Delivering Excellence for Ozito
In the dynamic world of logistics, choosing the right partner is paramount to the success of any business. For Ozito, a leading supplier of tools and equipment, that partner is Border Express. The partnership between these two companies has been nothing short of exceptional. Factors that influenced Ozito’s decision to choose Border Express in 2019 for their transport and logistics needs included national coverage, exceptional account management, transparent and efficient communication, and top-notch operational performance.
A Personalised Approach and Strong Culture
One of the key factors that drew Ozito to Border Express was the personal touch and genuine care they received. Unlike some logistics companies where clients can often feel like just another number, Ozito found that we treated them as a valued partner from the very beginning. We pride ourselves on maintaining a culture of agility, adaptability, and a willingness to make changes when necessary. This culture aligns perfectly with Ozito’s own values and goals.
Ozito’s Warehouse and Logistics Manager Stuart Prior explains, “Border Express’ customer service is up there some of the best I’ve ever dealt with. We’re not just a number, we’re important in their business.”
Ozito emphasises the significance of the relationships they have developed with us. From the moment of pickup to the highest levels of management, the level of engagement and communication has been outstanding. This personal feel in the partnership has been a cornerstone of our successful collaboration and partnership with them.
Meeting the Requirements of a Bunnings Supplier
As a Bunnings supplier, Ozito’s primary requirement is to have a carrier that is part of the Bunnings Core Carrier Program. Border Express checks all the boxes, boasting a national reach and impressive speed to market, ensuring timely service to all Bunnings locations. This alignment with Bunnings’ requirements has been instrumental in Ozito’s partnership with Border Express.
“Border Express are a big part of the core carrier program with deliveries into Bunnings. There are only a limited number of transport companies that are accredited. It allows timely delivery to the store especially for their exclusive suppliers, like us.” Stuart Prior says.
When evaluating their options, Ozito found several key advantages that Border Express offered compared to other carriers. These included being a core carrier, specialising in bulk transportation, strategically located facilities, dedicated account management, and responsive customer service. The competitive pricing and consistent high levels of service added to the appeal.
