- Reverse logistics and returns management
IFC completes the supply chain management process through the distribution of goods from our 3PL facilities domestically and internationally. IFC has options suitable for both eCommerce retailers who ship direct to customers, or retailers requiring stock delivered to stores.
Distribution is most efficient when road transport is carefully considered. A variety of trailer configurations are available in Australia, from small rigid trucks with smaller loads of 15 tonnes to large road trains that increase to more than 120 tonnes.
End-to-end track and traceability
The ability to view and monitor every activity throughout the supply chain, from off-shore supplier delivery consolidation to the distribution to the end-consumer, is a key advantage to any supply chain operation.
National e-parcel services
For businesses that operate in the e-commerce space, shipping direct for the warehouse to the customer must follow an efficient process via post or delivery.
When a business or customer may return a good to the manufacturer, an efficient reverse logistics process minimises waiting times for both parties.
IFC has a global network with distribution centres around the world to meet the warehousing and distribution requirements of various industries. The following locations demonstrate the storage capabilities of IFC both domestically and internationally.
