To maintain of a well-defined and market driven product range
Agrinet's range of more than 18 000 line items is sourced locally and abroad. The balance between diversity, acceptable quality and price is important.

Realizing optimum stock and service levels from warehousing these products
With availability figures constantly in excess of 90%, Agrinet contributes to reduced safety stock levels in the retail store. This results in lower inventory levels and higher profitability.

To be able to receive and process thousands of orders per day with maximum speed and efficiency
80% of sales business and 50% of buying are done electronically with advanced internet presence. This means fast and accurate flow of information at a fraction of the cost.

Providing an effective and reliable network of distribution to all towns and cities in South Africa as well as to customers in neighbouring countries
Agrinet operates from its head office in Samrand, Gauteng with warehouses in Samrand and in Bellville in the Western Cape. Scheduled deliveries on the company's own fleet of trucks are done on a daily or weekly basis to almost every town and city in the country.

To play a leading role in optimizing the flow of business and information in the chain of supply between the manufacturer and the retailer
Promoting an integrated approach between role players in the supply chain is a strategic priority. This will lead to reduced stock levels, lowering of costs and increased sales for all participants.
