Sasol, the second largest industrial company in South Africa, is an energy business with substantial chemical interests. Sasol’s oil operations include the manufacturing, marketing and trading of liquid fuels produced at its Synfuels facility in Secunda, South Africa, and the NATREF refinery in Sasolburg which it owns jointly with Total South Africa. Sasol’s oil supply chain also includes its wholly owned retail gas station network and product storage depots across South Africa.

“We selected Wam’s supply chain solution to support a sweeping business process excellence program at Sasol Oil designed to yield superior customer responsiveness and enhance our competitiveness,” said Pieter Basson, Sasol Oil’s supply chain manager. “Picaso is the cornerstone of an integrated planning framework for demand planning, global supply planning and asset optimisation. We expect our efforts to improve refining margins, lower distribution costs, increase operating responsiveness and enhance our decision making capabilities.”

“We are very proud to have been entrusted by Sasol to support their program to establish world-class operations in all facets of their oil supply chain,” said Wam’s CEO, Jack Weiss. “We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with our colleagues at Sasol.” The project, which is centred in Johannesburg, is being supported by Wam’s South African partner Rifle-Shot Performance Holdings, a long established provider of operational intelligence consulting and software offerings.
