Launched at the start of September, 4D is a deugro group enterprise. It will operate independently and provide supply chain support, manpower provision, competence development, training, supply chain 4PL models, and benchmarking.

Tim Killen has been appointed managing director of 4D. Based in the UK, he has more than twenty years of experience in end-to-end logistics and supply chain solutions, including senior roles at deugro group, ALE and Alstom Power.

Arnoud Dekkers, who will also work out of the UK, was named 4D’s commercial director. Paolo Barbieri will serve as 4D’s operations director and is based in Italy. Vilasini Krishnan was also appointed as senior consultant.

“We are focused on supporting clients in delivering projects and operating assets efficiently, safely and in a reliable manner,” said Barbieri. "Our 4D service offerings span the entire project or asset life cycle, from the early stages of pre-project execution to project execution and onwards to operating the asset, including decommissioning and restoration.”
