Why a Perth DC?
In July 2014 we opened our first interstate Delivery Centre. We chose Perth as this was the furthest port from Sydney. The decision was strategic and designed to improve the delivery times to Western Australia.
The road service to Perth is normally three days from dispatch, so the Perth warehouse allows our customers to hold product in Perth and achieve a next-day delivery. It also provides quicker turnarounds to the Western Australian Remote Delivery market. Being first to market will help our customers grow and improve the service they offer to their customers.
New Zealand DC
The next stage in our growth will be a New Zealand DC based in Auckland. The rationale for New Zealand is similar to Perth with the benefit of saving money for our customers by avoiding excessive charges from customs and duties.
A DC in Auckland will remove the chance of product being stuck in customs causing delays to our eagerly awaiting customers.
New Facility Eucalyptus Drive
In January 2015 we will be moving to our new purpose-built facility around the corner in Eastern Creek. We will be consolidating one of the warehouses and moving into a warehouse double the size.
The new purpose-built facility will be 10,000 square metres or 90,000 square feet. It will have all of the modern refinements of a state of the art 2015 facility.
A DC will be placed in Brisbane, serving the Queensland country market, the fastest growing market.
