MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA, February 2015 – Bestrane Group

Bestrane has been acknowledged as a key participant in enabling Super Retail Group to implement a wide reaching supply chain network consolidation programme through the use of Bestrane’s web based MobileDOCK (Dock Appointment Scheduling) DC appointment booking solution.

At its recent Supply Chain gala event held in Brisbane, Super Retail Group acknowledged Bestrane as one of a select group of companies to enable the ASX-listed retailer to turn its supply chain vision into a reality in 2014 and lay the framework for continued change in the years ahead. Over the last few years Super Retail Group has consolidated its supply chain to produce a highly efficient, multi use supply chain used to service its diverse retail brands.

The Web based MobileDOCK Appointment Scheduling Solution provides the business with unprecedented management and visibility of inbound deliveries to reduce vehicle congestion and manage inbound inventory flows into their Brisbane and Sydney DC’s. This solution is now being expanded in scope and deployed to their Brendale and Altona DC’s Paul Armitage from Super Retail Group said the SRG and Bestrane team worked together to design and deploy the MobileDOCK Appointment solution for the business.

“We now have a dramatically increased level of visibility for our inbound deliveries across our DC’s. This has given us a much more accurate view of our capacity and labour requirements plus a means of managing congestion issues before they happen. We look forward to the teams continuing to work together as we expand our capability across our DC network.” David Sanders, Bestrane’s Managing Director stated “Super Retail Group has developed an impressive vision and is to be congratulated on the scope and quality of its Supply Chain initiatives.

Bestrane are proud to receive this award from Super Retail Group and we look forward to continuing to play a contributing role in the achievement of their Supply Chain vision and objectives.”
