Linfox’s subsidiary BevChain says it is excited to announce a new warehousing agreement with Woolworths Group’s supply chain arm, Primary Connect in New South Wales (NSW).
It says the agreement will see it manage beverage warehousing from a new liquor DC in Kemps Creek in NSW.
“We are excited about this new agreement with our valued customer, which speaks to the reputation of trust earned by BevChain to help Woolworths Group grow stronger with smarter supply chain solutions,” Misha Shliapnikoff, President of BevChain, says.
“BevChain’s beverage expertise, scale and agility helps position our customers for future growth while remaining flexible enough to respond to shifts in demand,” he adds.
BevChain says more than 150 new leadership, specialist and frontline warehouse roles will be created to support the partnership.
It notes as Primary Connect finalises the transformation of its NSW supply chain network, the 35,000 sqm state-of-the-art liquor DC will service more than 400 Dan Murphys and BWS outlets across NSW, further reinforcing logistics capability at a time when robust supply chains are increasingly important across Australia.
“This new development at Kemps Creek is another exciting step in our Primary Connect journey to become Australia and New Zealand’s next-generation supply chain,” Chris Brooks, Director of Transport and Primary Connect at Woolworths Group, says.
“We look forward to the service improvements we’ll see for Endeavour Group, and we’re pleased to strengthen our partnership with BevChain through this development,” he adds.
BevChain says with construction already underway, the new site will be fully operational by early 2023, with new roles being advertised in the next few weeks.
