Abstract: Logistics and supply chain management play a big role in any economy and are a critical contributor to the competitiveness of a country. The demand for products can only be satisfied through the proper and cost-effective delivery of goods and services. South Africa’s main economic activity is located in Gauteng and this has a serious effect on logistics costs. In addition, most of the freight in the country is transported by road. Furthermore, for South Africa to grow its market share of various products in the global market, the supply chains need to be world class to ensure effective delivery of goods. These and other aspects of the logistics environment in South Africa will be presented and major issues affecting logistics costs will be discussed. In addition, reference is made to the recent World Bank report on logistics competitiveness, and comparisons are made with Brazil and the USA on logistics performance.
