Samskip Logistics: Raising the Bar for Craft Beer Supply Chain Support

Samskip Newsletter

Now that you know a bit more about Samskip Logistics and the many dedicated services they offer, let’s take a look at what they are up to today as we start the new year.

Among the many projects and goals they have in the pipeline, one exciting service they are currently pursuing is the boosting of their Craft Beer supply chain services. Though the largest craft beer production remains in the U.S. with 4,750 craft breweries of the total 5,025 major breweries, the market size of the Craft Beer production industry has increased 15.4 % from 2022 to end 2023 in the UK. The number of breweries in the UK increased from 1,489 in 2018 to about 2,426 in 2023.

For many years, Craft Beer has been handled by multiple Samskip offices which support diverse global markets which include The Americas, China and the Asian Continent, Europe, Scandinavia, Australia and the Middle East.

In addition to their powerful one-stop-shop of support services, Samskip Logistics provides both Import & Export transport services by Road, Sea and airfreight. Their expertise includes cool chain experience to support the logistics of these shipments. Much of the beer contains alcohol, and Samskip Logistics has the knowledge of the customs procedure necessary to ensure the easiest most efficient clearance process.

Samskip’s Craft Beer experience also stems from years of working closely with wholesalers, import and exporters, and brewers across the globe, building container consolidations of various types of beers in several locations as close as France and as far as Japan. And of course, Samskip offers service to global beer festivals that feature fresh Craft Beer providing support wherever it is needed. This means we also have experience with moving beer related products such as brewery kits, empty kegs, bottles, promotional material and of course the all-important hops. More than just a logistics service, the Samskip Logistics global team is a collection of specialists and no matter what the commodity, you can be sure they can provide the optimal support and reliable service you need.
