Linfox extends Myer partnership

SAP DWS Linfox

Linfox and Myer have announced an extension to their 34-year partnership for an additional seven years, building on shared values of trust and loyalty.

Since Linfox became Myer’s carrier of choice in 1989, they have provided transport services from Myer’s DC to all Myer stores across every major city in Australia (excluding Northern Territory and Tasmania).

The partnership provides operational excellence and peace of mind through investment in best practice logistics and reliable supply chain solutions.

“Linfox has built strong working relationships with key stakeholders across Myer stores and operational functions based on open communication and mutual respect, fostering confidence in all touch points of the supply chain,” says Andy Gissing, Linfox’s General Manager – General Merchandise Retail.

“Myer trusts Linfox to deliver on a shared commitment to safety and compliance, regularly collaborating to embed best practice safety standards across this busy operation. The deep level of trust that has developed over the years is the cornerstone of this relationship. We look forward to continuing our journey and supporting Myer into the future.”

Utilising a highly skilled and efficient driver network, the Linfox team safely delivers product to Myer stores nationally multiple times per day, often to inner city stores and busy shopping centre loading docks.

“Myer is committed to getting our product to customers in the quickest and most efficient way, and Linfox is instrumental in ensuring we deliver against this,” says Myer’s Executive General Manager of Supply Chain, Tony Carr.

“We have a longstanding and trusted relationship with Linfox built on their leading service, reliability and innovation that ensures we are stocking stores and DCs in the most efficient and productive way.”

As part of the extended partnership, Linfox will invest in new fleet for the Myer partnership over the next 12 months, all fitted with Linfox’s tracking technology, FoxTrax, to provide useful safety and delivery insights to drivers.

The shared vision for growth will also see Myer continue to invest in new DC facilities and equipment, which includes its National DC, which has commenced operational testing.
