The Melbourne Emporium
Emporium Melbourne hosts Australia’s first Uniqlo, the largest Australian designer precinct in the country and 30 unique food icons, all in the heart of the CBD.  The precinct features a mix of local and international designers, innovative concept and flagship stores and world class architecture.

Emporium Melbourne is a 46,000 square meter retail asset located in one of the most congested parts of the CBD on the corner of Swanston and Lonsdale Street. It is a site with unique logistics/stock delivery challenges.

Site Visit

The post lunch site visit led by Arron Renehan, Operations Manager – Emporium, will provide an overview of:

  • The 7000 m2 floor space conversion that would otherwise have been needed for long ramps converted to retail space.
  • Drivers’ knowledge of exactly when to arrive at the building to receive direct access to a specific bay eliminating the search for loading zones.
  • The elimination of queuing times and the dramatic reduction of truck idle time at Street Level.
  • Emporium’s “premium service” deliveries for its high profile tenants and valuable analytics regarding tracking the arrival and departures of each load.

The 2015 SMART innovation award for Emporium’s ‘MobileDOCK’ Dock Management system at the SMART conference recently held in Melbourne.
