Linfox extends partnership with Myer

Linfox will continue to be the lead supplier for department store chain Myer

Logistics specialist Linfox has announced that it has extended a more than three-decade long partnership with Myer for another seven years. 

Since beginning its partnership in 1989, both Linfox and Myer have grown to become two of the largest and most iconic businesses in Australia. 

Linfox says that it continues to deliver Myer an operational peace of mind through investment in best practice logistics, reliable supply chain solutions and loyal people. 

Throughout the partnership, Linfox has provided transport services from Myer’s distribution centres (DCs) to all Myer stores across major cities in Australia. 

Linfox says it utilises a highly skilled and efficient driver network that safely delivers apparel to Myer stores national multiple times per day, often to inner city stores and busy shopping centre loading docks. 

Linfox says the partnership has also managed to navigate through tough times such as the COVID-19 pandemic while Linfox has also built a strong working relationship with Myer through open communication and mutual respect. 

Myer and Linfox have regularly collaborated to embed best practice safety standards across the operation. Linfox says this has led to vast improvements in vehicle manual handling and ensured clear access to delivery points. 

Positive outcomes have also been achieved from improving load restraint practices and optimising vehicle weight from diminishing loads. 

Myer is committed to getting our product to customers in the quickest and most efficient way and Linfox, our domestic freight partner, is instrumental in ensuring we deliver this key strategic pillar,” Myer supply chain executive general manager Tony Carr says. 

“Myer and Linfox have a longstanding and trusted relationship built on our leading service, reliability and innovation that ensures we are stocking stores and DCs in the most efficient and productive way.”  

Linfox says it will invest in a new fleet for the partnership over the next 12 months while Myer will also continue to invest in new DC facilities and equipment. 

Linfox’s tracking technology, FoxTrax, will be fitted into the fleet. Linfox says the technology will provide useful safety and delivery insights to drivers.  

Linfox says that Myer particularly respects the professionalism and efficiency of its drivers, many of whom have dedicated more than 25 years of their Linfox career delivering for Myer. 

Linfox retail merchandise general manager Andy Gissing has been committed to the partnership for more than 20 years. 

“Linfox and Myer have a unique and inspiring history,” Gissing says 

“The deep level of trust that has been developed over the years is the cornerstone of this relationship.

“We look forward to continuing our journey and supporting Myer into a safe and sustainable future.”
