Woolworths banking on ‘quantum-leap‘ from new distribution centre

We’re pleased to announce the Melbourne South Regional Distribution Centre is in the running for the KONE Award for Development Innovation at the 2019 Property Council of Australia / Rider Levett Bucknall Innovation and Excellence Awards in May.

The Melbourne South Regional Distribution Centre is Woolworth’s latest modern facility using world class automated technology to deliver enhanced customer, safety, supply chain, economic and sustainability benefits.

Global benchmarking indicates the end-to-end design of product flows, process design and development innovation has not been delivered previously providing a clear competitive advantage.

The collaboration with development partners, suppliers and store operations has reset the benchmarks of what can be achieved in distribution centre development in Australia and worldwide.

The facility features on page 22 of the RLB Oceania Construction Market Intelligence Report Q1 2019.

Client: Woolworths Group
Services: Cost Management & Quantity Surveying
