Recent Gauteng Business News

Imperial Logistics International subsidiary, Panopa has expanded its Eastern European operations, establishing Panopa Logistik Magyar Kft in Kecskemét, Hungary after being awarded the empties management contract by a blue chip global automobile manufacturer. Volumes are estimated to exceed 1.5 million containers annually.

Panopa’s automotive logistics solutions are used by vehicle manufacturers in Germany, England, France, Poland, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and South Africa. This contract sees the manufacturer’s first vehicles of a successor generation scheduled to roll off the line in 2012.

RĂ©my Hoeffler, CEO of Panopa Logistik Polska explained, “Through this contract, Panopa is responsible to centrally collect, clean, bundle and sort the returnable containers in which material is supplied directly to the line before they are provided to the suppliers again. By means of a barcode, the empties can be identified and traced along the supply chain.”

“Panopa has a trusted reputation in specialist logistics and supply chain management within the automotive steel, machinery production, plant engineering and transport management sectors,” said Abrie de Swardt, Imperial Logistics Marketing Director, noting that Imperial Logistics International has proven its resilience during the economic downturn in which Europe, one of its primary markets, was particularly hard hit.

KecskemĂ©t will not remain the only location for Panopa’s Hungarian expansion focus. The company has opened an office in Györ, 130 kilometres west of Budapest, where Audi produces engines as well as assembles the TT and the A3 convertible. “We see Hungary as a major growth market,” concluded Hoeffler.
