Our Company

Labyrinth Logistics Consulting is a privately owned UK based supply chain and logistics consultancy based in Leamington Spa. It was founded in the year 2000 as a specialist transport consultancy; but broadened its services following a merger with The Supply Chain Design Company in 2008. Owned and led by its two owners and directors, Ruth Waring and Jo Godsmark, Labyrinth provides a personal touch with blue chip expertise.

Although primarily a consultancy company Labyrinth has recently developed its services in two distinct ways: in 2013 Labyrinth launched the Labyrinth Safety Circle to bring Health & Safety practitioners from across the logistics industry together to share best practice and in late 2014 Labyrinth distilled years of transport compliance experience by developing and selling a unique transport compliance management and audit tool, SilkThread®.

Our Team

Labyrinth's team consists of employed and associate consultants. Some are focused on project work while others support compliance training and SilkThread® implementation. Our associate consultant model allows us to offer specialists tailored to a project’s requirements. Most of our associates have worked with Labyrinth for many years on a variety of projects and assignments.

Below are the directors of Labyrinth Logistics Consulting who head a dedicated team of associate consultants.
