New brewery here, hitting our first problem that I could really use some help with.
We are lucky enough to be receiving orders from outlets for between 3-12 crates of beer at a time. (20 x 330ml bottles in crate)
We have been delivering ourselves locally and into London but now we are getting orders from locations that we do not have time do drive to.
I could really use some recommendations for couriers or any other way of getting our beer delivered.
We incentivise larger orders 6+ crates with free delivery but are struggling to make margin on this.
Am I missing something obvious? How do you get your beer to the shops? There doesn’t seem to be any reasonably priced courier for heavy, large, fragile cargo.
A crate measures 32 x 24 x 24 cm weighing 11.4 kg.
How do you guys do it?
Any help appreciated.
