Demand-forecasting methodologies are outdated. Cutting-edge technology and specialised logistics expertise have become the key to unlocking new possibilities. Backed by South Africa’s best suite of logistics IT systems and solutions, Cargo Carriers offers innovative Supply Chain Management consulting and implementation services to clients across the country, and throughout sub-Saharan Africa.
Our supply chain solutions are anchored in our state-of-the-art Symphony software platform, enabling clients to eliminate costly bottlenecks, boost sales, optimise procurement spend and reduce inventory.
The cornerstone of our long-term business strategy is our Supply Chain Solutions division, dedicated to creating sustainable value through innovation.
The division offers a cost-effective trading business, consulting services and the supply and deployment of best-in-class logistics software and systems.
Based on the Theory of Constraints (TOC) philosophy, we have developed a methodology for companies to optimise and manage their supply chain – and particularly inventory buffer levels – that is simply more sophisticated and more successful than traditional demand-forecasting methodologies.
This approach is anchored in our Symphony software, to which we hold the exclusive license in Africa. Working through this cutting-edge technology, we are enable to improve our clients’ service and sales levels, at the same time as reducing inventory by up to 50% – even in volatile demand environments.
While we do sometimes work on a consultancy basis in this division, we prefer to implement and even run the supply chain solutions that we design. This approach allows us to take ultimate responsibility for the value we create over time.
At Cargo Carriers we believe it is possible to leverage your supply chain for substantial competitive advantage.
Drawing on our industry-leading expertise, and South Africa’s best suite of logistics IT systems and solutions, we offer supply chain consulting and system implementation services to clients across sub-Saharan Africa, saving scores of clients money and optimising their logistics operations.
