National cold carrier and warehouse specialist, Scott’s Refrigerated Logistics has appointed a new Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director.
Former Glen Cameron Group CEO, Nicholas Capp was appointed to the position in May.
In June Glen Cameron Group announced that it had agreed in principal for DHL Supply Chain to purchase the business.
Capp’s departure predates that recently announced acquisition.
He replaces Brett Lynch who had occupied the CEO chair at Scott’s Refrigerated Logistics since December 2020.
Capp’s appointment is part of a raft of recent new managerial appointments at the private company that include Fiona Benjamin as National Project Manager, James Lindsay as Continuous Improvement Specialist, Allan Assoni as Logistics Planner and Robyn Holt as a HR Business Partner.
During his first eight weeks at the helm, Capp has been travelling the country meeting with customers and many of the 2000 strong team at Scott’s Refrigerated Logistics.
“I’m very excited to take the helm at Scott’s Refrigerated Logistics and deliver on its next stage of development and growth,” he said.
“It’s hard not to be amazed at the scale of our business and its status as Australia’s largest integrated cold chain network,” said Capp.
“There are amazing stories and histories across the Scott’s business from fresh juices and avocadoes in WA, bananas and capsicums in the North, dairy out of the South or meat from all corners.
“A massive array of products are being stored and distributed for leading producers, manufacturers and retailers across our eighteen depots nationally.”
Capp’s role, as he sees it, is an opportunity to amplify the ongoing efforts of the team across its huge network.
“Our focus and what we will be known for is outstanding reliability whatever the conditions – excellent execution, day in, day out,” he said.
“Cold chain is time-sensitive at every step and we recognise the critical role we play for our customers in maintaining the integrity of products within a multitude of supply chains across Australia.”
Currently headquartered at Erskine Park, New South Wales, Scott’s Refrigerated Logistics has been in the industry for over 70 years.
