Agency and Distributorship

Imperial Logistics designs and manages integrated operating procedures, supporting both the planning and execution of the distribution process with parallel quality control systems intended to ensure order fulfilment.

Modern day logistics is more than transportation, as the focus has shifted to having a partner who specialises in an area of expertise. With Imperial Logistics as your distribution partner, you can have the confidence that your goods will be distributed accurately, efficiently and on time.

Imperial Logistics ensures safe, secure distribution of your goods both nationally in South Africa and cross-border into various African countries. Time to market and responsiveness is expedited by increasing direct order fulfilment; and with better customer driven communication and services, customer satisfaction is guaranteed.

With a pool of supply chain experts and vast knowledge of distribution management, we specialise in the analysis and design of efficient and cost-effective distribution solutions, tailored for specific industry requirements. We have a proven track record of improving our clients’ bottom line and adhering to service delivery KPIs where it is most critical, to ensure improved sales execution. Our tactical support and solutions design includes distribution network design, inventory optimisation and route-to-market alternatives.

Our distribution expertise encompasses formal markets, as well as Africa’s complex, but increasingly important, informal markets. Our clients reap the benefits of our substantial geographic footprint across Africa, as well as the invaluable business intelligence that we are able to feed back to them, to ensure that their products reach their markets in the most efficient and cost-effective way.

Owned distribution facilities mean that our clients get the tailored solution best suited to their products, industry and specific requirements – whether this is a multi-principal or dedicated distribution approach. We offer the flexibility and cost advantages of sharing space, labour, equipment and transportation. While creating economy of scale and achieving tangible customer benefits, we focus on each customer and consistently deliver excellent service through dedicated key account management structures.

Imperial Logistics specialises in the management of distribution centres among other dedicated logistics services.

Whether a client needs to distribute product in bulk or break-bulk, or move product between distribution centres or direct-to-store, we identify the best solution. We offer break bulk consolidation and small parcel, high speed delivery both locally and internationally. Managing service levels between Logistics Service Providers and across the supply chain, we ensure efficiency and value for our customers.

By leveraging off Imperial Logistics as your outsourced partner- whether on a 3PL, 4PL and/or LLP basis - distribution efficiencies can bring increased margin opportunities and lower total logistics costs for your business.
