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.
As equipment manufacturing now takes place in different parts of the world, supply chain management is becoming the core competency, replacing production management.
OEMs are moving beyond disconnected products and services into original solution orchestrators (OSOs), which dramatically 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.
Our innovative cross-dock and merge-in-transit solutions are always aligned with your ever changing demands and the stringent quality and safety standards of our TEM and NEP customers.
With our one-stop-shop solution, we unite the dense DS road freight network and TAPA-A regional distribution centres with strategic third party partnerships to offer niche services like in-night delivery services and white glove deliveries.
Given the high value and short life cycles of products coming from telecommunication equipment manufacturers (TEM) and network equipment providers (NEP), our supply chain deliverable is to combine or merge the various providers of commercial, off the shelf components to the telecommunications and network equipment industry into a finished product just before delivery to the end customer.
Our supply chain solutions are critically important to your reducing product life cycles. Between 50% and 70% of consumers buy an alternative product or leave a store empty handed when their first product choice is out of stock. This shows how important supply chain efficiency is for brand satisfaction and profit maximisation.
We facilitate new product launches and offer after sales support, while our global network guarantees inbound freight capacity at scheduled lines.
Our specialised TAPA-A 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.
Additionally, as part of our commitment to the UN Global Compact initiative, we proactively advise you on carbon footprint reduction.
Supply chains in the reprographic industry are consolidating to Remote Data Capture (RDC) and Electronic Data Capture (EDC) as digitalisation has slashed demand for traditional black-and-white and colour printing in developed markets.
We have a long history serving the printing and copying equipment market and offer you light manufacturing and configuration of finished products, installation services upon delivery, repair/return services and spare part distribution.
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, offering 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 fast. Meeting logistics requirements plays an important role in increasing retention rates.
