Budweiser Budvar distributes over 20,000 kegs per year to up to 100 delivery points.

The Challenge

Budweiser Budvar distributes over 20,000 kegs per year to up to 100 delivery points. They came to Davies Turner in search of a Logistics provider that could not only excel in providing a top class service in receipt, handling and despatch but could also provide a solution for keg management and returns. The challenge was to ensure a smooth and efficient returns process whilst at the same time maintaining full traceability of all kegs in circulation from the first point of receipt at Davies Turner through to the final return to the Brewery in the Czech Republic.

The Strategy

We ultilised our marketing leading Red Praire warehouse management system to process all receipts, handling and despatch. Plus, monitoring all returns into the Czech Republic. Dedicated personnel were assiged to the account with specialist knowledge in the key areas.
 

The Solution

Our experienced team utilise our flexible and multi channel transport services to allow for the efficient and cost effective return of kegs, using a combination of our own dedicated fleet, TPN (The Pallet Network) and parcel carriers.  In addition to this through the use of serial capture at each point in the logistics process each and every keg is now fully traceable

The Results

Since coming on board in January 2017 Davies Turner has already transformed the keg management and returns process for Budweiser Budvar.

Our reporting package allows full visibility of all kegs in circulation and which delivery points require collection allowing for a much more effective and rapid returns process.
