Freight looting a growing concern The escalating voracity of freight looting off the back of fleet vehicles, sometimes while moving – was highlighted in a recent Carte Blanche insert and has massive financial repercussions for the fleet and insurance industries. ACCORDING TO NOAH APPALSAMY of insurance brokers and risk advisors, Aon South Africa, the number of reported incidents is expected to increase. “The losses incurred from looting directly affect the bottom-line of the entire retail industry, and ultimately will impact on the

AON OFFERS THE FOLLOWING RISK MANAGEMENT TIPS FOR FLEET OWNERS: • Identify and avoid travelling through high risk areas by using alternative routes where possible. Speak to your insurance broker or insurer as they will have claims data to identify problematic hotspots. • Keep information about the type of goods being transported on a ‘need to know’ basis as far as possible. • Use unbranded distribution vehicles, as branded fleet vehicles often give an indication of the type of load that’s being hauled. • Equip your drivers with knowledge and training of how to respond if caught up in a looting situation ensure they are in constant contact and monitored for swift response to an emergency situation. • Use closed containers or install diamond wire mesh on tarpaulins to prevent easy slashing – Looters can typically only cut a certain amount before the knife gets stuck

which makes it more difficult, buying the driver some precious time.  • Make sure that each load is correctly insured and that all parties involved are clear on where the liability lies as far as cargo is concerned, whether it be the supplier, haulier or the owner.    • Use armed guards / security to accompany high-value cargo in a convoy. • In some instances of looting, actual fleet vehicles are also damaged due to slashed tyres, broken containers or even accidents that may occur during an in-transit looting incident.  Make sure that your commercial vehicle cover is up to scratch and consider business interruption insurance to ensure that your business can survive a worst case scenario.  • Speak to your broker or insurer to confirm whether there are any restrictions on your policy or exclusions on specific routes that are being utilised.

ON THE MOVE MOTOR FOCUS MANY SOUTH AFRICANS who drive and own Isuzu pick-ups and fleets of Isuzu trucks today, do exactly what they saw the generation before them did: build a lifelong relationship with the brand. A solid combination of local engineering and customer-centric aftersales support, ensures that the Isuzu brand remains intrinsic to the South African customer’s lived experiences. The brand philosophy, ‘With you for the long run’, has been established through decades of dedicated service to Isuzu customers - who have formed a partnership with the brand, making the products almost as entrenched into the South African lifestyle as boerewors on a braai. GROWING STRONGER TOGETHER AS A SINGLE BRAND OPERATION While the ownership model has recently changed,

Isuzu’s commitment is stronger than ever to deliver customer satisfaction in both the South African local pick-up and truck markets. Last year (2017) Isuzu Motors announced an investment into South Africa by purchasing the Struandale plant in Port Elizabeth, as well as the remaining 30% shareholding in the Isuzu Truck South Africa joint venture. The manufacturing operations in South Africa now builds Isuzu pick-ups and trucks, consolidated into one business known as Isuzu Motors South Africa, which became effective from January this year (2018). Isuzu Motors South Africa is a wholly owned subsidiary of Isuzu’s first 100%-owned manufacturing and distribution organisation outside of Japan. It serves as an important base for Isuzu’s long-term growth throughout Africa.

LOCAL PRODUCTION AND ENGINEERING GROWS LEADERS OF THE PACK Globally, Isuzu vehicles are sold in over 100 countries, and 120 markets, and Isuzu has established itself as a pioneer in technological innovations of diesel engines. This innovation and international best practices have been transferred to the Port Elizabeth operations of both the truck and pick-up production facilities. Extensive local testing makes the technologically advanced Isuzu vehicles resilient and conditioned to the South African roads and climate. Adhering to the highest quality and safety standards, the Isuzu brand continues to innovate with the Isuzu KB in its six generation of production. Back in 2009, the first hybrid truck was tested in South Africa. Isuzu was also the first to introduce double cab pick-ups into the South African market.

Whether it’s an Isuzu KB hauling sheep in the Karoo, or an Isuzu refrigerated truck transporting fast moving goods from Cape Town to Johannesburg, the Isuzu brand has been synonymous with the South African way of life for more than five decades.

