Our wholesale brand distributes pharmaceutical products and surgical equipment across South Africa to our Medirite counters, Medirite Plus pharmacies and third-party business-to-business customers.

Transpharm Pharmaceutical Wholesalers distributes pharmaceuticals and surgical equipment across South Africa. This Group brand operates from distribution centres in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg, dispensing to medical and veterinary practitioners across the country.

Brand Overview

Transpharm was established by a group of retail pharmacists in 1970 and was acquired by Shoprite Holdings in 2009. Transpharm distributes a wide range of pharmaceutical products and surgical equipment to pharmacies, hospitals, clinics, dispensing doctors and veterinary surgeons across South Africa. 

Managing professional relationships with over 700 suppliers – and with more than 30 000 pharmaceutical products listed – customers will find that Transpharm’s products are competitively priced and offer considerable returns.

As a wholesaler and distributor, Transpharm understands the importance of quick deliveries: the faster the turnaround time, the better. Therefore, fast deliveries are of the essence; from twice-daily routes in the metro areas of Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town, to next-day deliveries for outlying towns. 

All deliveries are free of charge and no minimum order quantity is required.

How we are adding value:

Transpharm’s unique selling proposition is its ability to deliver

  • between 2 000 and 3 000 unique deliveries daily, sometimes twice daily, to many locations;
  • fine-picking warehouse expertise and efficient route optimisation; and
  • a 99.0% on-time-and-in-full delivery record.
