Queensland Supply Chain Management Award
The Supply Chain Management Award is designed to encourage and acknowledge the outstanding achievement of an organisation that has demonstrated significant achievement in managing the integration of Supply Chains.
ScuzzTrans is a family-run Queensland-based transport company, with more than 30 year’s experience loading containers in and around the Port of Brisbane.
ScuzzTrans was looking for a way to streamline its Supply Chain which was becoming more and more complex with time. They needed a way to effectively manage the process of loading and offloading containers and freight and scheduling vehicle work flows. The answer came in the implementation of a track and trace management system combined with a Transport and Logistics management system.
The result was an integrated system that simplified the Supply Chain Management process that:
· Grew ScuzzTrans business by 35%;
· Streamlined processes in the office and the cab;
· Increased container movement while retaining the same amount of staff; and
· Delivered cost savings.
The system knows where its vehicles are at any one time and exactly what is on board. The impact of this system on ScuzzTrans has been enormous and it will continue to derive benefits for many years to come. It is a fantastic example to companies in Supply Chain & Logistics of what can be done over a relatively short period of time to streamline process and deliver benefits now and into the future.
Finalists were: Foodbank Queensland, Haymans Electrical, Pacifix, Queensland Rail & Davidson HR Consulting and ScuzzTrans.
