Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL) has appointed automotive logistics specialist AutoNexus as a new supply chain partner.

Well-versed in working closely with local and international OEM teams, AutoNexus offers Isuzu its portfolio of vehicle storage and processing, pre-delivery processes and systems integration, delivering premium fulfilment solutions.  

IAL national sales manager Les Spaltman said the arrangement will bolster Isuzu’s ability to supply vehicles amid increasing demand.

"Everyone in the road transport industry appreciates the extraordinary circumstances that we’re currently operating under—from demand for transport services to labour and capital equipment, we’re seeing unprecedent activity in every aspect of the market," Spaltman said.

"By engaging with a class-leading logistics provider, we’re ensuring we meet the appetite of the market today and build our capacity for the future."

IAL director and chief operating officer Andrew Harbison welcomed the new partnership, noting stock availability has been a challenge for OEMs like Isuzu.

"Supply chain issues have persisted following manufacturing delays last year, and there’s a long way to go until goods and services start moving freely around the world again as they once did," Harbison noted.

"Our new partnership with AutoNexus gives us the ability to continue to ramp up supply, especially in the light-duty, pre-bodied market segments where demand on our products is particularly high.

"AutoNexus is recognised as the market leader in premium automotive fulfilment solutions, with proven experience in elements critical to our ability to build supply chain capacity and deliver more vehicles to our dealers and customers.

"I’m extremely confident this robust partnership will work to strengthen our position within the market even further."  

AutoNexus managing director Darren Bowler said his company was looking forward to working with Isuzu to provide for the road transport and logistics industry.

"Isuzu’s reputation precedes them, and we will be working to streamline supply chain efficiencies and get more Isuzu trucks from wharfs out to dealerships, assisting with meeting the market demand."
