Perspex South Africa partners with Tigers


Perspex South Africa has joined forces with Tigers SA to provide customers with enhanced service delivery.

The Perspex SA Gauteng, South Africa branch has agreed to partner with the logistics and transportation company for all its warehousing and distribution needs.

Perspex South Africa provides cast acrylic products, as well as extruded acrylics, styrenics, polycarbonate, aluminium composite sheeting, polypropylene, polyethylene, and extruded polyurethane products.

Through this newly formed partnership the company is set to improve its service offering, and in doing so aims to enhance its reputation as a world class supplier.

Perspex South Africa managing director (MD), Stuart Hughes says: “We wanted to team up with a partner in the truest sense of the word. Our business needed to be critical to our partner just as their service is critical to us.”

This decision will not only give Perspex SA access to Tigers’ state-of-the-art systems and global infrastructure, but will also enable the global logistics company to extend its reach in South Africa.

From forwarding and clearing to distribution and warehousing, Tigers will be providing end-to-end solutions. Thanks to a larger warehouse and extra vehicles, Perspex SA will be able to ensure quicker turnaround times on picking and packing, and improved delivery times.

The partnership will lay the groundwork to make online purchasing a reality for Perspex SA clients in the immediate future.

This platform will allow Perspex SA’s clients to check stock, order and receive delivery time confirmation instantaneously – either from their mobile devices or from the comfort of their office.

Tigers South Africa MD, Paul Lawrence says: “Our state-of-the-art SmartHub Connect portal provides full integration with Perspex South Africa’s order management systems, complete with a client facing layer, that offers data visibility and order management.

“This will allow Perspex South Africa to provide clients with timely and accurate delivery information, and improved delivery times.”

The new business collaboration saw Perspex SA’s Gauteng branch move into new office space, as well as a 4,600 square metre Tigers warehouse in a secure business estate in Isando, Johannesburg, South Africa.
