Lightning may not strike twice, but hailstorms are another matter!
Seven years after previous storm damage, and two years into a five-year turnaround, Metcash found themselves challenged by another ‘act of god’ in NSW – the ultimate test of resilience for its Logistics Teams!
From its origins in 1920 as a family owned corner store, Metcash has evolved, uniting Australia’s independent grocers and diversifying its portfolio of businesses to become an ASX Top 100 Company.
To improve efficiency and drive value in the business, many technological improvements were pioneered in both wholesale and retail operations, introducing a number of innovations to Australia: electronic data interface for retailer ordering, case labels, retail shelf labels, scanners and other systems followed over the years.
Today Metcash continues the traditions established by its founder – it is acknowledged as a pioneer in distribution and warehousing expertise, and as a leader in supply chain and operational logistics.
Join us to hear from two very successful women who have demonstrated incredible resilience in the face of set-backs and are continuing the pioneering tradition – taking Metcash to its next stage of an inspiring Supply Chain Transformation.
This event will include lunch, the opportunity to network and a site tour of Metcash’s newest state of the art automated distribution centre (Places are limited).
