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 world-class 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 DC ensures that Winning Services can “uniquely mitigate middle mile logistics costs and decrease supply chain lead times for third party customers, a first of its kind for big and bulky home products”.
The Winning Group is a family-owned and operated business and one of Australia’s leading retail and logistics companies. With 115 years of history and service and multiple awards under its belt, the businesses’ entities include Winning Services, Appliances Online, Winning Appliances and Home Clearance. In Australia, Winning Services offers third-party logistics services for retailers across furniture, bedding, fitness and appliance categories and will be looking to expand this offering to New Zealand.
Ryan Fritsch, COO, Winning Group says, “With some of the highest net promoter scores in the world for logistics and as a leader in big and bulky warehousing and end mile customer experience, we are 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, “We’re absolutely thrilled to be launching Winning Services’ on Kiwi soil and establishing ourselves in the logistics market here.
