DSV has inaugurated DSV Park Gauteng—its new HQ located in Gauteng, South Africa.
With this centralised facility which is also said to be Africa’s largest integrated logistics centre, the global specialist will be able to provide more seamless service to customers which are an integral part of creating a strengthened and more efficient logistics network in South Africa.
The logistics centre consists of approximately 130,000 sq mt of buildings and covers supply chain solutions from first to last mile controlled and managed under one roof, by DSV.
It is situated near O R Tambo International Airport between Johannesburg and Pretoria and with easy access to the East and West Rand.
The new DSV logistics centre is officially being inaugurated at a virtual ceremony on Thursday September 23. Ceremony host and CEO of DSV Africa, Keith Pienaar said, “The inauguration of DSV Park Gauteng once again underlines DSV’s strong commitment to South Africa and our will to grow the business in the region. DSV Park Gauteng consolidates several smaller offices and warehouses around Johannesburg into one large, modern logistics centre.”
“The foundation of our values and culture is to promote an inclusive workforce and sustainable business practices. One consolidated facility will enhance collaboration and offer truly integrated supply chain solutions for our clients and customers.”
“With DSV Park Gauteng, DSV has developed a large-scale modern logistics centre which captures the essence of our consolidation strategy to create larger and more efficient facilities, enabling us to have many of our business units together under one single roof.”
“We have packed the new DSV facility with solutions such as an innovative sorter that can handle 13,000 packages every single hour. Throughout the whole building process, we have also utilised our global experience to construct buildings where sustainability and resource optimisation have been fundamental in all processes,” said Brian Almind Winther, EVP and Head of Group Property, DSV.
The investment in DSV Park Gauteng is testament to DSV’s commitment to South Africa and to continuing to strengthen the logistics infrastructure in the country to the benefit of DSV customers and the South African society.
