Luxottica will soon close its distribution centre in Australia to move to its “master distribution hub in China”.
Anthea Muir, Luxottica President, Optical Retail Australia & New Zealand (pictured) said that this change is to “improve our effectiveness and in turn, serve our customers more quickly and efficiently.
“On a local level, this means better leveraging our master distribution hub in Dongguan, China, allowing us to centralize and strengthen our service to the important Asia-Pacific region.
“Bringing the regional work into a single facility will give us a tighter footprint and ensure a strong position in stock levels at all times, a critical tool in serving the customer.

“Unfortunately, the decision to leverage the Dongguan centre means we’ll be closing our Sydney-based centre by November of this year. We’re grateful to the team in Revesby for their hard work and dedication to service.
“Over the coming months, a global team will be working on the transition to supply Luxottica inventories from our distribution centre in China and will work with local suppliers to maintain our highest standards of service.
