Portavin receives excellence award from DHL and Qantas

Portavin Integrated Wine Services established itself as one of Australia’s leading wine packaging and distribution companies after receiving a service excellence award from DHL and Qantas.                

The award was presented by Oren Cohen, national supply chain manager and Ian Frain, DHL Australia general manager along with David Imrie, Qantas product delivery manager at Portavin’s Cheltenham site in Victoria.

Responsible for supplying Qantas with wine in 187mL PET for inflight service in economy class cabins on all domestic and international routes, the company was congratulated for delivering great service over the past ten years.

Cohen said Portavin had delivered outstanding practice in supply chain management by meeting invoice accuracy, response to order and compliance to process.

Imrie also thanked the staff of Portavin, saying they remain an important part in the process of getting wine in the 187mL bottle delivered to every wine drinking passenger in the Qantas network.

Ian Matthews, Portavin Victoria’s managing director, said the entire team were extremely proud to be recognised and win the prestigious award.

“We have an incredible team here in Victoria, and receiving this award is a great acknowledgement of how committed we all are to providing exceptional client service,” he said. “We are honoured to work with companies like DHL and Qantas and we thank them for their recognition and look forward to servicing them well into the future.”
