ALDI Australia has been recognised as a Trusted Trader by the Australian Border Force. The Australian Trusted Trader (ATT) program recognises businesses with a secure supply chain and compliant trade practices. The way we operate within our supply chain is trusted and in turn, we have access to benefits such as reduced waiting time for the release of our goods at the border.
“We work hard to ensure that our dealings with the Australian Border Force are consistent and that responsibility is taken at every step of the way. The accreditation is a nod to the hard work of our Logistics team, who are responsible for the smooth transition from customs, to our warehouses and finally to our stores,” said Adam Maher, Corporate Logistics Director at ALDI Australia.
Who does this accreditation benefit? A number of our stakeholders:
- Our business partners – who have knowledge that the goods they supply to us will experience faster customs processing and fewer interventions, which in turn can be factored into production timing and cost of the product.
- Buying teams- who benefit from increased efficiency and security, knowing our shelves are sufficiently stocked. It also helps ALDI forge new global trade links with certainty.
- Customers – our product will be on our shelves when we say it will.
Whether it’s the 500 award-winning products stocked on our shelves or the policies we have in place that make our business practices more sustainable, we never cut corners when it comes to doing the right thing by our stakeholders.
