With a history that spans over 35 years, Tarsus Distribution is the oldest technology distribution company in South Africa. Our industry-leading supply chain solutions, combined with a world-class warehouse management system, gives resellers the ability to rely on optimised logistics that reliably and efficiently serve their clients.
Many of our clients have moved to our environment simply because it saves them on warehouse fixed costs such as staff, forklifts, security, etc. They also save on the costs involved in implementing international best practices to stay relevant in the market. While some distributors appear to offer a good, affordable solution, it is rarely the case that they have invested in their supply chain to make it a best of breed solution to the same degree that Tarsus has. Tapping into our existing infrastructure gives resellers the peace of mind they need to rest assured that the service they offer the client will remain the best when looking to save money.
When it comes to staying on top of inventory, we have got you covered. The ‘bin’ level accuracy, which is a measurement of the location, the product in the location and the quantity in that location is consistent at 99.7% across 30 000 bin locations within our 26 000 sqm warehouse. In short: we know where our products are. With daily, weekly and bi-annual stock takes ranging from cycle counts to wall-to-wall inventory check-ins, we routinely produce excellent metrics with virtually no shrinkage.
The team in charge of our shipping department has been with Tarsus for thirty years, giving them in-depth knowledge and unmatched expertise in the industry. They process around 4000 outbound shipments monthly from 25 freight forwarders and over 30 vendors. We also ship 60 000 orders a month in 100 000 boxes/parcels with around 500 000 individual items inside of those boxes.
We currently ship export shipments into the following African countries daily:
Over the past few years, we have focused on partnering with the best possible freight forwarders in each country that we operate in. With logistics in each African country having its own complexities and nuances, we have ensured that we have an optimised group of freight service providers for each region. The tracking and document signing process has also been completely digitised, thereby helping us serve our clients faster.
At Tarsus, our governance and compliance team stays on top of all governmental regulations in the countries that we operate in. Any changes to using or moving technology will be picked up by us to ensure our clients have a smooth compliance journey. Contact us for more information about our supply chain solutions today.
