The wine and spirits industry continually looks toward supply chain partners that can provide the vital links to deliver their products to global customers. The correct shipping processes, security, legislation and care are all critical elements in a good relationship, and the emerging Wine & Spirits Logistics Alliance (WSLA) is providing innovative solutions that help.
KC Group Shipping is delighted to announce its inclusion as the exclusive UK agent, and is excited by the alliance partnership value it will bring to drinks logistics customers.
Founded in 2016, the alliance has global representation and delivers a full suite of services and solutions regardless of beverage or location.
Assisting customers in all aspects of business from planning through to delivery, the WSLA plays a vital link in any part of its customers' supply chain. It provides them with several development tools and processes to optimise every link of that chain.
Although the alliance has a global reach, it takes pride in the fact that strategically placed members provide local and regional knowledge value for customers.
Commenting on the alliance and partnership, Scott Parr, KC Group Shipping Commercial Manager said, “We are delighted to be a part of the alliance. Success lies within common objectives, and its ethos of ‘The Alliance is for the benefit of its customers and not for any one Alliance member’, is an approach that fits well with the shared knowledge culture of KC Group Shipping.”
The WSLA strategy is to provide customers with support in every aspect of Wine and Spirits production and shipping, with main partners in all the wine origins and key destinations. Furthermore, every WSLA member has the geographical insight and intimate knowledge of their specific market, a fact that is quickly being recognised by customers.
Scott added, “For over 30 years, KC Group Shipping has supported the drinks industry in the UK and we understand the competitiveness of the market and challenges the industry experiences. We are delighted to add WSLA to our range of services and solutions for the industry and provide a very ‘hands on partnership’ with customers.”
