DHL Supply Chain has signed a contract to become the Australian logistics provider of global eye care company, Alcon.
Building on the long-standing partnerships in Chile and New Zealand, DHL’s newest Life Science warehouse in Sydney will store Alcon’s vision care and surgical vision products.
DHL will handle Alcon’s storage, inbound, outbound and inventory functions, acting as a ‘one-stop shop’ for its vision care products.
Inbound and outbound shipments will also cater to Alcon’s Australian market.
“We’re very pleased to provide Alcon with a dedicated 3PL solution,” said DHL Supply Chain Australia CEO, Steve Thompsett.
“As the global leader in eye care, Alcon has an incredible range of stock-keeping units (SKUs) which saw several thousand pallets moved seamlessly across to our landmark Life Sciences facility over three weeks.”
Behind Alcon’s decision to partner with DHL is the quality compliance required for medical devices and the flexibility of the DHL network to scale operations.
“At Alcon, innovation is at the heart of what we do – and this includes innovating our commercial services so that we can deliver world-class products more efficiently and reliably to our customers to help more people See Brilliantly,” said Penny Stewart, Alcon Australia and New Zealand Cluster Franchise Head Surgical and Country Manager.
“We are thrilled to partner with DHL to get our products to our customers from all corners of Australia and New Zealand more efficiently.”
