The Journey from Road to Rail

Expertise and collaboration puts a smart partnership on the right track

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.

Through the implementation of well managed rail supply chain solutions, cargo is converted from road to rail, service delivery is enhanced and the time to market is significantly reduced. In addition, carbon emissions and road congestion around the key industrial locations is dramatically decreased.

A smart supply chain is all about enabling business objectives by connecting ideas to smart processes, and people to products. In 2016 ArcelorMittal (AMSA), Africa’s largest steel producer had a threefold strategy – to meet client service requirements, managing environmental impact and continuously monitor costs to remain competitive on a global stage. To realise these important objectives, AMSA sought a partner who could translate their vision of an integrated, intermodal supply chain into a reality. Barloworld Logistics’, through a Memorandum of Understanding with Transnet Freight Rail, was able to offer a managed rail solution enabling AMSA strategic objectives.
