Digistics is strategically placed in the Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) industry and provides an array of key service delivery options to all its customers. The QSR sector has seen massive growth over the last few years and is continually expected to change its business to take on more responsibility in the supply chain.

The origins of Digistics can be traced back to the Anderson Dubose Company, a Quick Service Restaurant Distribution Operation in the United States. In 1995 it set up a partnership in South Africa, ASP Distributors Pty Ltd. which had an exclusive commercial procurement and distribution agreement with McDonalds South Africa. The warehouse in the Distribution Campus at Waterfall mainly focus on Mc Donalds.

The company, in partnership with SPAR, started operations out of the SPAR East Rand Distribution Centre but moved to its own premises in City Deep in November 1996. The Cape Town Distribution Centre opened in November 1997. A national infrastructure positioned ASP as a pioneer in national multi-temperature distribution within the food service sector in South Africa.

In 2003 a management buy-out of ASP Distributors South Africa took place, hence the establishment of Digital Logistics (Pty) Ltd. With an aggressive growth plan, the company pursued new opportunities and secured a contract with KFC in December 2003. This was the first phase of a significant growth period which took the company from 40 to over 400 employees in 3 years.

Digistics now operates out of seven distribution centres in Johannesburg, Cape Town Port Elizabeth and Durban and has become a significant player in leading multi-temperature distribution operations in SA.
