Inbound Logistics business reshaped in response to changed supply chain demands

Murray Goulburn restructure sees 60 tanker jobs axed

Dairy foods company Murray Goulburn Co-operative is set to let 60 tanker drivers go as part of a corporate reshaping move.

A company statement released on Monday states that a reduction in milk supply, as well as changed milk collection needs led to the restructure of its Inbound Logistics (IBL) business.

A number of support roles are also expected to get the axe, something the company says will improve logistics efficiency and increase earnings.

"The phased changes to IBL will significantly increase MG’s logistics efficiency relative to milk intake, while ensuring sufficient capacity to manage collections through seasonal peak production," the company statement notes.

The tanker operators who will lose their jobs as part of this move are based in Koroit, Leongatha, Maffra and Rochester.

The company says changes to rosters as well as voluntary redundancies will be offered initially to minimise the impact on workers.

"We are committed to ensuring that we provide any affected employees with appropriate levels of support and the recognition that they deserve during this period of transition," the statement notes.

"MG will support employees by providing access to career transition and redeployment services.

"These actions are regrettable but necessary to ensure a strong MG that can deliver sustainable and competitive returns for our suppliers."
