The BMW Group Australia have been experiencing an unprecedented growth period for 10 years. The considerable growth in sales increased the stock levels in the BMW warehouse in Melbourne from 9,318 vehicles in the year 1997 to 17,197 in 2007.
To continue to ensure premium customer service, BMW rely on the ’Twin-Warehouse’ strategy. A new National Distribution Centre (NDC) in Sydney and a separate warehouse in Melbourne should meet the increased demand for vehicle spare parts.
In Sydney, SSI Schaefer, represented by Schaefer Systems International , have equipped the 12,600sqm NDC with an R 3000 modular shelving system, an illuminated platform and a sprinkler system.
With the new NDC and the warehouse in Melbourne, BMW can fulfil 95% of the orders received during the day overnight.
