At the outset in 1999 two small consulting project inquiries arrived which logistics and transport expert Björn Klippel could not refuse. Even then, he already had amassed many years of practical experience in international transport and logistics consulting. 

In 1993, he developed an innovative logistical network concept for the thermal waste treatment plant in Bavaria. In 1995, he conducted a comprehensive logistics audit of a well-known stationery supplies manufacturer, and subsequently helped to develop its internal logistics strategy and still helps guide its service procurement activities.

This job was so exciting for Björn Klippel and so successful for his customers that he decided to establish a logistics consulting business. He realized that an opportunity existed for inventive and innovative solutions. Key was the recognition that market expertise, process know-how,  and best-practice evaluation would be energetically embraced, especially if  responsibility were assumed from initial research to implementation.

In retrospect and after more than 1,700 successfully completed  projects, this was a fortunate decision to build a stable, owner-run consulting firm. Thanks to lasting trust and well-earned regard of its many customers, TIM CONSULT can proudly look back on more than two decades of consulting and implementation work – made possible and shaped by international growth, continuous development of market expertise and process competence. Longstanding customer relationships: this is our proudest achievement.
