There are also few global logistics providers which have their origins in South Africa such as UTi (now acquired by DSV Global Transport and Logistics), Imperial Logistics
    • However with respect to BFSI sector which contributes less than 3 percent in the South African logistics market, only limited national and global service providers offer services such as courier distribution, secured and non-secured deliveries, etc.,
    • The most prominent national courier service providers catering to banking sectors include CCD, Mr. Delivery, RAM couriers, and global players such as DSV and Skynet

    Market Trends

    • DSV has invested in automated card sorters for serving the banking sector clients

    Engagement and Contract Models

    Industry can consolidate its shipments and engage with a single supplier for bank card distribution. This can help Industry to negotiate with supplier on volume discount and improved service levels.

    Multiple Supplier (Local/Regional Suppliers)

    • Buyers engage with multiple local/ regional suppliers for their bank card distribution

    • Geographical Reach: Better geographical coverage is possible when engaging with multiple players


    • Complicated supplier management:  When engaging with multiple players, it becomes tedious to coordinate and communicate. Since delegating responsibilities to multiple player is difficult , it may be a challenge in managing the supply base

    Pros and Cons of Engagement with Single Global Supplier


    • Quality of Service: Global service providers can offer better quality service as well as other value added service because of their sophisticated investment in resources
    • Scope for Negotiation: When engaging with single player with cumulative volume, better negotiation is possible hence discounted rates


    • Dependency Risk: When engaging with one single player, buyer eventually becomes dependant. Hence in case of any incapability of the supplier may lead to financial loss to the buyer and services disruption
    • Long Contract Duration: Global players generally offer better rates when contract duration is long. Buyers are forced to engage for long duration for better rates
