Hinterland as a business has undergone various internal optimisation processes during the past financial year. One of the exciting initiatives within the business is unlocking the values and synergies of an integrated supply chain strategy and process for the Hinterland retail and wholesale business.
To facilitate the establishment of an integrated supply chain process, the shareholders have decided to merge the Hinterland and Prodist companies on 1 December 2018. This is a very important step for both companies and will unlock potential at various levels. The merged business will operate as a new legal entity known as Hinterland SA (Pty) Ltd.
The integrated approach to supply management will offer new and exciting possibilities, including a unified product strategy supported by improved planning and order quantity decisions, more control over stock movement, opportunities for improved margins and availability, as well as access to a broader range of products. – Press release
