Corporate strategy in South Africa traditionally focused on turnover management because of a tough economy. However, the focus has shifted to the cost side. Because of this emphasis on higher cost efficiency, logistics became a vital part of corporate strategy. Looking at a barometer for logistics excellence, it can be seen that logistics in South Africa is still functionally fragmented with a relatively low level of co‐operation in the value chain. Improving this is vital as logistics will be important for future competitiveness.
