New distribution centre streamlines supply chain

BABCOCK Africa has established a new national parts distribution centre to enhance efficiency of its supply chain process across all the company’s operations.

The streamlined central warehouse will stock spare parts and components for all of Babcock’s business units and will facilitate the swift dispatch of items to all its national and regional branches.

Babcock delivers engineering support services to the energy, process, mining and construction industries, and is the exclusive regional distributor for many leading international brands.

The wholesale distribution centre is located at what was previously Babcock’s construction equipment warehouse in Johannesburg, and is already in full operation under the experienced guidance of Hans Roos, Head of Supply Chain, Babcock Africa. He says that combining an integrated warehouse with a supply chain function is in line with the ‘one Babcock’ ethos that promotes collaboration within the group, and will enhance the business’s operational capabilities and potential.

The warehouse currently holds parts and supports the logistical requirements for DAF Trucks and Babcock’s full suite of construction equipment brands (Volvo Construction Equipment, Tadano, Sennebogen, SDLG and Winget). Plans are underway to incorporate Babcock’s other business units into the national parts distribution centre.
