| Ivana | Partner Content

Since its founding in 1999, Vital Distribution Solutions has solidified its reputation as a reliable supplier of comprehensive logistics services to each of the major industry sectors in Southern Africa.

Vital Distribution Solutions is far from being just another transport company among many, with a fleet of over 600 vehicles ranging from 1 Ton “Bakkies” to Super-link trailer combinations. Vital offers a national service in South Africa, with daily deliveries between main centres, such as Cape Town, Durban, and Johannesburg. Vital Distribution Solutions has worked to build partnerships with its clientele that are based on integrity ever since it was founded. The hands-on management team and dedicated staff, with top management constantly involved with the business and easily reachable, are keys to its success.

Vital takes the responsibility for a reduction in carbon emissions and switching to more sustainable transportation systems seriously. Vital set its environmental strategy in 2018 and updates this environmental strategy annually measuring its performance against goals for a sustained reduction of carbon emissions.

Vital seeks to accomplish this by concentrating on important long-term strategies, addressing the full value chain, by utilising a variety of business intelligence tools.  This implies that the entire transportation life cycle is examined, through building close working relationships with the OEM, rigorous route planning and optimization, and exploring alternative means of green transport.

Vital Distribution Solutions has demonstrated its commitment to sustainable transport by investing in industry leading transport management software and establishing its 24/7 operational control tower.  This, together with ensuring continued focus on fuel-efficient vehicles, creates a targeted advantage in terms of daily measurements and ensures that every aspect of business operations is continuously controlled and enhanced.  In addition, Vital actively fosters a culture of mindfulness among staff members by promoting sustainable environmental development initiatives and holding monthly environmental awareness campaigns.

According to Minca Worsley, Compliance Officer of Vital Distribution Solutions the primary objective moving forward is to further reduce inefficiencies, optimizing available resources and offering clients an integrated, sustainable business approach that establishes environmental compliance as a non-negotiable and contributes to the reality of a greener tomorrow.
