8 February, 2024 – Ligentia and Myer have announced a new two-year strategic partnership to further enhance and automate Myer’s international supply chain.
Under the new agreement, Ligentia will continue to manage Myer’s international supply chain, supported by the Ligentix supply chain platform which provides Myer with accurate landed cost and end-to-end visibility of their supply chain critical path, from production confirmation, to freight booking, through to delivery to stores spanning Australia.
“We’re delighted that Myer has rewarded our service over the past three years by extending our agreement,” said Dean Neville, Australia Managing Director at Ligentia. “We look forward to continuing our work collaboratively with Myer’s team, to help deliver more supply chain efficiency and visibility.”
Handling the importation of over 20,000 TEU of goods per year into Australia for Myer, the Ligentia team manages Myer’s international suppliers and oversees the booking and delivery of 88M units per year of inventory manufactured in key locations such as China, India, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Turkey and elsewhere.
Ligentia’s offshore teams handle quality control checks, security tagging and other pre-retailing services before port splitting and scan packing each unit of stock against Myer’s store allocation list, ensuring goods are ready to roll out onto the shop floor as soon as they arrive at final destination.
Tony Carr, Executive General Manager, Supply Chain, said: “Our requirement for an International freight partner had to marry up with the Myer Customer First Plan and our move into becoming a data driven business.
“Ligentia’s commitment to proven technology and supply chain visibility, combined with their customer hub and people approach, made it an easy decision for us.
“Ligentia’s freight and OVAS services coverage from Asia, Sub-continent and European origins, provides Myer with a dependable and agile supply chain platform to deliver our directly sourced products into Australia effectively and with transparent efficiency.”
Ligentia is also proud to support the Myer Community Fund and has participated and donated to the Precious Metal Gala for the last three years in a row.
