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

At a recent Super Retail Group Supply Chain gala event held in Brisbane on November 23rd, Bestrane was identified as one of a select group of companies to enable Super Retail Group to turn its supply chain vision into a reality in 2014 and going forward into 2015.

Over the last few years SRG has consolidated its supply chain to produce a highly efficient, multi-use supply chain used to service its diverse retail brands. The Web based Dock Appointment Scheduling Solution provides SRG 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 the solution.

Paul Armitage from Super Retail Group states, “The SRG and Bestrane team worked together to design and deploy the Dock Appointment solution for our 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 “The Super Retail Group has developed an impressive vision and is to be congratulated on 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.”
