What Our Customers Have to Say

“Simba, part of the Pepsico Group, are South Africas premier supplier of crisps. Simba found themselves in a situation where they had limited control over vehicles, the potential to add routes as a result of increased sales and therefore an increase in capital expenditure – so they chose LogiX!! Ernest Smith, National Sales Productivity Manager, said: “During our recent peak season we didn't have to hire any additional vehicles to cope with the increased loads. An indication of proper route engineering. Our return on investment has been an overwhelming 700% over a very short period. Most other software packages would only provide us with scheduling functionality whereas the solution provided by DPS and the local representative addressed our particular needs.””


“Callie Herbst, Logistics Manager, Agrinet says: "It is definitely a time and money saving system – our vehicles spend less hours a day travelling therefore doing fewer kilometres than before, which directly impacts our bottom line by dramatically saving on fuel costs."”


“Johan Grobler, Contract Manager for Unitrans Freight and Logistics says: "LogiX is useful for our daily scheduling of multidrop deliveries, which we make using about 30 trucks at a time. It is especially beneficial to us and our customer as it and offers both efficient vehicle and load capacity utilisation. For us the system is tremendously quick, efficient and cost effective. Since moving over to this system our customer has reacted extremely positively. In addition we maintain high customer service levels and in turn they also enjoy increased efficiencies." PlanLogiX assists at Unitrans Johannesburg Cross Dock As a result of implementing PlanLogiX in an operational environment for dailing scheduling at their Johannesburg Cross Dock operation, Unitrans can definitely see improvements across their business. The system has given Unitrans a clearer picture of how many vehicles to bring into the scheduling picture, according to Unitrans' manager Trevor Lai-Foy. In addition to finding the shortest route PlanLogiX shedules different products onto available vehicles to ensure all orders scheduled are delivered within a specific time frame.”


“Fred Theart, Contract Supervisor for Tydstroom Durbanville says: "The LogiX system is extremely helpful to Unitrans customers on a daily basis. In fact, the Unitrans credo of striving to be the most innovative provider of supply chain solutions in partnership with their customers is underscored by the use of the system. It allows us to print out trip sheets that we hand to our drivers so that they follow the process that our customers prefer."”
