BrewDog xpo

XPO Logistics is to provide warehousing for craft beer company BrewDog.

The brewery has outgrown its storage facilities, having grown from a two-man team in 2008 to an employer of more than 600 people, shipping beer to more than 55 countries.

Bottles, cans and kegs of BrewDog beers will be stored at XPO's 125,000 ft² multi-user facility in Mossend.

They will be chilled to eight degrees before being prepared for distribution to BrewDog customers and its own chain of 50 pubs across Europe.

Peter Fuller, XPO Logistics business unit director, said: “The growth trajectory of BrewDog has been phenomenal.

"The business previously operated on a ‘make it and sell it’ model using its own shared storage and production facilities, but it has now far outgrown these.

"We’re providing BrewDog with the sophisticated storage and supply chain facilities that a fast-growing company of this size needs.”
