COMPLEX LOGISTICS

Mt Buller Sales and Development manager Matt Elliot said: "At this stage of the season, Mt Buller/Mt Stirling Resort Management Board is satisfied with Orcoda’s management of the complex transport logistics operation at the resort. The app-based consumer interface and logistics management platform is delivering on our stakeholder needs."

"People are obviously relieved to be able to enjoy the ski season this year.

"Orcoda is happy to contribute to making great memories. Thankfully Melbourne is currently not in lockdown. This means that Mt Buller is experiencing record numbers coming to the resort, but obviously we are mindful to monitor the fluid Covid situation.

"The driver’s procedures involve enforcing state Covid recommendations. "Our aim is for our technology to assist them to be ‘best in class’ in terms of both safety and efficiency for themselves and the customers.
