Tigers South Africa opens dedicated ecommerce centre at Johannesburg facility
Tigers South Africa has launched a dedicated e-commerce centre at its Johannesburg, South Africa, warehouse facility.
August 19, 2019: Tigers South Africa has launched a dedicated e-commerce centre at its Johannesburg, South Africa, warehouse facility, as the online retail market continues to grow globally.
The centre is equipped with the Tigers-developed ScanPak App that allows staff to conduct scan checks while packing shipments and create waybills for packages to ensure efficient handling of goods.
"The new e-commerce facility will take Tigers South Africa to the next level, as the online retail market continues to be a key focus for us. With the ongoing e-commerce revolution and digital technology transforming the way consumers shop, we find ourselves in a very good strategic position to further enhance and grow this vertical for Tigers," said Paul Lawrence, managing director, Tigers South Africa.
"As with most Tigers solutions, ScanPak is replicable, and we will roll out the same solution in Cape Town by the end of August."
The e-commerce centre is the first of its kind for Tigers in South Africa, and the move coincides with the recent announcement about freight rate quote engine Doozee being rolled-out across Tigers' global internal network.
"E-commerce is a key market for Tigers, particularly as digital technology and online retail continue to drive innovation in the logistics and supply chain sector. The new dedicated e-commerce centre in South Africa is an important investment for the future direction of Tigers and is a testament to the hard work of the team in South Africa in developing the new facility," said Andrew Jillings, chief executive officer, Tigers.
