Bapcor Is Changing The Game In Distribution

A new custom-designed facility will set benchmarks of distribution speed and efficiency, the company says.

One of Asia-Pacific’s leading providers of vehicle parts, accessories, equipment, service and solutions, Bapcor Limited, wants to completely “change the game” in product distribution excellence.  

The Australian company is building a new Victorian Distribution Centre located within the largest business park in the Southern Hemisphere, Melbourne Airport Business Park. This custom-designed facility will set benchmarks of distribution speed and efficiency that the company says are unparalleled in the Australian automotive aftermarket industry.

Featuring almost 50,000 square metres of warehouse space under one roof, this enormous project has been in construction throughout 2020, continuing solidly despite the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The new Bapcor Distribution Centre is being equipped with world leading supply chain systems, with the constant focus points on safety and complete efficiency throughout every aspect of the distribution centre’s operations. A dedicated Project Management Team, bolstered with the key assistance of supply chain expert partners Xact Solutions, is conducting detailed systems testing processes and strategy planning to ensure that this completely custom designed facility remains on track for scheduled initial operations by mid-2021. 

All of the innovations and efficiencies to be gained by the new Bapcor Distribution Centre are the direct result of listening to the company’s customers across all divisions of its growing automotive aftermarket business. The impetus behind this project is to ensure that Bapcor delivers fast, accurate and efficient service that not only meets but exceeds their customers’ expectations.

“The new Bapcor Distribution Centre represents a major investment and vote of confidence in the future growth of Australia and the Asia Pacific’s automotive aftermarket industry,” said Bapcor Limited CEO and Managing Director, Darryl Abotomey.

“Our new Victorian Distribution Centre will set entirely new benchmarks in automotive aftermarket supply chain efficiency and customer service excellence. These include the precise handling of an unsurpassed inventory range of more than 166,000 SKU’s with the use of next level technology and process excellence utilizing world leading warehousing systems,” Abotomey added. 

The new Bapcor Distribution Centre includes “Best of Breed” supply chain process systems including Schafer Goods to Person Technology and the latest specification Manhattan Warehouse Managing Systems. It will deliver unprecedented levels of efficiency to Bapcor’s Trade, Specialist Wholesale and Retail business segments, geared to ensure the current and long-term growth of all Bapcor automotive aftermarket businesses.
