Howard Tenens Logistics has landed a new deal with London-based award winning Beavertown Brewery, after impressing the company with its environmentally-aware, family-oriented and innovative ethos.
The deal follows Heineken’s recent acquisition of Beavertown Brewery, which produces a range of unique beers, including the popular Neck Oil.

Announcing the deal, Howard Tenens Logistics said that with over 4.5 million sq ft of warehouse space and a proven track record in the food and beverage industry, it was well-positioned to deliver on this requirement.
It added that the Beavertown Brewery team, was impressed by the way the family-owned haulier placed a high value on innovation, sustainability and building and maintaining customer relationships, which matched Beavertown Brewery’s own values.
The brewer was particularly impressed with Howard Tenens Logistics’ level of commitment to sustainability, demonstrated by its investments in its CNG and HVO-powered fleet, its commitment to cut annual CO2e emissions by 20% by 2030, and to reach net zero by 2045.
