delivery of results.
