Coles Liquor Supply Chain Update
6th March 2019
I am excited to announce that Coles Liquor will embark on a partnership with BevChain to manage its DC operations and store deliveries in Victoria. This decision will enable Coles Liquor the ability to reduce lead times between order and delivery to stores, resulting in improved customer availability on our shelves and efficiencies for both our stores and our suppliers.
So, what does this change mean to you?
Coles’ existing Somerton distribution centre in Melbourne’s north will be transitioned to BevChain by the end of June 2019. From June 24th, all Victorian suppliers will be required to deliver orders to a new Distribution Centre (DC) located at 40-50 Nation Link Drive, Somerton VIC, 3062. Although we do not anticipate this change to impact you significantly, we will work closely with you over the coming months to ensure that you are across all the necessary details to support a smooth transition.
If you have any questions about this, please contact your designated Coles Liquor Category Manager.
I look forward to your assistance with this initiative and thank you for your ongoing support.
