Astute businesses have found the perfect location from which to operate their distribution centres, or Smart Warehousing systems.
Located at No. 7 Sim Road, Pomona, Kempton Park, Bridgewater Logistics’ state-of-the-art facility features 9 000 square metres of warehousing floor space, numerous loading doors and ample space for trucks. These premises, as well as all incoming and outgoing vehicles are monitored on an ongoing basis from a modern and sophisticated control room, while further security measures include a new automated access-control system that has also improved efficiencies for customers entering and exiting the facility.
Quinton de Villiers, Bridgewater Logistics’ managing director, says the ongoing investment into this infrastructure, strategically located within close proximity to OR Tambo International Airport, is a pro-active response to the logistical needs of modern businesses.
“This service is a vital component of the intricate transport and logistics value-chain. We are known for our capabilities and expertise in the field, as well as the depth of our understanding of transport networks and resources. We will, therefore, always ensure that we are driving, or at the forefront of the latest trends and developments that provide our clients with a competitive edge,” De Villiers says.
Bridgewater Logistics’ warehousing services include forklift, as well as “hand packs”, or “unpacks”; warehousing management; inventory control and reporting; bulk warehousing; pallet storage and control; container packing, or unpacking; high-volume cages; plus the receiving and dispatching of goods.
By outsourcing their warehousing requirements to a seasoned service provider, Bridgewater Logistics’ clients have done away with lengthy leases and alleviated the need for reliable and experienced labour, while accessing specialised tools.
“Our key differentiator has always been the ability to provide a bespoke solution to suit the unique requirements of our diverse client base. It is a capability that is based upon decades of experience enshrined within the group that allows us to design and deliver a thorough solution that meets all global logistics, transportation and warehousing requirements,” he concludes.