Why buy an Isuzu? FEBRUARY 2018 DIY & INDUSTRIAL TRADE NEWS


ON THE MOVE MOTOR FOCUS In 2013, Isuzu launched an interactive imaging system, Isuzu Trail View, the first of its kind in South Africa, to map 4x4 trails using a 360-degree camera based on Google street view technology. Other than its innovative nature – combined with top class local engineering – what else has resulted in Isuzu Trucks being market leader in medium and heavy trucks for 5 years in a row from 2013 to 2017? What else has caused Isuzu KB sales volumes to increase by more than 14% and more than doubled in the Sub-Saharan Africa markets in 2017? The answer is pretty simple: years and years of practice. A century of practice to be exact. LEGENDS BORN INTO RICH MOTORING HERITAGE Isuzu Motors was founded in 1916 and has the longest history of any Japanese vehicle

manufacturer. It has been in existence for more than a century. Isuzu has had a presence in South Africa since 1964, when the first commercial vehicles entered the market. The brand’s popularity grew and resulted in the first Isuzu 1-ton pick-ups sold in the country in 1972. A legend was born in 1978 when the first Isuzu KB rolled off the production line in Port Elizabeth. Now in its sixth generation of production (with 23 models across South Africa), close to 600 000 Isuzu KBs had since been built. Meanwhile, almost 40 000 Isuzu trucks have also been manufactured in South Africa. The rich and established past of the Isuzu brand means that a partnership with Isuzu is for life: its products – whether trucks or bakkies - offer value for the

customer for the duration of ownership. The relationship with Isuzu does not end the day the vehicle is driven off the sales floor – in fact, this is where the journey really begins. Whether it’s a bakkie for leisure use, or a workhorse to maximise company profits – what these products will always have in common is consistent quality and reliability. ISUZU OWNERS ARE ENSURED OF: • Excellent service and warrantee options; • 24-hour roadside assistance; • extensive dealer network. While many things have changed in South Africa since the introduction of the Isuzu brand half a century ago, one thing remains the same: You buy an Isuzu for life.

OPINION RETAIL

Don't be slow to digitise your physical store Lindy-Lee, head of retail, T-Systems South Africa asks what’s holding South African retail from achieving the omni-channel vision?

M

any South African retailers remain steadfast in their traditional business models, characterised by high-touch, ‘bricks-and-mortar’ engagements, as they try to create the best possible in-store experiences. Truly omni-channel strategies in South Africa have yet to take off in the same way as they have in the United States and other developed markets. A number of local retailers believe that mass adoption for digital and mobile retail offerings is still some way from becoming mainstream. Saying this, there are some that have successfully

5265B Eureka FortKnox 4 x 1/4pg Padlocks DIYTN DEC’17

FEBRUARY 2018 DIY & INDUSTRIAL TRADE NEWS

implemented omni channel initiatives and are reaping the benefits. However, embracing omni-channel as a core business model can be complex, expensive, and even risks jeopardising one’s core in-store revenue streams. The so-called proliferation of channels, touchpoints, devices and digital identities throws up a myriad of concerns around back-end systems, data management platforms, marketing tools and more. For most retailers, the concept of omnichannel remains an enigma. MISSED OPPORTUNITIES  The risk is that these retailers may

Many South African retailers have been slow to digitally transform and embrace omni-channel business models.

be missing out on the massive opportunities presented by the digital revolution. Buzzwords aside, we are now living in an era that could be defined as ‘the Internet of me’ – where the consumer has unprecedented power and control over the purchasing journey. We’re able to shop online, on mobile, or in stores. We can ‘click and collect’, or arrange for home deliveries (even drone deliveries in some countries). In some cases, we can even enter virtual and augmented reality realms, to see just how that item of clothing might look on us, or how that couch would look in our lounges, before purchasing (IKEA in Europe is a great example of a retailer pushing the boundaries by blurring these ‘realities’). We can instantly call up peer reviews, perform real-time price comparisons, or buy goods with just a tap of our screens or a click of our mouse on our favourite social media platform. Connected devices on washing machines allow us to re-order our regular detergent with just a press of a button. As consumers, we’ve never had so much power. And while some of these trends may not have reached South African shores, we can be sure that they will do at some stage. UNDERSTANDING THE REASONS When it comes to innovation in retail, South Africa is not alone in its slow pace of transformation. At a global level, a recent CapGemini survey* revealed that, “More than half (54%) of the retail executives surveyed admit they have been slow to digitise their physical stores.”   SO JUST WHAT IS HOLDING BACK MANY OF OUR LOCAL RETAILERS? Back-end IT systems With retail typically being a lowmargin industry, costs are very tightly managed. IT budgets remain highly constrained, inhibiting CIOs from building the modern digital platforms and new user interfaces that make omni-channel a reality.

