Tigers South Africa opens e-commerce centre to support growth
Aug 20, 2019: Tigers South Africa responds to the online retail market growth with the opening of a dedicated e-commerce centre at its Johannesburg warehouse facility.
The centre 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.
Paul Lawrence, managing director, Tigers South Africa said: “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.
“As with most Tigers solutions, ScanPak is replicable, and we will roll out the same solution in Cape Town by the end of August.”
The e-commerce centre is the first of its kind for Tigers in South Africa, and the move coincides with the recent announcement about freight rate quote engine Doozee being rolled-out across Tigers’ global internal network.
“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 officer, Tigers.
