Family clothing retailer to move distribution to Christchurch

Following a thorough investigation into the most suitable location for a new replenishment centre for its national apparel chain the Board of Postie Plus Group Limited has selected Christchurch.

The Board's decision was based upon the company's need to locate all warehousing and distribution into one location, whilst achieving savings in operational costs; and satisfying logistic requirements of improving speed to market and proximity to ports and rail links.

PPGL had already based initial allocation of apparel product to its retail chains throughout New Zealand at Christchurch, as well as replenishment activities for the Schooltex uniforms brand. The full apparel replenishment facility for 75 Postie+ branches will become operational in Christchurch from this winter.

"The decision to position all warehousing and distribution in one location was made after a cost analysis indicated savings in excess of $2,000,000 over the next three years," said Chairman Mr Peter van Rij. "The savings are made up of a combination of freight, rental and staff costs."

"The current Westport location, operating as it does from a number of buildings, is no longer suitable because of a lack of space, modern facilities, and distance to market. The company commenced a search for a location that would provide it with the best long term result. All regions in New Zealand were included in the search for the best location with Christchurch and Auckland being the most appropriate to compare with Westport."
