Sherwood International has an extensive footprint in Africa with operations for over 40 years in most African countries. We can provide you with services from basic administration of one or two supply chain functions to managing your total supply chain. Sherwood will provide the People, Processes, Technology and Knowledge across all the functions of the supply chain.

Since we commenced operations in 1976, Sherwood International has assisted a number of Mining companies to expand their operations in Africa. This has enabled them to get up and running quickly by outsourcing the backroom processes to a skilled specialist with unique knowledge of African operational challenges. Sherwood handles aspects as diverse as securing and negotiating consumables and engineering supplies, dealing with discounts and bulk supply problems, as well as supplier management issues, staffing issues, warehouse management, stock control headaches and on-time deliveries.

At Sherwood International, we implement best operating practices in warehouse management (receiving, assurance, binning, issuing, housekeeping and stock counting) to ensure you know exactly what items you have on hand. We can manage your physical inventory holding with detailed replenishment programs to ensure optimum stock levels and stock availability to meet your requirements.
