Bulk & Mining supply chain optimisation

We negotiate on behalf of our customers haulage contracts, prepare tenders and offer procurement assistance.
We provide independent due diligence review of the logistical parameters in existing or proposed bulk logistics operations.
We provide peer reviews of logistics studies performed by third parties.
Transition to green bulk supply chains
The global supply chains account for 80% of planet's carbon emissions (Bloomberg - Oct 2021).
As the transition to sustainable supply chains becomes a necessity, the mining, quarrying and other industries with large bulk outputs are challenged by the implementation of green policies.
We can assist you in choosing the right timing, right assets and the level of green policy implementation so the transition is as smooth as possible, balancing the cost - benefit equation and minimising the CAPEX and OPEX.
Traffic studies and surveys
Rusu Consulting performs traffic studies with the aim to assess the viability of any proposed road operation.
We own and operate 2 TMS-SA4 traffic counters (radars) with an autonomy of up to 3 weeks in any location.
The primary objectives of our road traffic studies include:
Traffic Volume Analysis: Gathering data on the number of vehicles using the roads, including peak and off-peak hours, to understand traffic patterns and determine the level of congestion.
Traffic Flow Analysis: Examining the movement of vehicles on the road network, including intersections, bottlenecks, and road segments, to identify areas of congestion, potential conflicts, and operational issues.
Rusu Consulting Independent Bulk Logistics Consultant (previously trading as URB Mining Logistics Consulting) is offering transport options assessments and reliable estimates for the movement of bulk products, ores and/or concentrates from the proposed mine sites to the proposed loading port and further to the destination port.
During such logistics studies Rusu Consulting may investigate rail, road, barging, sea and hybrid options for both outbound and inbound flows.
The business's owner: Mirel Rusu, holds a Logistics and Supply Chain Management Master Degree (Adelaide), as well as a Master Degree in International Studies (Adelaide) and a Graduate Diploma Degree in Economics (Bucharest) and has spent more than ten years in mining supply chains & logistics.
