Announcement : Woolworths Meat Co Refrigerated Contract
RFT has announced to its employees that the business has been successful in being awarded the Woolworths Refrigerated Meat Co Melbourne – Sydney – Melbourne looping service contract for the next 3 years. This announcement includes the following:
This piece of work aligns well to RFT’s continued investment in our driver and operational skill sets, market leading technology platforms, advanced temperature control safety features and our desire to increase our refrigeration footprint.
The scope of the new refrigerated work is as follows:
- The route covers Truganina Melbourne – SRDC Minchinbury Sydney – Truganina Melbourne looping shuttles.
- Commencement date 16 April 2018
- 4 x single 26 pallet refrigeration vehicles a day with an extra vehicle for Thursday service.
- RFT moves to B Double 36 pallet refrigeration vehicles in September / October 2018 as new RFT equipment comes online.
The area of refrigeration transport has become increasing complex as customers become more discerning about the quality of the refrigerated product they receive.
RFT’s ability to provide live temperature GPS tracking data and set point temperature alert messaging configurations were highly valued by the Woolworths team, as is our proven ability within the NDC Melbourne – Sydney Linehaul shuttle contracts. RFT’s continued investment in Blue Tree IT platforms enables our business to lead the market in real time location and temperature monitoring of product ranges.
This new contract allows the opportunity for professional refrigeration drivers to join our RFT team to safely optimise our performance in this new business opportunity. It will also be important to continue to service the existing Woolworths contracts safely and reliably as well as deliver on the requirements of this new contract.
Our performance, reputation and capability to retain and win work is determined by our continued ability to provide safe and reliable service and delivery to promise.
