DHL partners with Chemist Warehouse

  • Posted on Thursday 6th, December 2018.

Contract logistics provider, DHL, has partnered with Chemist Warehouse, which will see DHL manage the supply chain for fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) products and for front-of-store products going into their over 400 pharmacies nationally.

The partnership, according to DHL, will immediately streamline the supply chain into Chemist Warehouse and MyChemist pharmacies, by reducing its reliance on wholesalers.

“There are some immediate synergies that enable this to be a beneficial partnership from day one,” said DHL Supply Chain Australia & New Zealand CEO, Saul Resnick.

“Many of the FMCG and pharmaceutical manufacturers already store their products in our warehouses. This means we can go from a pre-wholesale environment direct to the Chemist Warehouse pharmacies, and ultimately take a movement out of the supply chain,” he said.

Additionally, DHL, on behalf of 31 customers, currently delivers in excess of 60 million units of medicines per year, to all of the community pharmacy across Australia via its Direct-to-Market offering, including the Chemist Warehouse network. “

“We already deliver to all of the Chemist Warehouse and MyChemist pharmacies on a regular and reliable basis, and have been doing so for many years now,” said Resnick.

“We are excited to leverage this existing platform to gain some supply chain enhancements, which will ultimately provide a more sustainable network for Chemist Warehouse,” he said.

“We are excited about our new partnership with DHL, an expert in the field of global logistics, and we look forward to working with DHL on further improvements to our supply chain to support the rapid and dynamic growth of the Chemist Warehouse business,” said Damien Gance, Director and Co-founder of Chemist Warehouse.
