Our Management Approach
Our management approach aims to empower our operational staff to deliver superior outcomes to our clients by ensuring they all feel connected to our business, our goals and the overall outcomes we seek to achieve for our customers and the wider community through our facilities.
Our managers are committed to delivering a lasting sustainable legacy for regional and rural Australia and the livestock industry as a whole through the positive outcomes the RLX initiative delivers whether you buy or sell 1 or 100,000 animals a year.
RLX sites provide a powerful forum for producers both large and small to capitalise the returns from their livestock enterprise by maximising buyer competition and market exposure.
The development and adoption of new technology has been a core component of the success of the RLX initiative with the adoption of automated weighing and processing systems, incorporation of online technologies to enhance pre-sale marketing opportunities and the availability of objective market data. Additionally facility designs have achieved enhanced animal welfare outcomes, improved operator safety and whilst simultaneously delivering greater profitability for our clients.
