Imperial Logistics’ initial three year contract with Quantum Foods has been extended for five years based on its continued success in delivering efficiency enhancements and cost savings while distributing 12 million eggs annually.
The scope of Imperial Logistics’ contract encompasses all outbound distribution to Nulaid customers. Inbound distribution is also undertaken in Gauteng, where the organisation transports eggs from laying farms to packing stations.
In addition, Imperial Logistics delivers primary inbound loads from Gauteng to Durban and Komatiepoort, says Imperial Logistics chief strategy officer, Cobus Rossouw.
To optimise its solution to Nulaid, the supply chain and logistics company has invested in purpose-built ‘egg spec’ vehicles, with insulated bodies, vents and fans. The trucks also feature drop safes in the cabs for cash handling. Imperial Logistics has added further value for Nulaid by leveraging the group’s technology solutions business,
Resolve Solution Partners. “An important contributor to Nulaid’s distribution success is our partnership with
Resolve on this contract. Technology solutions delivered by Resolve have ensured optimal distribution planning, with the analytics and reports driving continuous improvements like enhanced vehicle utilisation and a fleet reduction initiative. These have yielded cost savings and enhanced efficiency and customer service,”
