Joint venture Carlsberg Marston’s Brewing Company (CMBC) said it was consolidating its secondary logistics network into a single in-house solution for customers.
It added that this would create the largest logistics network dedicated to the ‘on trade’ operated by a brewer in the UK.
Before Carlsberg UK and Marston’s Plc teamed up in November last year to create CMBC, Carlsberg outsourced its secondary logistics to DHL Tradeteam.

CMBC said this agreement would conclude by mutual agreement to enable CMBC to provide a single logistics solution to its customers from March 2022, while DHL supported CMBC on future solutions.
Paul Davies, CMBC chief executive, said: “Investing in and expanding our own secondary logistics network, operated by our own team and utilising our own infrastructure is a great opportunity to offer all of our customers one logistics solution.
“Through this investment in people, technology, depots and vehicles, we aim to create the UK’s best logistics service, dedicated to the UK on trade.”
