To support the demands of the growing online retail market, Tigers South Africa has opened a new e-commerce centre at its Johannesburg warehouse.
The centre – the first of its kind for the company in South Africa – is equipped with the Tigers-developed ScanPak App that allows staff to conduct scan checks while packing shipments and create waybills for packages to ensure efficient handling of goods.
“With the ongoing e-commerce revolution and digital technology transforming the way consumers shop, we find ourselves in a very good strategic position to further enhance and grow this vertical for Tigers,” said Paul Lawrence, managing director, Tigers South Africa.
“As with most Tigers solutions, ScanPak is replicable, and we will roll out the same solution in Cape Town by the end of August.”
“E-commerce is a key market for Tigers, particularly as digital technology and online retail continues to drive innovation in the logistics and supply chain sector,” said Andrew Jillings, chief executive, Tigers.
The e-commerce centre coincides with Tigers’ recent announcement that it is rolling out freight rate quote engine Doozee across its entire global internal network.
