Australian businesses discuss procurement processes

Coles, Toll and Bluescope Steel are synonymous with economic power in Australia, but they also spend billions on transport services and equipment every year. At the inaugural Global Truck & Trailer Leaders Summit (GTTLS) in Melbourne, they will open up on how they decide where to invest that money.

In an Australian first, GTTLS will host a group discussion with key decision makers from all three industry powerhouses in order to discuss how large companies make fleet decisions. The session on day two of the event will also highlight some key issues large-scale companies are currently facing – including OH&S, Chain of Responsibility and vehicle design.

According to GTTLS host and ARTSA Chairman, Dr Peter Hart, it will be an interactive session with direct audience participation and will give important insights on issues such as safety, productivity, environmental factors as well as serviceability of equipment.

Tim Kehoe, General Manager for Toll Liquids (pictured), Craig Porter, National Fleet and Asset Manager for Coles, and Tony Cranley, National Logistics and Contracts Manager for Bluescope, will join Dr Hart to reveal what drives their contract and purchasing decisions.

“Insights into customer thinking are what all suppliers want to hear, and this session should prove immensely valuable in delivering that feedback,” Dr Hart said.
