Welcome to Coles

 

The Coles Supplier Portal helps support effective working relationships between Coles and our suppliers, providing better coordination and communication to help drive efficiencies along the supply chain.

The portal also helps our suppliers by providing information to assess their performance on a regular basis and identify opportunities of improvement along the value chain.

We work closely with suppliers to take effective measures towards continuous improvement and have discussions with suppliers about opportunities and areas for improvement.

 

 

 

Coles supply chain modernisation

 

05/10/2018

 

Dear Partner or Supplier,

 

I would like to advise you that a decision has been made to modernise our existing supply chain network by investing in two new automated ambient distribution centres over the next five years. These centres will be located in Queensland and New South Wales with operations expected to commence in 2022 and 2023 respectively.

 

This is an unprecedented initiative for Coles, as we are making the largest ever investment in our supply chain and adopting global best practice. Taking this step will set the foundations of future growth across our entire business.

 

This project also supports our long term strategy to modernise how we operate, improve availability for our customers, enhance store service, lower stock loss, increase our network capacity and importantly, to provide a safer working environment for team members.

 

It is important to note that there will be no changes to how your business interacts with our Supply Chain in the short term.

 

You have our commitment that we will work with you over the next five years to understand what this decision means for your business and teams in terms of working with our Supply Chain.

 

We look forward to continuing to work with you for our mutual success.

 

 

Yours sincerely,

                                                                                           

                                                                           

Greg Davis                    Matthew Swindells     

Chief Operating Officer               Supply Chain Director
