You want to ensure the safe and timely distribution of goods through an agile, intelligent and lean operation. And without additional capital expenditure. Service challenges, bifurcated supply chains and workforce dynamics are taxing for transportation and distribution leaders. You need to be reducing costs, transforming operations and effectively managing unexpected disruptions.
It is difficult.
And yet we do it for our clients every day. And the results we deliver last.
Do you need to improve fleet utilization?
Do you need to install further automation and train your employees to adapt?
Do you need to reduce maintenance costs?
Do you need to improve terminal time usage?
This is what we do.
And we do it by focusing on your people. We use our know-how to design and implement best practices and training on maintenance, safety and operations. Reducing overtime hours, operating penalties and crew fatigue, we facilitate employees’ ability to direct efforts towards maximizing asset utilization, cost reduction and safe delivery of services.
As we work together with the people doing the work we uncover processes that are not required or can be fixed to save lost time. Simple fixes costing a few dollars can save minutes here and there saving thousands of dollars over the year. Fixing the frustrations of the people means more engagement from the team and a better work culture.
Understanding why, fixing frustrations, meaningful investments, team engagement - all these factors together are the secret to long lasting change. When people have 'things done to them' they will revert to previous behaviour very quickly. When they change because they understand the difference it will make then that change will last.
We design, implement and accelerate operational and digital transformation through people. We partner with organizations to solve strategically important problems that impede top-line growth or bottom-line results.
This allows us to create new capabilities and harness the power of your people to build an engaged culture, turbocharge leadership, and implement improved operating models.
Through collaboration with your front-line supervision, your middle management, and your senior executives, we fully implement solutions that transform your operations - the way you and your people do business.

Processes that once accommodated 30 to 40 stores were no longer efficient. Working with Proudfoot on our ‘ground floor’ showed us that it was possible to not only simplify many of our day-to-day activities, but to also plan and expedite them.

Air France gave added impetus to the issue of workplace safety with a pilot programme launched at Orly International Airport to coach its ground staff. With work-related accidents on the runway down by 50% during this period, results are very encouraging for Orly.

Our engagement with Proudfoot has been one of the most significant undertakings BNSF has ever accomplished.
Kevin Abbott, Chief Executive Officer
One of the most valuable aspects of the project was how well the joint Proudfoot and Alpha teams worked together to identify and successfully implement the changes needed. What impressed me most of all is the resulting empowerment. The strong team spirit combined with the skills taught have enabled us to sustain the change. Proudfoot contributed significantly in making this a much better business.
