Organisation Description

Providing training to supply chain professionals for over thirty years, PMS courses are designed to equip attendees with the essential skills and knowledge for immediate application in the work place. Theory is fine but it’s the practical application of the skills and knowledge learned on our courses that will really make a difference to your business. Our practical, no-nonsense approach to training is what really differentiates PMS from other supply chain training providers. This is why clients such as HSBC, Panasonic, BAE Systems, The Met Office, Virgin Trains and Nestlé have been sending people on our courses for years.

We will train buyers to negotiate better deals, improve supplier performance and reduce risk exposure. We train stores, warehouse and stock control personnel to reduce stock losses and stockholding costs, increase stock accuracy and improve service to both internal stakeholders and customers.

Our two and three day face to face training courses offer a range of critical supply chain training topics for people that are new to the organisation or are more senior and experienced.
