Coles adds Linfox Intermodal and Bevchain to cart
Linfox has lauded its renewed relationship with Coles


Linfox’s Intermodal and Bevchain arms are new components in a growing strategic relationship with supermarket chain Coles.

Amongst the contract wins is a renewal with Coles in New South Wales, securing a long-term contract to deliver primary and secondary transport across the state.

"For more than 60 years, Linfox has earned the trust of some of Australia and New Zealand’s best-known brands," CEO Mark Mazurek says.

"We are extremely proud of our customer relationships, some of which date back to Linfox’s early days in the 1960s.

"Coles is one of those customers and I am very delighted to announce that Linfox has renewed several partnerships with them in recent months."

The logistics giant benefited from its intermodal diversification, selected by Coles to provide rail services into far north Queensland.

The intermodal arm also secured road and rail work with Coles Collect nationally as well as secondary transport between Melbourne and Adelaide, strengthening its road offering on the corridor.

"We are delighted to have Coles as a key partner as we invest and grow our services in north Queensland," Mazurek adds.

"This confidence in Linfox as a trusted partner is another chapter in our growing strategic relationship with Coles."

Linfox’s Bevchain liquor delivery arm, coming off a new fleet upgrade, was also recently appointed to provide warehousing and distribution services for Coles Liquor’s Liquorland, First Choice, and Vintage Cellars outlets nationally.

On Bevchain’s progress, Mazurek also lauds the work of Misha Shliapnikoff, the recently appointed Bevchain president.

"With the remarkable blend of supply chain experience, FMCG [fast-moving consumer goods] expertise, in-depth knowledge of beverages and demonstrated accomplishments building efficient, customer-focused organisations, Misha is the natural choice to drive Bevchain’s growth into the future," he says.

"Misha will also lead Bevchain’s ambitious project on behalf of Lion to automate our back of factory distribution centre (DC) in Sydney's inner west.

"The project will transform the DC into a cutting-edge facility designed to increase productivity and deliver future growth. I look forward to updating you as this project unfolds."
