About Toll Remote Logistics
Toll Remote Logistics (TRL) has been contracted as the Fourth Party Logistics (4PL) service provider to source, procure and supply a range of Defence commodities across Australia. Toll Remote Logistics is part of Toll Group, with over 125 years’ experience, operating an extensive global logistics network across 1,200 locations in more than 50 countries. Its 40,000 employees provide a diverse range of transport and logistics solutions covering road, air, sea and rail to help its customers best meet their global supply chain needs.
About the Project
Toll Remote Logistics’ 4PL contract will support the Australian Department of Defence’s Commodity Reform Program (CRP) and is consistent with recommendations from the First Principles Review (2015) and Defence Industry Policy Statement (2016). Under Toll Remote Logistics’ 4PL contract, Defence is seeking:
To reduce the cost of ownership for commodities across the Defence supply chain by utilising ‘Smart Buyer’ principles
To implement a business model that simplifies the procurement, delivery and management of Defence commodities
Initially the commodities to be sourced by Toll Remote Logistics are primarily for Defence’s Land Systems Division of Defence and cover categories including Vehicle Components, Electrical Supplies, Batteries, Tyres, Tools, Hardware, Containers, Cleaning Products and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). A complete list of the 50+ commodity groups to be sourced are included in the PDF listed under the ‘Project Documents’ section of this page. The sourcing of items for each commodity group will be phased in as current inventory held by Defence is consumed and/or new items of supply are required.
Currently, excluded from this program are the categories listed below:
Defence classified rotable and principal items
Bulk petroleum, oils and lubricants procured by Defence’s Joint Fuels and Lubricants Agency
Ration packs and garrison services food products
Military combat and non-combat uniforms, footwear and accoutrements
Medical and dental pharmaceuticals and consumables
The market engagement to source capable suppliers will commence in August 2018 with initial contracts expected to be progressively awarded around October / November 2018. The supply of the first tranche of commodities is expected to commence around December 2018 / January 2019.
Toll is seeking Invitation to Register (ITRs) from capable suppliers who can provide items of supply for the nominated commodity groups. A full list of the commodity groups, master descriptions and examples of products is available as a download on this ICN Gateway project page under the ‘Project Documents’ section below.
