One of Scotland’s most successful and reputable breweries has appointed Palletways Edinburgh as its logistics partner.
Stewart Brewing required a logistics provider that could deliver locally, throughout Scotland and into England to expand the availability of its products.
Kirsty Menzies, logistics manager at Stewart Brewing, said: “Our business is based on three basic principles; to produce beers of the highest quality possible, provide an exceptional service to our customers and to have fun doing it. Working with Palletways Edinburgh fits perfectly with our ethos and we have confidence that our customers will receive their pallets undamaged and on-time.
“Palletways Edinburgh offers an efficient service and importantly, their user-friendly portal ensures our telesales team have clear visibility of all our consignments so they can easily track pallet movements.
