NSW Sony DADC Site Visit – Thursday, 24th August

We had another successful SCLAA site tour at Sony DADC Erskine Park. Some of the highlights of the tour included an overview of the incoming goods and bulk storage and picking process, pick to light operation and conveyor system that weighs each carton leaving the DC for freight weight and order integrity confirmation.

Facts around volumes for added perspective, 65 million units are shipped from the DC annually, 27,000 SKU’s are managed and approximately 5000 PO’s are processed per day, (3k during low trading and 10k during peak).

Thanks to all attendees and special thanks to our hosts Justin Clark and Ben Sammut – Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia.

NSW: AXIS Rehabilitation Industry Breakfast

Despite the torrential rain, NSW members gathered at the Sofitel Wentworth on Thursday June 8 to attend the AXIS Rehabilitation Industry Breakfast. Members were keen to learn about the latest research in health and wellbeing strategies.

Axis Business Partner, Michael Tew, opened the day and introduced the first of two keynote speakers – Dr Jay Spence, from Uprise.

Dr Spence provided an overview of current research into Health and Wellbeing strategies, and the effect that these strategies can have on workplace engagement. Among the key findings was that perceived support from managers have the greatest impact on staff wellbeing. Dr Spence revealed how positive outcomes can be achieved with interventions targeting the different levels of a business, from the individual to the organisation. Dr Spence remained afterwards to discuss mental health and wellbeing strategies with many of the attendees.

Following Dr Spence’s presentation, David Brentnall (Managing Partner from Axis) highlighted the importance of early intervention when managing workplace injuries. He provided attendees with 5 key principles highly performing workplaces are using to streamline injury management. David also presented data demonstrating the amount of money businesses save when implementing early intervention initiatives. In particular, reducing the length of time a worker is on light duties, and reducing the likelihood of a worker developing a chronic condition. In one year, this saved a truck manufacturer more than 80% in statutory claims cost.

Some great questions were raised by the audience during Q&A time, regarding implementation of onsite physiotherapy clinics. David highlighted that providing a suite of additional injury prevention services; such as risk assessments, task analyses, and health and wellbeing initiatives, makes good business sense.

It was a terrific breakfast, with many staying to network until the end.

NSW: Proctor & Gamble Site Visit

On 5th May 2016, twenty six SCLAA members were fortunate enough to attend a tour of the Procter & Gamble (P&G) Sydney facility. Within 1 hour of opening registrations for this tour the demand was so overwhelming that a second tour was arranged to give additional members the opportunity not to miss out.

The tour gave attendees exclusive insight into how one of the world’s largest FMCG companies develops a competitive advantage through high supply chain quality standards, innovative technologies and operational control. Discussions during the tour were very informative for all and deemed a huge success, with Mark Skipper our SCLAA Chairman noting that “it was one of the cleanest” facilities he has seen.

A special thanks to Sharryn Stephens and the P&G distribution team for hosting the event.

Dematic launches new solutions for eCommerce order fulfilment in Australia and New Zealand

SYDNEY, NSW – Dematic, a supplier of logistics systems for the factory, warehouse and distribution centre, has launched new automated technology and software solutions for eCommerce order fulfilment and retail store replenishment in Australia and New Zealand.

The new systems include batch pick-to-sorter for apparel eCommerce fulfilment and automated storage with goods-to-person (GTP) workstations for apparel omni-channel distribution.

The batch pick-to-sorter is a large volume piece picking solution that is well suited for a wide variety of order profiles and automated storage with GTP workstations is an efficient solution for high density storage of apparel items that feed order picking workstations.

Dematic has also launched a high performance apparel store replenishment solution – light-directed put-to-store – for operations with a large number of SKUs and low to high order volume.

“Dematic ensures that every new solution includes Dematic iQ performance optimising software that constantly runs in the background to help management evaluate operations and resource allocation,” said Pas Tomasiello, Director Integrated Systems, Dematic. “This allows management to make adjustments and prioritise workflows in order to increase productivity, reduce labour needs and ultimately help a business’ bottom line.

“Increased visibility of operations helps apparel businesses to meet the demands of the omni-channel shopper for swift delivery of their purchases.”

Dematic’s new solutions address the common issues associated with omni-channel retailing such as order fulfilment costs, margin pressure, SKU proliferation, order processing accuracy and inventory visibility.

The actual system configurations are based on business volume, geographic constraints and logistics philosophy.
