What our customers have to say about City Logistics’ Retail Distribution Service:
Retailability first approached City Logistics in 2016, when as a retail business we had hit 100 stores. We were looking for a partner that understood our needs as an entrepreneurial corporation; ease of implementation, maximum value and good service were key. We were entering a growth phase in our organisation and needed a logistics partner with reach through Southern Africa and an ability to help us scale up our distribution capabilities as we grew.
Today we operate over 580 stores across 4 retail formats in 5 countries, and we continue to get the same levels of operational efficiency and support that we got from day one.
City Logistics remains as a key supply chain partner to us tomorrow as they did 6 years ago!
