May 29, 2018: Imperial Logistics and Lindt & Sprüngli have strengthened their seven-year old partnership by renewing the contract for warehousing and distribution management.

“Imperial Logistics is proud to have played a role in Lindt’s South African success story since 2011, and this contract renewal represents our commitment to constantly meeting our client’s exacting, world class quality standards, and to continuously innovating, improving and expanding our capabilities, in order to better meet Lindt’s needs,” commented Imperial Logistics chief strategy officer Cobus Rossouw.

Imperial has invested in temperature controlled vehicles throughout the supply chain, to ensure that the quality of Lindt & Sprüngli’s superior, temperature sensitive products is never compromised. All warehouses, including receiving and distribution facilities are temperature controlled throughout. Double-rack trailers that have been incorporated into Imperial Logistics’ dedicated Lindt fleet are delivering cost savings.

The solutions that Imperial Logistics provides to Lindt include reefer container inbound handling, warehousing, outbound transport and distribution and reverse logistics. The value added Imperial Logistics capabilities that enhance this partnership include co-packing services such as labelling, unpacking products down to the consumer units, kitting, repacking and display building.

Since winning its first Lindt contract seven years ago, Imperial Logistics’ partnership with the confectionery leader has gone from strength to strength. Imperial Logistics undertakes continuous staff training, to ensure awareness and understanding of the sensitivity of Lindt’s products. “Co-packing was a new business capability that Imperial Logistics was only beginning to explore but in our partnership with Lindt, it has proved to be a resounding success,” said Rossouw.
