Interdyn Opens New Warehouse in Response to COVID-19
Interdyn, the Melbourne based importer of leading audio-video brands has responded quickly to Victorian COVID-19 restrictions by opening a new warehouse in Western Sydney.
The third warehouse adds to Interdyn's existing Melbourne and Auckland locations and will mirror the Melbourne warehouse, with over $1M worth of stock already being received into the new site.
While Melbourne retailers are closed to the public under new Victorian restrictions, freight and logistics are permitted to continue working in a limited capacity. With the increased demand in Victoria for freight services as a result of online shopping, Interdyn moved quickly to ensure its customers across the country would still receive orders promptly if freight services slow down or face further restrictions.
In a communication sent to its specialist retailers, Sam Encel, Co-Director of Interdyn, said:
You can continue to place orders with us safe in the knowledge that we are experiencing no significant delays in logistics, and that the risk of disruption is now lowered significantly. We also expect to continue performing warranty repairs for Australia-based customers during Stage 4.
Sam also added that the uncertainty going forward for potential further national restrictions led Interdyn to “prioritise the protection of our supply chain to ensure that our dealers and customers have the best stock availability possible.”
The two warehouse points in Melbourne and Sydney, along with the Auckland warehouse servicing the New Zealand market, adds “additional insulation from any disruptions at a local warehousing and freight level.”
There are unconfirmed reports that one smaller Melbourne-based distributor using external warehousing and logistics services was closed earlier this week for deep-cleaning and contact tracing following a positive COVID-19 case.
Opening a new warehouse, filling it with stock and having operations in place to manage the logistics for fulfilling orders doesn't just happen overnight. Yet, only one day into Melbourne's new restrictions, Interdyn has seemingly done so.
