Dematic, one of the world’s leading suppliers of logistics systems and solutions, has received an Innovation Award in recognition of its contribution to the success of Coca-Cola Amatil’s (CCA) new Distribution Centre (DC) at Eastern Creek in western Sydney.
The award was presented at the beverage distributor’s inaugural Supplier of the Year Awards at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney.
The awards recognise excellence in six categories: Account Management, At Work
Business Partner, Customer Service, Innovation, Process Improvement and Sustainability.
An overall CCA Supplier of the Year was also selected, with this award going to packaging supplier Visy.
Dematic was represented at the awards by CEO Glen Borg and Industry Logistics Manager David Rubie.
“For Dematic to be recognised as the best from amongst hundreds of CCA suppliers in such a highly contested category, is an outstanding achievement,” said Mr Rubie.
The CCA award is the second time the Eastern Creek DC has received recognition, with the site winning the prestigious Manufacturing Logistics Award in last year’s Supply Chain & Logistics Association of Australia’s national awards.
The Eastern Creek DC services CCA’s 14,000 Route Trade customers in NSW.
Within just eight weeks of operation, CCA was achieving record-breaking productivity rates of more than 1400 picks/hour at the Eastern Creek DC thanks to a world-first order picking methodology developed by Dematic.
