What our clients have to say

  • Road transport is such a big part of our industry’s costs that we needed someone to help clarify and prioritise our options and optimise efficiencies. Advantia delivered a thorough report that clearly set out a roadmap for infrastructure investment to benefit the dairy industry.

  • Whilst transport may not be Petuna’s core business, it does make up an important and significant part of our overall cost structure and is an integral link in our supply chain to market. We recently reviewed our supply chain with the purpose of taking our outsourced tanker logistics contracts to tender.

    Advantia’s guidance and insight enabled us to understand and appreciate the significant productivity benefits that PBS could bring to our business in order to change the conversation with potential suppliers to gain a competitive advantage. This insight was the key to unlocking material cost savings as well as operational efficiencies for our business, even up and downstream from the freight contract.
