Bridgewater Logistics’ clients have peace of mind knowing that their logistics needs have been outsourced to a team of skilled and experienced professionals while they focus on their core responsibilities.
“One of the key benefits of partnering a reputable third-party logistics (3PL) provider is access to specialist logistics skills and knowledge. Part of our role in the partnership is to ensure that we always stay abreast of the latest developments, including technology, to help our clients drive downs costs, increase market share and gain a competitive edge,” Quinton de Villiers, managing director of Bridgewater Logistics, says.
In addition to housing some of the country’s foremost logisticians and project managers, Bridgewater Logistics also shoulders the responsibility of recruiting and developing the operational skills needed to run efficient supply chains on behalf of its clients.
The success of the company’s warehousing operations can be directly attributed to the unrivalled performance of its strong teams, including management, supervisors and workers on the ground, at its various facilities.
Their productivity is constantly assessed and goals established on an individual basis to improve performance, in terms of speed and precision.
“Accuracy remains the most important warehousing skill to avoid mistakes that can be extremely costly to correct. Combined with speed and an ability to think on their feet – other critical traits – high levels of precision enable us to double-check work to ensure that we deliver an unrivalled quality of service to our clients,” De Villiers says.
Certainly, one of the challenges is recruiting people who are passionate about logistics and willing to work in a notoriously fast-paced and high-pressured environment, compounded by an acute skills shortage in the global logistics industry.
Bridgewater Logistics, therefore, places just as much focus on retaining its skills and knowledge to ensure uninterrupted high levels of service.
The company’s comprehensive transport and logistics solution also consists of cutting-edge cross-docking, as well as short-haul and long-haul transportation services.
