Myer and Linfox have extended their 34-year partnership for an additional seven years.

Since Linfox became Myer’s carrier of choice in 1989, the company has provided transport services from Myer’s distribution centre (DC) to all Myer stores across every major city in Australia (excluding Northern Territory and Tasmania). The Linfox team delivers product to Myer stores nationally multiple times per day.

As part of the extended partnership, Linfox will invest in new fleet for the Myer partnership over the next 12 months, all fitted with Linfox’s tracking technology, FoxTrax, to provide useful safety and delivery insights to drivers.

Myer executive general manager of supply chain, Tony Carr said that Linfox has been instrumental in delivering a more efficient and effective supply chain.

“Myer is committed to getting our product to customers in the quickest and most efficient way and Linfox is instrumental in ensuring we deliver against this,” he said.

“We have a longstanding and trusted relationship with Linfox built on their leading service, reliability and innovation that ensures we are stocking stores and DCs in the most efficient and productive way.”

Linfox general manager – general merchandise retail, Andy Gissing, highlighted that throughout the 30-plus year partnership, Linfox has delivered supply continuity with an ongoing commitment to supply chain excellence.

“Linfox has built strong working relationships with key stakeholders across Myer stores and operational functions based on open communication and mutual respect, fostering confidence in all touch points of the supply chain,” he said.

“Myer trusts Linfox to deliver on a shared commitment to safety and compliance, regularly collaborating to embed best practice safety standards across this busy operation.  The deep level of trust that has developed over the years is the cornerstone of this relationship. We look forward to continuing our journey and supporting Myer into the future.”
