Trina Solar has opened its first warehouse in the Republic of South Africa.
"This method has allowed us to provide support to customers who can wait for the shipment," says Ben Hill, Trina Solar Head of Europe and Africa.
"With a local warehouse and distribution centre, our country wide team will be able to provide faster deliveries to customers as we will now be able to have quantities readily available."
"We chose to locate the warehouse in Pretoria in order to solidify our partnership with a local logistics company that runs a fully integrated service organisation from port to supplier and that was well established in the country. In addition to the distribution centre in Pretoria we are able to leverage our suppliers satellite warehouse operations in Durban and Cape Town for direct deliveries in these areas or cross-dock to other African counties," explains Hill.
