Imperial partnership boosts NCP’s bottom line

[Johannesburg, 4 July 2014] - NCP Alcohol has outsourced its supply chain management and road transport requirements to Imperial Logistics. Reduced transport costs and a boost to the business's bottom line are among the benefits being reaped by the fermentation alcohol producer as a result of this partnership, says Imperial Logistics chief business development officer Cobus Rossouw.

Outlining the history of the group's relationship with NCP Alcohol, he reveals that Imperial group company Tanker Services began working with the organisation more than 25 years ago. "During this time, Tanker Services entered into various contracts with NCP, eventually purchasing NCP Alcohol's fleet of tankers and trucks and taking over the bulk movement of its products."

The Imperial relationship was expanded when group company Resolve was contracted to assist NCP Alcohols in analysing its entire supply chain and business process. Rossouw notes that this undertaking was highly detailed and all-encompassing, covering all aspects of NCP's supply chain. "The culmination of this project included, among other things, a tender process for all logistics services to be outsourced. Tanker Services was successful in retaining the liquid bulk business, with the award of a three-year contract that will see the company transporting more than 45 million litres of fermentation alcohol for NCP per year."
