How Does Logistics Management Work at Elite Logistics Austraila
Elite Logistics Australia is a leading retail transport, 3PL and 4PL logistics management company. Our team utilises state of the art freight management and supply chain technology to streamline the logistics experience for businesses across Australia. The Elite Logistics business can be divided into three divisions: retail transport, 3pl warehousing and logistics solutions. However, our ability to service all 3 areas allows us to provide thorough, flexible solutions catering to your specific business logistics requirements.
Our History of Logistics Management
Elite Logistics Australia began in 2006 under the name ‘elite retail logistics’. It was a state-based operation focusing on retail logistics for the fashion industry. Although originally targeting the Adelaide market, the operation expanded to other states such as Queensland, Western Australia, and Melbourne. In 2020, each state-based operation integrated under the national ‘Elite Logistics Australia’ enterprise. This merge was shortly followed by the acquisition of CS Logistics’ Melbourne warehouse; allowing ELA to branch out into the 3pl warehousing, pick and pack warehousing and logistics solutions divisions.
Our retail transport services exclusively cater to fashion retail high streets and shopping centres. Elite logistics Australia has an in-house fleet of fully insured transport delivery vehicles in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, and Brisbane. Transport solutions can consist of store-to-store deliveries, store-to-DFO, DC-to-store and special retail projects. Our in-house retail logistics management services mean you will only have to deal with Elite logistics Australia rather than a variety of carriers. We will set up your business with freight management technology that provides live, real-time freight monitoring, alongside monthly financial reports. Giving you the data to help streamline operations. You can organise custom or daily driver runs to greatly improve efficiency on store-to-store transfers. Our tailored approach can give you the increased capacity and speed of a large-scale carrier, with the specialised and detailed custom capabilities of a smaller local freight fashion delivery specialist.
Elite Logistics’ Melbourne-based 3pl warehouse facility spans 23,500m2 racked, with a 12,000-palette capacity. Located in Truganina, the warehouse is perfectly positioned with practical access to key freight and road infrastructure such as the ring road, west-gate freeway, wharf, and Melbourne airport. Ensuring rapid transport and delivery capabilities within Victoria and around Australia. We service retail, fast-moving consumer goods and light industrial sectors within our 3PL warehousing and retail transport operations. However, we operate on a contract basis and require that businesses must be operating on a minimum of 1000 palettes a year to offer our 3PL warehousing capabilities. E-commerce product fulfilment, inventory management, quality control, stocking, returns management and labelling are all logistics management services integrated with our 3PL warehousing.
Elite Logistics Australia partners with leading transport companies to negotiate an optimised carrier experience for your business. Our goal is to help you cut costs and increase efficiency. Rather than requiring an in-house logistics team, staff dealing with multiple carriers, the stress of missing goods and poor solutions, our logistics solutions division will cover all these issues instead. Our skilled specialists and cutting-edge freight management technology can help rectify any mistakes caused by a carrier and we can take accountability to ensure that problems will be solved, and goods delivered. Our multi-carrier portal will help display B2B and B2C movements in one easily accessible location. Meanwhile, our weekly DIFOTs (Delivered in full on-time reports), operational and financial documents, and benchmarking analysis and reporting can give your business valuable insights into the logistics operations.
Transitioning your logistics management to 3PL.
Rather than diving into the deep end, Elite Logistics offers step-by-step guidance to help transition your business to a 3PL logistics operation. Our team will personally assign your business with an account representative to help introduce all our services, and we will generate a tailored approach that we believe will benefit your business in the most effective manner. After the introduction, your business will be integrated with all our cloud-based freight management software and logistics technology so you can track and manage all your products. However, our thorough reporting and logistics management analysis will continue throughout the entirety of the contract to ensure full accountability and transparency.
Custom Logistics Management
By transferring your in-house logistics to a 3rd and 4th party provider such as Elite Logistics you will free up time and costs for your business. Meanwhile, a dedicated logistics company with dedicated resources can provide you with a premium logistics experience. No more dealing with multiple carriers and logistics providers to deal with shipping delays or missed orders. Our team uses cutting-edge technology and integrations to produce the most efficient and smooth warehousing operations for any B2C business.
