Hills takes distribution back in-house

HILLS has now taken its supply chain functions in-house and opened a National Distribution Centre in Seven Hills, NSW, as part of its process of digital transformation.

Hills CEO, David Lenz, said that the facility would provide Hills with a future proof distribution capacity and support its new e-commerce platform that is scheduled to launch in February 2018.

“This is an exciting time for Hills,” Lenz said. “We are transforming our business to provide a better customer experience. The new e-commerce platform will give customers access to pricing and the ability to purchase online 24/7. It will also offer real time inventory, order tracking and an improved product search and compare capability.

“These changes will deliver improved productivity across our organisation, enabling our teams to be even more engaged with our vendors and customers delivering the high level of value added services that our customers expect. We have a big year planned and everyone is excited about the next 12 months at Hills.”

Hills’ new e-commerce platform will go-live in February 2018.1