Lack of data strategy It’s critical for retailers to have a structured approach to gathering, securing, analysing and monetising their data. It’s only by establishing and then executing on a strong data strategy that a retailer can achieve the vision of ‘intimacy at scale’ Not considering the entire journey Today, the purchasing and buying journey has become splintered across multiple touchpoints. For each of the key stages in the buying lifecycle – awareness, choice, transaction, delivery and finally after-sales – consumers are using various channels. It’s only by understanding this holistically that retailers can hope to craft an omni-channel strategy. Not placing CX at the top of everyone’s priorities Retailers have traditionally been focused on generating efficiencies in value chains and logistical processes, delivering products to people in the lowest-cost manner. From what we have seen from the millennial generation entering the economy, people are willing to pay slightly more in return for excellent service and personalised engagements. It is only by putting customer experience at the very top of the boardroom agenda (and in fact at the top of everyone’s agenda) that retailers can stand out from the pack to create differentiation and competitive advantage. eCommerce player Magento says that its research** indicates that, “Retailers and wholesalers were more likely to report a slower pace of digitisation than other industries.” The business case for omni-channel may be difficult to prove, particularly in the short-term, but the long-term effects of neglecting digital may be disastrous for local retailers. My advice is look towards the local retailers that have successfully embraced omni channel and lean into the trend. *https://www.capgemini.com/consulting/ news/future-of-physical-retail-stores/ **https://magento.com/blog/magentonews/retail-spotlight-role-digitisationgrowth-middle-market-companies

PROUDLY SOUTH AFRICAN COMPANY GEDORE TOOLS SA

Gedore – forging ahead

A Gedore Tools has been a quality local tool manufacturer for half a century, creating jobs, innovating and delivering quality hand tools to the local and global market. ONE OF SOUTH AFRICA’S iconic hand tool manufacturers, Gedore has been at the forefront of the local market of tool forging and innovation for over 50 years. The Gedore Group was founded in 1919 by three brothers who started manufacturing hand tools from their family home in Remscheid, Germany. From this small homestead the company has grown into a multinational organisation. Gedore Tools South Africa was established in New Germany, KwaZulu-Natal in 1965. When the company decided to expand their footprint in to Africa they took advantage of the 60s industrial boom taking place in South Africa as well as the onset of vehicle assembly plants which were built to provide components for the local industry. The introduction of hot forged, German engineered hand tools into the South African market would revolutionise the industry from small businesses to large enterprises. In the early days of production all forgings were imported from Germany and machined and plated locally. However, the introduction of drop forging hammers enabled Gedore South Africa to increase production and the range with the use of locally procured steel. Today, Gedore is the leading supplier of hand tools to the South African industrial sector while also distributing to markets in Africa, Europe, Australia and Brazil. Recently, Gedore South Africa was chosen by Gedore Germany as the preferred supplier of spanners for the entire group. This has necessitated a massive investment in the factory with the entire forging line undergoing a complete revamp. Once completed the plant will be able to run 24/7 and accommodate three shifts per day, which will more than double the current production. This is a wonderful achievement for Gedore SA – the global recognition is a huge accolade to the factory and is great boost for local manufacturing. What makes Gedore still relevant to product retailers and consumers alike in such a competitive market is that Gedore is competing on price, service and quality while constantly reinventing itself to adapt quickly in the global market. Gedore continues to produce its products at the best possible price. It has optimised its distribution for effective and punctual delivery. Its secondary brand, Carolus, also carries the ‘by Gedore’ line on its logo reassuring customers that the brand is underwritten by the quality and service associated with Gedore. The Gedore warranty policy is testament to the quality of product. Every Gedore tool is covered by a lifetime guarantee against defective material and workmanship, provided that the tool has been used correctly for its intended purpose and allowances have been made for wear and tear. This guarantee will allow for repair or exchange of the tool. FEBRUARY 2018 DIY & INDUSTRIAL TRADE NEWS
