Distribution Agreement


Vector Logistics’ long-standing relationship with Pick ‘n Pay has been cemented with a new contract making Vector Logistics responsible for distributing Pick ‘n Pay’s entire basket of frozen products, including ice-cream, across all its store formats nationwide.
“It made sense for Vector to take on the extended role, having demonstrated its capability and already having managed most of Pick ‘n Pay’s frozen consolidation. The agreement also now includes the ice-cream category, which was a natural extension of our capabilities,” Chris Creed, MD of Vector, explains.
“Part of the intellectual property we developed around ice-cream distribution required us to rethink our warehouse flow to maintain a constant -25-degree temperature, backed by our truck design IP which prevents temperature deviations in transit.
“Our infrastructure proved itself more than capable of meeting Pick ‘n Pay’s requirements for both general frozen goods and the highly sensitive ice-cream category,” says Chris.
He comments that the contract is a significant landmark in the general market’s move towards a more consolidated, customer-led model. “By jointly finding the best way to service Pick ‘n Pay stores, we can improve service levels at the front end, while delivering a more cost-effective world class supply chain to the retailer.”
