March News Brief

Dear valued customer,
Welcome to the March edition of our News Brief.

In the dynamic world of logistics, adaptation is the cornerstone of success. At FJT Logistics, we have long been recognised for our traditional approach of pallet in and pallet out operations.

However, the winds of change are sweeping through our warehouses, ushering in a new era of technological integration and customer-centric solutions.

The traditional model of bulk pallet handling is evolving as our customers’ needs evolve. We are witnessing a growing demand for more discreet picks, where individual items are selected based on specific customer requirements. This shift is driven by changes in customer demographics and preferences. While pallet-based operations were once the norm, we now find ourselves catering to a diverse clientele seeking more frequent and tailored services.

Integral to this transformation is the integration of advanced technologies into our warehouse management systems (WMS). Many of our customers are seeking seamless integration between their systems and ours. This integration allows for real-time communication, ensuring that orders placed in our customers’ systems seamlessly flow into ours. From order placement to packaging and delivery, this streamlined process enhances efficiency and keeps our customers’ systems aligned with ours.


Embracing Technological Advancements:
A Paradigm Shift in Warehousing at FJT Logistics

Indeed, this shift towards customization and flexibility empowers us to cater to the unique needs of each customer, fostering a dynamic and innovative environment.

Looking ahead to 2024, FJT Logistics is poised for growth and expansion. With our warehouses operating at full capacity and a new facility underway in Sydney, we are on the cusp of an exciting chapter. The forthcoming Sydney warehouse will mirror the operations of our bustling Melbourne facility while catering to the unique demands of Australia’s largest market.

In summary, FJT Logistics is not only adapting to change but embracing it wholeheartedly. By leveraging technology and innovation, we are revolutionising the way we do business, offering a myriad of options to meet the evolving needs of our customers. 

With a presence in every capital city of Australia and Auckland, we are well-positioned to support both national and local customers alike on their logistical journey. As we embark on this transformative journey, one thing is certain – the future of warehousing at FJT Logistics is bright, dynamic, and full of endless possibilities.

The Albanese government plans to abolish nearly 500 “nuisance” import tariffs starting July 1, including those on items like toothbrushes, hand tools, fridges, dishwashers, clothing, and menstrual products. 

These tariffs, set at 5%, will be removed to reduce compliance costs, streamline trade, and boost productivity. 

The decision, described as the biggest tariff reform in two decades, aims to simplify Australian trade and assist small and medium-sized businesses. 

The move is estimated to save businesses over $30 million annually in compliance costs. Consultations are ongoing, with the full list of abolished tariffs to be provided in the May budget.

As your trusted freight forwarder, we understand the importance of staying ahead of regulatory changes and optimising supply chain operations.

The government’s focus on facilitating trade that is simple, fast and cost-effective aligns perfectly with our mission to provide seamless logistics solutions to businesses of all sizes.
