BevChain partners with CUB in Brisbane

BevChain has secured a partnership with Carlton & United Breweries (CUB) to provide warehousing and metropolitan transport to its customer network in Brisbane.

Executive chairman Peter Fox said: "The partnership complements BevChain’s existing CUB network in New South Wales and Victoria and expands the BevChain family in Australia and New Zealand to more than 800 people.

"Since Linfox’s full acquisition of BevChain in 2017, the business has become the solution of choice for the beverage industry, today becoming an integral partner of the top two brewers and two largest liquor retailers in Australia.

"This expansion of our Brisbane network, along with the opening of our new Intermodal offering in north Queensland, broadens the possibilities for customers to extend their reach in north Queensland and beyond."

The news comes as Linfox offers a glimpse into its plans for a new multi-user distribution centre, to be developed following the purchase of land in Willawong, Brisbane.

"Customers will benefit from 50% more warehousing space, their own offices, high-security warehousing capabilities, and five different temperature-controlled zones to manage a range of goods from personal health products to medicines, food and beverages," Fox said.

"Sustainable design has been front of mind, with solar-power generation, smart LED lighting and water-capture facilities earning the design a five-star Green Star rating.

"We look forward to introducing our Queensland customers to the facility when it is completed."

BevChain is a Corporate Partner of the Drinks Association and an Award Partner of the 2019 Australian Drinks Awards.
