Why did Röhlig-Grindrod Win a Gold Award at The 2019 Logistics Achiever Awards?
Röhlig-Grindrod is a leading logistics provider with a large global footprint and an impressive network in Southern Africa. The company specialises in providing a complete logistical offering that ranges from freight forwarding, customs clearing, contract logistics and national distribution amongst other value added solutions.
The new facility in Linbro Park, Johannesburg is a product of the challenges experienced due to systemic growth in the business.
The former four facilities were consolidated into one facility and this brought about effectiveness in our operation, flexibility to our customers and huge financial benefits to the organisation. The space challenges of the past brought about its own complexities, which at times resulted in compromised service delivery to our customers. In the newly designed flow through of the warehouse coupled with the globally leading Warehouse Management System, JDA, the operation has been largely automated which lives to the creed of delivering superior customer satisfaction
The facility serves as a key enabler within our strategy to secure new business. As contract logistics is generally seen as the last mile, contract logistics is used as an enabler to secure additional business in the form of freight forwarding and customs clearing.
The warehouse, which was designed to cater for multi-faceted customer needs, consists of 21000 Square Meters, with a capacity to store and transition 36000 pallets.
Based on the innovative thoughts and intellectual investments, the operation has achieved an overall KPI achievement in excess of 99.93%.
The above-mentioned successes and continuous improvement initiatives have elevated the Röhlig-Grindrod brand internationally. It has further enabled the business to deliver customised and technologically advanced solutions to the market.
