In Australia the agricultural industry is experiencing major trading difficulties. The project reported here was undertaken to investigate means of streamlining the operation of a major national supplier of farm input products with the objective of decentralised selling with centralised cost‐effective support services and nationally centralised order processing. The preliminary logistics audit is described including supply chain analysis, inventory management, order processing and freight/distribution. Analysis of this led to detailed recommendations. The many recommendations were implemented by the company during the year of the project′s lifetime – a signal success!
