New Woolworths Contract Barnawartha
New Woolworths Contract - Barnawartha on Monday, 20 August 2018.
RFT has recently been awarded a new contract for work related to the Barnawartha DC for Woolworths Secondary Freight. This work, which will service stores within the Riverina area and in Albury and Wodonga, is in addition to the current work that RFT undertakes at Barnawartha. As a result of this new contract RFT will begin advertising for new roles within operations and for drivers. We will also be investing in additional prime movers, refrigerated vans and other trailer equipment. This equipment will be progressively delivered into the fleet.
The new contract start date is yet to be finalised but is expected to be sometime late October or early November.
The success in winning this contract follows on from previous successes in securing additional and contracted work with Baiada and Hyne Timber. Our long term reputation based on being a safe and reliable transport provider has helped us win this new contract. Customers are increasingly seeking to partner with transport companies that can they can rely upon to deliver legally, safely and compliantly. The pending changes to the Chain of Responsibility (CoR) regulations will continue to support this approach.
My thanks to all those RFT employees who help manage, operate and maintain the Barnawartha based fleet. Your efforts in ensuring that we reliably and safely deliver to the DC and their customers each and every day has helped us to secure this additional work.
Having won the work we now need to ensure that we have equipment and the additional team members in place to start on time and continue to build on our strong brand and reputation with the Woolworths team.
