QuayConnect in the running for a Deloitte Energy Excellence Award

Port Nelson has been announced as a finalist in the Large Energy User Initiative of the Year category in the Deloitte Energy Excellence Awards, less than two weeks after winning a national 2017 Green Ribbon Award. The Deloitte Energy Excellence Awards ceremony will be held on 9th August in Auckland.

Motivated to reduce fuel consumption and energy use across the company and provide supply chain improvements for customers in the Marlborough wine industry, Port Nelson worked with trucking company Central Express Ltd (CEL), and primarily two 3PL customers - glass bottle manufacturer O-I New Zealand (NZ) and wine bottler WineWorks Marlborough - to set up QuayConnect in February 2016 as a smarter way of distributing goods.

QuayConnect is the future of distribution logistics.

QuayConnect is a better way of distributing goods, by focusing movement around a central, port-side storage hub, resulting in optimal import and export loads through all phases of the supply chain.

What is QuayConnect?

What's wrong with the existing model.

With current distribution methods, there are simply too many under-utilised ship movements, empty truck transfers, unnecessary storage stops and underfilled trucks making their way around New Zealand.

How does QuayConnect compare?

  • The Existing Model
  • Major supply chain inefficiencies
  • High per unit costs
  • Few partner synergies
  • No sustainability focus
  • Unnecessary cargo movement/cost
  • The QuayConnect Model
  • Cost and load efficiencies
  • Reduced per unit costs
  • Win/win partnerships
  • Improved sustainable practices
  • Reduced carbon footprints
