Barloworld Logistics has a formidable track record in developing smart supply chain solutions for clients across a multitude of industries. We do this by forming powerful partnerships with clients by aligning their supply chain to their business strategy.
One of the key insights to come out of the 13th annual Barloworld Logistics supplychainforesight report, is the rising importance of logistics and supply chain management in achieving business success. Increasingly, smart companies are recognising that the supply chain can no longer be viewed as a separate function: the management of supply chains should be integral to the core business vision and overall strategy. Indeed, it can no longer be viewed as separate - or belonging to a certain department or team.
A smart supply chain is all about enabling business objectives by connecting ideas to smart processes, and people to products. In 2004 Illovo South Africa, Africa’s largest sugar producer had a strong objective – to increase domestic market share and improve supply chain efficiencies. To realise these important objectives, Illovo South Africa entered into one of the largest partnership agreements in the logistics market at that time with Barloworld Logistics.
Our implementation of a smart supply chain solution enabled Illovo South Africa to successfully achieve increased domestic sales, supporting both local and global growth.
