Breville Case Study
New DC helps transform Breville’s supply chain performance
Leading Australian home appliance manufacturer Breville has made a significant investment in its supply chain, recently relocating to a new, purpose designed national distribution centre (DC) at Minto in Sydney’s western suburbs. A key attraction of the Minto site was its close proximity to an intermodal rail container terminal, enabling improved shipping container handling efficiencies, a key supply chain driver in Breville’s high volume international product sourcing operations.
Being able to transport containers from Port Botany direct to the new Minto DC by rail eliminates a lot of the time and unnecessary handling and transport costs associated with receiving containers by road transport, said Breville’s Logistics Manager, Stuart Roche.
