Cross Docks Australia has announced the opening of dynamic new warehouse and distribution centre. Cross Docks Australia increased their warehouse capacity to more than 20000sqm, with the opening of their third multi-user distribution centre.
Cross Docks Australia has opened the new facility in response to increased growth and expansion of their clients’ businesses, and in particular to house and service their new customers AZ Designz and mila&milo.
The fully racked facility in the new multi-user distribution centre has implemented ISIS WMS (warehouse management system) and runs on RF (radio frequency) which dispenses with the need for picking slips. This increases productivity due to improved order turnaround time and increased inventory accuracy.
The new multi-user distribution centre will now host a number of new and existing clients. One such client is AZ Designz, which imports a contemporary range of tech gear such as compendiums, laptop bags and ipod accessories.
AZ Designz was previously operating its logistics services in-house but saw the need for a 3PL when its distribution requirements became increasingly complex and difficult. Warehousing and distribution is a simple process in concept but one that can cause a lot of problems if things are not run efficiently and with proper processes in place.
Cross Docks Australia’s Managing Director Shan Manickam was on the ground this week to ensure a smooth transition for their new client. “The partnership with AZ Designz is a great opportunity for both businesses. We are proud to be able to offer them a multi-user distribution centre and accompanying logistics services that enables AZ Designz to concentrate on what they do, without the headache of the distribution part.”
Far from resting on his laurels Shan Manickam sees this is as only the beginning. “For Cross Docks Australia the new facility is just the start. At the end of the day our business is about relationships and we are constantly trying to raise the bar when it comes to delivering a service that is specific to the needs of each individual client.”
