2015 SCLAA Chairman’s Report

Dear Members,

Thank you for attending the 2015 AGM of the Supply Chain & Logistics Association of Australia.

The SCLAA has completed another successful financial year and indeed calendar year, with hard working Divisions in Queensland, New South Wales, ACT / Southern NSW, Victoria / Tasmania, South Australia / Northern Territory and Western Australia, comprising of their committees and Presidents.

Our revenue for the financial year was $855,792 and expenses $795,856 resulting in a surplus of $59,936. Revenue, expenses and the surplus were all up on prior year primarily due to the Federal Government Grant we received at the start of the 2013 Financial Year.  The Grant program was completed on time and under budget, and we were able to return unspent funds to the Federal Government. Though good management, the Board this Financial Year paid back the cash loans on the Queensland, Western Australia and Victorian SCLAA Divisions.  I would like to especially thank our Treasurer Peter Hollins and the Office Logistics team.

Retained earnings / Total Equity are a healthy $323,430.

As mentioned at the last AGM, the SCLAA tried hard to merge with the LAA, but it wasn’t to be and the LAA Directors wound up the LAA earlier this year.  The SCLAA ultimately benefited and we saw new members in all 6 of our Divisions and we are now at 27 National Partners more than double the same time last year.

During the year we released our new website, which is easier to manage and add content. Our Google Page rank has increased and our website visits were up 14% year on year.

The SCLAA is actively look at ways to increase events, membership, and revenue and reduce expenses all commensurate with improving member value.

The key objective for this year will be to roll out our strategic plan and increase revenue and membership. The Board has all three in motion.

We want to thank you for your support, feedback and suggestions with all our events during the year.

I would like to thank all Members, National and Corporate Partners, the Board, Division Presidents and Committees, Office Logistics and special Committees like the Awards and Future Leaders Group for their support and dedication during the year.

On behalf of the SCLAA National Board, Division Committees and all the volunteers at the SCLAA, we would like to wish members a Merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year and continued success in 2016.

Mark Skipper

National Chairman

Unpacking Shipping Containers

In the last five years SafeWork NSW has investigated 21 incidents in NSW involving workers unpacking shipping containers.  Three of these workers were killed.

The most serious incidents involved unpacking sheet material such as glass, stone, sandwich panels and timber.

SafeWork NSW is running a program to highlight the risks associated with unpacking shipping containers and to provide simple advice on how to manage these risks.  A video safety alert and guidance material will be available in the coming months.

If freight isn’t packed with safe unloading in mind, or if it becomes unstable during transit, workers unpacking it can be at risk of serious injury or death.

If you unpack shipping containers, use these simple tips to keep your people safe.


Work with suppliers to ensure the load is appropriately packed for safe transit and unpacking.  Ask them to use racks or crates, and to secure freight with wrapping or strapping.  You can also ask suppliers to use containers that are open at both ends or have an open top for safer access.

Bulky Items 2Bulky Items 1

Bulky items packed using crates, wrapping, dunnage bags and strapping


Plan before you unpack the container and consider what equipment you will need. Choose an area with flat ground and unpack at ground level where possible. Be careful when opening the container in case the load has shifted. Keep looking for risks as you unpack, and adjust your plan as conditions change. Instruct workers about safety procedures and make sure they are appropriately experienced and supervised.

Even Ground


Ensure the container is placed on even ground  









      Use restraints to ensure safe opening of doors





Use a crane or forklift with attachments such as grabs, spikes or slippers, to avoid manual unloading. Never allow people in or around the container while using machinery to unload.  If you’re using a crane and it’s necessary to guide the load, make sure it’s from a safe distance using a tag-line.

Suitable Equipment




Using suitable equipment to unload such as grabs or jibs          







Dual lift to unpack long items





Never allow workers inside the container if there is any risk of objects moving and trapping them. Where there is a risk, brace freight with suitably rated restraint devices such as props, braces or frames. Secure freight for as long as possible by only removing restraints as necessary during unpacking.


And remember, you should always ask for help if you don’t have the equipment or expertise to safely unpack a container. Hiring equipment or engaging specialists to do the work can help.

If you have any questions on how to unpacking shipping containers safely, please phone SafeWork NSW on 13 10 50.

Inspiring Lunch and Site Visit for Women in Supply Chain

Women inspire Melbourne’s Supply Chain

Pic 1On Wednesday 14 October 2015, the Emporium Melbourne and the Bestrane Group hosted a networking lunch for women in supply chain. The event attracted 32 women with leading supply chain management roles and included a site tour of the Emporium’s innovative dock management system which was awarded the 2015 SMART Innovation Award for its ‘MobileDOCK’ Dock Management system.

The Emporium Melbourne is a 48,000 square meter retail asset located in one of the most congested parts of the CBD on the corner of Swanston and Lonsdale Streets in Melbourne, Australia. The site has some unique logistics challenges; it can only be accessed via a narrow laneway and its footprint ruled out traditional inclined ramps into loading locks.

The theme of the event was Excellence. Elegance. Ease. The guest speaker, Laura Anderson, Chairman Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival described her remarkable career and her belief that supply chain is an exceptional career choice for women (and men). Laura emphasized that Australia’s ability to trade is critical to our country’s future prosperity, which is underpinned by supply chain excellence.

The event attracted 32 women in leading Supply Chain management roles representing Sinochem Australia, Queen Victoria Market, PFD Food Services, Ctrack ANZ, Xtreme Freight, The Good Foundation, The Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources, NBN, Bestrane, ARRB Group, Victoria University, Secon Freight Logistics, Myer, Safe Sense, Treasury Wines Estates, Lion, VicRoads, Australia Post, Australia Post, Woolworths, Australia Post and Kings Transport.

Pic 2Post lunch, the site tour commenced led by Arron Renehan, Operations Manager at Emporium, Shannon Donaghey, Dock Master at Emporium, and David Sanders, Group Managing Director at Bestrane.  Adorned in pink safety vests, the group descended to Emporium’s famous loading docks via the largest lifts in the Southern Hemisphere. The lifts replaced long ramps; enabling the site to add an additional 7000 m2 of retail floor space.

Tina Sheldon from the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources commented “The loading dock is quite futuristic really and at the same time the fellow who manages it is so empathetic and down to earth. As well as being very impressive in scale and sophistication, I would even go so far as to call it glamorous!”

Emporium partnered with Bestrane to automatically schedule the use of the two hydraulic truck lifts using a unique web based appointment solution called MobileDOCK. The 2015 SMART award is the culmination of the Emporium/Bestrane partnership and an example of what can be achieved when vision, hard work and innovative technology combine.

This solution has driven many benefits for Emporium including:

  • Adding an extra 7000m2 of retail floor space that would otherwise have been needed for long access ramps.
  • Drivers know exactly when to arrive at the building to receive direct access to a specific bay eliminating the search for loading zones.
  • Queuing times have been eliminated which also has dramatically reduced truck idle time at Street Level.


  • Live since August 2014.
  • Over 90% of appointment bookings made and approved automatically via the web with NO INTERACTION required from Dock Management at Emporium.
  • Congestion has been all but eliminated from the site.
  • Unauthorised vehicles being identified before entry to the Emporium site.
  • Increased site security and visibility of who is onsite for what periods of time
  • Ability for all supply chain parties to manage and record their Chain of Responsibility obligations.

MobileDOCK is a collaborative, web based on-demand solution that enables carriers, suppliers and distribution centers (DCs) to schedule their commercials inbound and outbound appointments to specific docks at specific facilities.
