Bells Pure Ice risk management policy ensures that all plants constantly and consistently manufacture and store pure ice. The aim and result of this policy is that our customers will always be fully stocked.
Bells can produce over 1,200 tonnes daily at five company owned manufacturing plants across Australia. Having multiple production plants reduces the single site production risk for customers and ensures reliability and dependability of year-round pure ice supply especially during the peak summer period and the critical Christmas and New Year’s peaks.
Bells Pure Ice is palletised for ease of loading, storing and supply chain management.
Bells uses the latest packaging and manufacturing processes. When you buy a Bells Pure Ice bag you know that “It’s safe to eat”.
Each ice manufacturing plant has cold storage facilities for the storage of ice. Bells stores in excess of 14,000 pallets at any one time.
Bells delivers 365 days per year. As 70-80% of ice is sold on weekends and Public Holidays, Bells is flexible and ready to respond at short notice, including during extreme weather which can impact your sales dramatically. Bells has an integrated forecasting, ordering and logistics customer relationship system to enhance the reliability of its distribution to customers. When hot weather is approaching Bells responds and delivers.
Bells’ delivery staff are fully inducted and trained for the safe delivery of ice and comply with any customer requirements. Each branch has distribution allocators monitoring deliveries to ensure dependable and timely service.
Deliveries are tracked in real time and invoiced onsite via a PDA. Vehicle tracking results in more immediate response times to meet customer requirements.
Bells Pure Ice provides clean, modern and power efficient freezers for merchandising ice at retail outlets. Freezers come in various sizes and types and Bells can supply one to fit any customer requirement. Bells monitors the conditions of all their freezers and repairs and replaces them on a regular basis.
All freezer cabinets are fully owned and maintained by Bells. The company employs a team of refrigeration mechanics to provide preventative maintenance and breakdown repairs.
