TRANSPORT: The Outsource Specialist
Recent Western Cape Business News
BUSINESSES outsource for many and varied reasons, gaining benefits such as increased focus and reduced cost, speed of delivery and customer satisfaction, reduced and shared risk and access to leading-edge technology.
Imperial Distribution’s Western Cape business development manager, Francois van Schalkwyk, says through its service offering of a dedicated, on-site distribution solution the company can customise various types of individual, non-integrated distribution solutions as well as integrated distribution services to satisfy customers’ requirements.
“We not only have the capacity and capability, but we already provide distribution solutions on an outsourced basis to various blue-chip customers, having established ourselves as an extension of their businesses”, he says.
Imperial Distribution has been operating across the country for more than 30 years. Nationally it has more than 650 vehicles available, employ more than 1 300 people and has warehousing facilities totalling more than 90 000 sq m.
This all makes for a comprehensive service, not only for companies who operate nationally, but even on a regional basis.
Taking on a new client, Imperial Distribution would undertake a detailed analysis of a company’s existing distribution infrastructure to identify any inefficiencies.
“With transport and even warehousing quite tight at the moment, Imperial Distribution can often effect substantial efficiency savings as we have the expertise and capacity to provide solutions best suited to clients”, he says. Not only has it its own fleet available for the transport component of distribution, but often Imperial may buy out clients’ existing fleets, van Schalkwyk says.“We deliver a more comprehensive solution, giving our customers time to focus on what they are good at, while we create value for them in terms of cost savings and customer satisfaction. Always living up to our motto of distribution excellence and quality relationships”, he says.
