Bridgewater Logistics continues to demonstrate its leadership in transport and logistics, as well as warehousing and distribution.
Quinton de Villiers, managing director of Bridgewater Logistics, says that the company is well-known for the depth and extent of its offering in these specialist fields, and this has been a significant differentiator in a market that has become increasingly competitive.
“Bridgewater Logistics’ solutions are based upon decades of experience and extensive combined in-house skills and capabilities. Moreover, we have an intricate understanding of transport networks and resources. This has allowed Bridgewater Logistics to position itself as a single point of contact for a complete logistics solution for a growing client base,” De Villiers says.
Bridgewater Logistics’ transport and logistics offering throughout the Southern African Development Community encompasses the provision of drawing agents at airports; on-line vehicle tracking with SMS notification; and direct drives.
He says that these are complemented by other services, such as dedicated loads, instant POD by e-mail, prompt pick-ups, fleet management and white-glove services.
More recently, the company launched its line-haul operations to further reinforce its competitive edge in the market.
In addition to providing state-of-the-art undercover facilities, Bridgewater Logistics’ warehousing and distribution service includes forklift, as well as hand packs, or unpacks; warehouse management; and inventory control and reporting. Complementing these are bulk warehousing; pallet storage and control; container packing, or unpacking; high-volume cages; and receiving and dispatching of goods.
De Villiers says that another competitive edge for Bridgewater Logistics is the fact that discerning manufacturers have preferred to only deal with an expert in the field.
“Our clients know that they are dealing with a company that places immense credence upon ‘people, partnerships and performance’. With transport and logistics making up such a significant component of any business, they are unwilling to take unnecessary risk by dealing with ‘fly-by-night’ operators. They engage experts that have struck a balance between quality and price!” he concludes.
