Perspex South Africa has recently joined forces with Tigers SA in an effort to provide customers with enhanced service delivery. After signing a three-year contract, the Perspex SA Gauteng branch has agreed to partner with the logistics and transportation company for all their warehousing and distribution needs.
As market leaders in sub-Saharan Africa for over 60 years, Perspex South Africa has a long-standing reputation for providing quality Perspex® cast acrylic products, as well as extruded acrylics, styrenics, polycarbonate, aluminium composite sheeting, polypropylene, polyethylene and extruded polyurethane products.
Through this newly formed partnership the company hope to improve their service offering on a wider basket of products, and in doing so they aim to reach their objective of being a truly world class supplier.
“We wanted to team up with a partner in the truest sense of the word. Our business needed to be critical to our partner just as their service is critical to us,” explains Stuart Hughes, Perspex SA Managing Director.
This decision will not only give Perspex SA access to Tigers’ state-of-the-art systems and global infrastructure, but will also enable the global logistics company to extend its reach in South Africa.
From forwarding and clearing to distribution and warehousing, Tigers will be providing a cradle to grave service. And with a larger warehouse and extra vehicles, Perspex SA will be able to ensure quicker turnaround times on picking and packing and improved delivery times. Full visibility of all products throughout this entire supply chain will also enhance the company’s capacity to provide clients with timeous and accurate delivery information.
In addition to this, the partnership will lay the groundwork to make online purchasing a reality for Perspex SA clients in the immediate future. This platform will allow clients to check stock, order and receive delivery time confirmation instantaneously – either from their mobile devices or from the comfort of their office.
Set to commence on the 1st July 2017, the business collaboration will see the Perspex SA Guateng branch moving – on a phased basis- into new office space, as well as a 4,600 square metre warehouse in a secure business estate in Isando. The first phase will see stock moved to the new warehouse, with operations commencing from this warehouse on Monday 19 June 2017. The second phase will be the office move which will see Perspex South Africa operating from its new offices on Monday 3 July 2017.
“Perspex South Africa will work tirelessly with Tigers SA to ensure that the transition is smooth and that clients see the benefit of this strategic partnership in the shortest possible timeframe,” says Hughes.
