GOING BEYOND to bring more to the Nando’s table

Blog,Our Stories - October 1, 2018

Vector’s relationship with Nando’s is set to continue! Being reappointed as Nando’s chosen supply chain and distribution partner means that we will be focusing on delivering even more smoking-hot supply chain solutions for South Africa’s iconic food service chain.

As a specialist multi-temperature third-party logistics service provider (3PL), we are contracted to deliver an end-to-end supply chain solution for Nando’s that includes the use of returnable packaging. As part of this, we will be responsible for demand and supply planning across the network using our advanced software systems and full Sales & Operating Planning (S&OP) process – with a strong focus on collaborative demand planning along with electronic data interchange (EDI) and business-to-business (B2B) integration.

“Vector has a strong focus on efficiencies and continuous improvement. It is this philosophy that has positioned us as a committed partner rather than a typical service provider,” says Managing Director, Chris Creed.

“Our cutting-edge warehouse facilities, together with our truck IP which limits temperature deviations in transit, proves that our infrastructure is more than capable to meet Nando’s supply chain requirements.”

In addition to our IT systems (including the well-established use of the SAP enterprise resource planning system), we have four state-of-the-art distribution hubs in strategic locations across the country: Cape Town, Durban, Midrand and Port Elizabeth.
