Lex’ structured way of working, seniority and the speed in which he acquainted himself with our business were impressive. I highly recommend him for operational and strategic supply chain assigments.
A committed colleague who takes his responsibilities seriously. Pursuing the agreed business targets but not losing sight of the interests of the stakeholders involved. In short: a great colleague to work with.
Despite high time pressure, a thorough RFQ process has been carried out, in which Lex had an important role with his thoroughness and humor. A sound foundation for a successful implementation with the selected provider.
During the many years I worked with Lex, he lead many succesful initiatives and implementations. I would recommend him to any organization who needs Supply Chain and Logistics leadership and expertise, with a good track record of delivering results.
Great appreciation for the input Lex Kop gave to the distribution logistics roadmap for China. His down to earth approach, sharp analysis and open feedback greatly contributed to our thinking.
Our succesfull outsourcing project in Brazil has been achieved with the excellent integration of the experience, knowledge and commitment of Lex Kop.

During my first years working at Unilever, Lex gave me the opportunity to understand how logistics work and that a simple way of thinking is usually the best way to solve very difficult problems. A great mentor !
A great organizer who makes sure the project stays on track.
With LogiLex, I dedicate myself with great passion to successfully changing the supply chain and logistics in customer-oriented organizations. The goal is clear: to bring structural improvements from a strategic point of view. I focus on medium-sized and larger companies.
I gained many years of experience in various industries: food, FMCG, chemicals, logistics services and public transport. In various roles I have taken responsibility: as line manager, program manager, project manager, change manager, interim manager, consultant and coach. Always initiating, analyzing, organizing and realizing.
Program manager, interim manager, consultant and coach
My involvement with logistics and the entire supply chain has started early on. As a child, I grew up with my father's transport company. I saw the growing demand for customized deliveries and just-in-time, the increasing complexity of the logistics process, the growing dependencies in the supply chain and the advancing digitization.
After completing my Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering at TU Delft, I got involved at TNO with industrial processes. In national and international positions at companies such as Unilever, Tibbett & Britten (DHL), RET, Diversey (cleaning and hygiene) and Farm Frites, I developed myself as an independent specialist in the area of supply chain and logistics. Since 2012 I have been working with LogiLex to optimize the supply chain of various companies.
Analytical, pragmatic and people-oriented
Thanks to my broad experience, I am able to analyze the supply chain from the strategic perspective. I enjoy working with people: building a team, getting to the core issues, working in a goal-oriented and practical way and achieving unprecedented results together.
The basis is a structured and clear action plan. It is important to come to good working agreements with each other and on this, I do not shy away from clear communication. Only then we can quickly take the right steps to make projects successful, to manage the organization effectively and to bring about fundamental improvements in the entire supply chain.
I manage project teams, supervise the employees during the entire process and if necessary manage external parties (e.g. suppliers, technical specialist). My role is temporary, but during the process I ensure that structural changes are realized and secured. Your company will then be able to retain the new achievements and further develop them.
