Goldfields manages DC’s and dispatch bays for several Blue Chip clients using various Warehouse Management Systems (WMS). Warehousing, planning and dispatch at these warehouses are handled by experienced Goldfields personnel on behalf of the customer.

Goldfields has a presence at 15 operational sites across the country with warehousing strategically located in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town. We specialise in raw material warehousing, finished goods warehousing, distribution centres and local distribution. The collective warehousing space totals to just short of 145 000m2 which is made up in the following manner:

Goldfields Owned Warehouses:
  • Johannesburg 30 000m2
  • Durban 26 000m2
  • Cape Town 26 000m2

The remaining balance of 63 000m2 is made up of external Goldfields managed customer warehouses. In order to effectively manage the day to day operational requirements of these warehouses, Goldfields have 65 MHE’s (Forklifts and clamps) on site nationwide.

All Goldfields owned warehouses boast state of the art fire prevention systems at SABS Standards. This includes automated pump houses with more than 5 000 sprinklers overall at an average of 3 meters water dispersion per sprinkler.
