DHL / Alcon Expand Partnership

Building on longstanding successful partnerships in Chile and New Zealand, Alcon has assigned DHL Supply Chain as its logistics provider in Australia.

DHL will handle storage, as well as inbound, outbound and inventory functions, effectively acting as a ‘onestop shop’ for Alcon’s vision care products.

Announcing the partnership, the companies said the contract caters to the needs of high standards for medical products and provides necessary flexibility to scale operations.

“We’re very pleased to provide Alcon with a dedicated 3PL (third party logistics) solution,” said DHL Supply Chain Australia CEO Steve Thompsett.

“As the global leader in eye care, Alcon has an incredible range of stock-keeping units (SKUs), which saw several thousand pallets moved seamlessly across to our landmark Life Sciences facility over three weeks,” he said.

The multi-customer site in Horningsea Park, in southwestern Sydney, has a fivestar Green Star Rating and is a temperature-controlled facility powered by green electricity.

Penny Stewart, Cluster Franchise Head Surgical and Country Manager for Alcon Australia and New Zealand, said Alcon’s drive to innovate “includes innovating our commercial services”.

“We are thrilled to partner with DHL to get our products to our customers from all corners of Australia and New Zealand more efficiently,” Ms Stewart said.
