Resolve Solution Partners has won a Silver Award at the 28th annual Logistics Achiever Awards, held in Johannesburg last night. The award recognises a unique alliance with Resolve, an Imperial group company, our client PFG Building Glass, and transporter Imperial Dedicated Contracts.
These awards honour companies for excellence in logistics and supply chain management, and are the culmination of a stringent judging process during which nominees went through numerous rounds of submissions and site visits, as well as presentations to a judging panel comprising representatives of the various professional institutes, vocational societies and trade or industry associations involved in logistics and supply chain management in Southern Africa.
“Resolve’s three year contract to set up and operate PFG’s logistics command centre at its Springs plant is based on a gain share principle where profit is only earned through transport savings achieved,” explains Cobus Rossouw, Chief Business Development Officer at Imperial Logistics. “It is a ground-breaking contract because the transporter is included in the gain share earnings, and this three-party alliance is completely focused on efficiency and cost savings.”
This new logistics command centre has to date improved fleet efficiency and turnaround times, boosted customer service and delivered significant cost savings for client PFG.
Our congratulations also go to Imperial Health Sciences, who took home a Silver Award for a “three-in-one” project that is delivering multiple benefits for the company and its clients through the integration of its pharmaceutical wholesaling business Pharmed, as well as some services offered by Imperial Retail Logistics, into the Imperial Health Sciences’ operation in Cape Town.
Imperial also won an Enviro Award for its contribution to “greening” African supply chains. This undertaking has yielded insights that are enabling the group to reduce its energy consumption and cut costs, through small, simple changes to management procedures and employee behaviours.
