The business challenges
Lindsay Australia has been serving Australia ’ s farming community for more than 60 years . The company transports 1.6 million tons of freight annually including fresh produce and seafood across dozens of locations – many of which are in the most rural parts of the country . This level of logistics requires expert co-ordination as fresh items have limited shelf lives .
“ Farmers depend on us to deliver their harvests quickly and efficiently , and the rest of the supply chain depends on us as well ,” said Robert Hodgkiss , IT Infrastructure Manager at Lindsay Australia . “ Over the years we ’ ve earned a leadership role in the industry , and we take that very seriously .”
Lindsay Australia has a modern fleet of more than 1,000 vehicles and containers , an expansive national footprint , a fully engaged workforce and an efficient IT infrastructure that supports the entire operation . When the company ’ s legacy backup solution was no longer reliable and began to threaten the integrity of data supporting the logistics of food delivery , the IT team replaced it .
