Ingham’s Enterprises needed to transition from decentralized third party logistics network to leases and operated distribution centers for full supply chain control. All distribution centers must be equipped for flexible building configuration to adapt frozen/chilled zones for future requirements, throughout storage and packing zones. Whilst also ensuring there is an ability for the integration of existing infrastructure including packaging and labelling equipment and facilitate the capacity to accommodate future 5 and 10 year growth projections.
TMX conducted a national supply chain network review, including location analysis to determine ideal facility location and sizing, in order to project manage the site through to site Go-Live.
The teams developed a highly detailed, technical design brief to ensure all performance criteria, creating a detailed design process to create optimum operational layout incorporating future flexibility.
TMX conducted a formal tender process maximizing competitive tension, assessing expressions of interest site search, submission review, risk assessment and shortlisting.
The completion of legal documentation was also carried out by TMX.
The TMX team offer a very deep knowledge base and adopt a strategic mindset. They are highly responsive and a safe set of hands.
TMX was able to drive over AUD$11 million in savings, through rent reduction, after improving the initial business case by over AUD$32 million, with significant transport savings due to the location secured.
The terms negotiated included an AUD$3.1 million fitout contribution and AUD$740k of provisional sums, where the commercial terms and leasing incentive delivery was optimized to meet Ingham’s business objectives.
All Inghams' operational and financial objectives were achieved with respect to their holistic, national supply chain network strategy, with early access for fitout and stock build and zero rental overlap at transition.
