Fiege has become the new logistics partner of Beam Suntory Deutschland GmbH with effect from 1st July 2022. The logistics company, based in Greven in Westphalia, will take charge of warehouse logistics, value-added services, and transportation within Germany, but also to Austria as well as parts of France for Beam Suntory, a world leader in premium spirits.
The global beverage manufacturer Beam Suntory enjoys international esteem for its diverse portfolio of high-class bourbons, Japanese whiskies, single malt scotches, gins and cognac that includes such world-renowned brands as Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, Courvoisier, Yamazaki, Laphroaig and Bowmore.
“We have chosen Fiege as our logistics partner because we are convinced that we are a great fit on more than one level,” says Sebastian Schmitt, Senior Director International Sales & Operation Planning at Beam Suntory. “Fiege has years of experience in warehouse and distribution logistics for spirits to show for. Moreover, Fiege – just like Beam Suntory – greatly values sustainability. Here too, we wish to take crucial steps and pursue our goals together in the future.”
Fiege processes the logistical operations for Beam Suntory on an area of roughly 10,000 sq m at its logistics centre in Bocholt, Münsterland which specialises in the handling of spirits.
Hannes Streeck, Managing Director at Fiege for Fast Moving Consumer Goods, explains: “Our location in Bocholt is ideal not only because it is conveniently situated in the centre of Europe – and therefore perfectly for Beam Suntory – but also because it is here that we operate one of Europe’s largest excise warehouses.
“We are extremely pleased to have won over Beam Suntory as a customer from the premium spirits segment of world renown. We very much look forward to the path ahead of us that we will be sharing.”
