High tech logistics solutions 

 

Computing and enterprise data centres

Our solutions give original design manufacturers (ODM) and original equipment manufacturers (OEM) control of the entire supply chain, from contract manufacturer to on-site installation at the end customer.

Supply chain management is becoming the key to success as equipment manufacturing takes place in multiple locations around the world.

OEMs are moving beyond disconnected products and services into original solution orchestrators (OSOs), which significantly increases the need for end-to-end process design, change management, analytics and project management skill sets within high-tech supply chain organisations.

Our data processing and storage solutions give you the necessary visibility and reliability to maintain full end-to-end control.

Telecommunication and network equipment

We provide manufacturers of voice and data infrastructure with agile logistics solutions for component and spare part warehousing and finished product distribution, including complete order fulfilment and postponement. We can also operate your after sales service centres and take care of returns and repairs.

We align our innovative cross-dock and merge-in-transit solutions with your changing needs and the demanding quality and safety standards of our telecommunication equipment manufacturers (TEM) and network equipment providers (NEP) customers.

Our “one-stop-shop” solution unites the various supply chain components. Our secure and high value distribution centres offer niche services such as armed escort services, air suspension and white glove deliveries.

Given the high value and short life cycles of products coming from TEM and NEP customers, our supply chain deliverable is to combine or merge the various  providers of commercial, off-the-shelf components to the two industries into a finished product just before delivery to the end customer.

Consumer electronics

Your reducing product life cycles need our efficient supply chain solutions to deliver end consumer brand satisfaction and maximise your profit.

Research tells us that between 50% and 70% of consumers buy an alternative product or leave a store empty handed when their product of choice is out of stock.

We also facilitate new product launches and provide after sales support, while our global network guarantees inbound freight capacity at scheduled lines.

Our specialised TAPA-A and Secure Distribution Centres offer you agility and critical economies of scale, and our distribution network ensures timely delivery, whether to a large retail chain’s DC or to a consumer’s home – and we reduce fraud by using biometric identity verification.

Since high tech products are a theft risk, we have, in South Africa, established a high value chain with enhanced security processes. This reduces the risk to your goods throughout the entire supply chain.

We also proactively advise you on reducing your carbon footprint as part of our commitment to the UN Global Compact initiative.

 

Reprographic equipment

Supply chains in the reprographic industry are consolidating to Remote Data Capture (RDC) and Electronic Data Capture (EDC) as digitalisation reduces demand for traditional black-and-white and colour printing. This is particularly evident in developed markets.

We offer you light manufacturing and configuration of finished products, installation services upon delivery, and repair/return services. We provide support for the post-installation requirements of your customers, including critical spare parts replenishment programs via our DSV Locker solution to support your technicians on the road.

Our variable cost base allows easy up and downscaling so you can adapt your supply chains to match changing market conditions.

Service differentiation and excellence in e-commerce

We integrate our IT platform into your e-commerce platform, providing visibility into inventory, order status and track and trace data - and giving you greater channel mobility, increased personalisation and more delivery models.

More than 50% of computers are sold online, and emerging opportunities such as m-commerce (mobiles/smartphones) and s-commerce (social media) are growing rapidly. Both sales and retention rates need logistics solutions that are agile and responsive to the market’s evolving needs.

The back-end

Will you tailor storage and pick solutions to meet my needs?

Yes. Whether you need storage in bulk, on shelves, in racks or in temperature-controlled environments, we will tailor a solution for you. And you can choose from a wide variety of picking principles, including 'First Expired, First Out' (FEFO), ‘Last In, First Out' (LIFO) and ‘First In, First Out’ (FIFO).

What do you offer apart from core technology and high tech logistics services?

Value-added services, which will be tailored to your needs, include: kitting/assembly, flashing, testing, configuration/customisation, repairs, quality inspection, and customs clearance procedures and fiscal representation.
