Award-winning, family owned and operated Australian business Winning Group has expanded into New Zealand with the launch of Winning Services and a 6,300 sqm distribution centre in Waitemata Ports of Auckland, providing a unique third party logistics offering for big and bulky home retailers.
With Waitemata Ports being one of the main hubs for entry and dispatch of overseas goods, the location of the distribution centre ensures that Winning Services can mitigate middle mile logistics costs and decrease supply chain lead times for third party consumers.
With 115 years of history and service and multiple awards under its belt, Winning Group is one of Australia’s leading retail and logistics companies. The businesses’ entities include Winning Services, Appliances Online, Winning Appliances and Home Clearance. In Australia, the company offers third-party logistics services for retailers across furniture, bedding, fitness and appliance categories and will be looking to expand this offering to NZ.
Ryan Fritsch, COO, Winning Group says the company is delighted to launch Winning Services in New Zealand.
“Logistics has been at the core of the Group’s success and we saw a gap in the market and an opportunity to bring our legendary care, in the form of world-class warehousing and delivery service, to big and bulky home products in New Zealand.”
Michael Bunt, General Manager Operations at Winning Group, says New Zealand had always been on the radar, and the location in Waitemata Port is ideal for providing cost and supply chain efficiencies for customers.
“For Auckland-based customers, goods are able to be destuffed, stored, dispatched and delivered straight from the Ports and for the rest of NZ, Winning Services can facilitate the dispatch of goods from location, ready for line haul to other parts of the country – a first-of-its-kind offering for big and bulky home logistics and freight services.
“Aside from offering an unmatched third party logistics service to Kiwis, we are also wholeheartedly committed to providing our customers with the best experience possible every time they use our service. We look forward to welcoming new customers and making our mark in NZ”, says Bunt.
