Eazi Access is excited to announce that we will be exhibiting at this year’s SAPICS Conference & Exhibition which will be taking place at Century City Conference Centre in Cape Town from the 9th – 12th of June 2024. The theme for the 46th Annual Conference is Supply Chain Metamorphosis, and this is relevant in these times as we see Supply Chains evolving to new markets and new technologies becoming available in the market.

Eazi Access has been a long-standing corporate member with the professional body for Supply Chain Management and is proud to be associated with SAPICS which has worked to elevate, educate, and empower the community of supply chain professionals in South Africa and across the continent for the past 46 years.

The conference will see hundreds of delegates and exhibitors from around the world gather to network, learn, and share knowledge through panel discussions, presentations, exhibitions, workshops, and case studies presented by local and international experts and industry leaders with the purpose of advancing world class supply chain practices in South Africa.

According to Tralone Lindiwe Khoza, PR & Communication Specialist at Eazi Access, “We are excited to announce that Karl Thorington, Eazi Access Chief Business Development Officer will be speaking at the SAPICS 2024 conference. Karl comes with a wealth of knowledge and expertise, which he will be sharing at the conference. He has over thirty years operational and strategic experience in Logistics, Manufacturing and Supply Chain from blue chip and renowned US multinational companies. In his senior leadership role, he has looked after end-to-end supply chain design and solutions in the FMCG beverage, pharmaceutical, personal care and cosmetics industry and cold chain frozen foods, with his previous role in Eazi Access being the Chief Operations Officer.”

According to Karl Thorington, Eazi Access Chief Business Development Officer, “I have attended the SAPICS conference over a period spanning nearly twenty years and have watched it evolve in content and format, from the early days where the primary exhibitors ranged from truck rental companies, warehouse design solutions companies, material handling equipment rental and sales and consultant services to technological enhancements that are data driven to improve productivity, efficiencies and enhance the customer experience while understanding their operational effectiveness.”


Thorington explained that customers have become more savvy through different digital platforms such as LinkedIn and other numerous technological sites which provides insight for their businesses, however there is also a great opportunity to show them how they can improve and enhance their operations and in tandem benefit their customers.

“The race is on to demonstrate and deliver on promises that have historically been pitched by consultants to now being pitched by regular rental and service provider companies,” reiterated Thorington.

Thorington’s views on what customers can expect from Eazi Access at this year’s SAPICS event includes, “Customers expect greater uptime, lower running costs, greater reliability through service and maintenance from the solutions they procure, so that they can focus on their core businesses. They want proof that you have delivered on what you have promised you would do, or you risk losing the contract. Our innovation in product investment and solutions aims to deliver on this.”

As a Work-At-Height and Material Handling Solutions partner of choice, Eazi Access has been ranked number 1 in Africa for Access Platform and Material Handling rental, sales, and service. Eazi Access provides a variety of innovative safe solutions which cater for the supply chain industry, which will be showcased at the conference. In 2019, Eazi Access walked away with the Best Multiple Exhibition Stand at the SAPICS Annual Conference.

In many ways Eazi Access over the past 21 years has emulated the same journey as SAPICS, it has evolved from a rental company to a sales company, to sales and service and now to a solutions company, across various industries.

“We have moved from providing simple rental options to complex solutions by understanding the customers problems and working with them to solve them through our industry expertise in a safe, effective and productive manner. We deliver on what we say we will do and through strategic alliances with global companies like DP World, we now have the means to extend our technology into our trucking and transport solutions, including field service vehicles, to delight our customers. Like SAPICS, over the years, we too have evolved to meet our ever-changing customer needs because if we stand still, we go backwards”, explained Thorington.

We look forward to networking and exchanging knowledge with delegates across the supply chain sector at this prestigious event.
