Ingram Micro Improves Delivery Services Around Australia

  • 09 February, 2005 14:14

<p>Sydney, Australia – Ingram Micro (NYSE:IM), one of the largest global providers of technology products and supply chain management services, has ramped up its warehousing facilities in Melbourne and Perth improving its delivery services around Australia.</p>
<p>Ingram Micro acquired Tech Pacific in late 2004 and has since been integrating the operations of the two organisations across the Asia Pacific region.</p>
<p>“The Ingram Micro business in Melbourne will move into the new 6,000 square metre warehouse recently opened by Tech Pacific,” said Kerry Baillie, managing director of Ingram Micro Australia. “The new warehouse is significantly larger than Ingram Micro’s old Melbourne warehouse.</p>
<p>“The new facility will enable us to offer improved delivery times to that market and give us a better-balanced distribution model between Sydney and Melbourne,” Baillie said.</p>
<p>Ingram Micro will also open a new warehouse in Perth with 40 per cent more capacity than the current facilities of the two operations combined. “The new warehouse will open during Q2 and will enable us to better serve the Perth market and surrounding areas,” Baillie said.</p>
<p>Ingram Micro’s Brisbane warehouse will continue to service the Queensland market.</p>
<p>In Sydney, Ingram Micro will close its Flemington warehouse in Q2. “While jobs will be lost in Sydney when the Flemington warehouse closes, we will employ more people in Melbourne to support the new warehouse there,” Baillie said.</p>
