RS South Africa assists mining industry to consolidate its fragmented supplier base

Johannesburg, South Africa, 19 June 2023 – The mining industry in South Africa is a major growth area for RS South Africa, a global omni-channel provider of industrial and electronic products and solutions, according to Sales Director, Erick Wessels. The main challenge confronting the mining industry from a logistics perspective is that it tends to have a fragmented supplier base. The remote nature of many mines in South Africa often means it is not logistically possible or feasible to keep a comprehensive spares stockholding on-site. Instead, the trend is to deal with suppliers who can bring parts to site quickly and efficiently.
