Beverage and food transportation is constantly evolving, dominated by strict regulations, demanding customers and rising cost pressures
Food and beverage logistics – Digitalizing your transportation process
Compliance, optimization, visibility and reliability in food and beverage logistics
Food and beverage supply chains are designed with little margin for error. This is partially due to the large number of parties involved, but also the perishable nature of the goods, safety regulations and cost pressures. This unique set of circumstances means successful food and beverage businesses are dependent on effective tracking, clear visibility and compliance.

Food transport – Visibility and reliability
Alpega has developed a number of logistics solutions specifically for the food and beverage industry. Smart Booking, is a cutting-edge slot booking solution, devised to manage the unique complexities of the sector.

Alpega’s Real Time Visibility Network solution gives shippers full visibility of goods and a dynamic ETA. In an industry characterized by tight deadlines, lean supply chains and advanced planning, this proves invaluable and greatly increases customer satisfaction rates.

Transportation of food products – the right carrier for your needs
Given the perishable nature of goods in the food and beverage supply chain, keeping them fresh and adhering to safety regulations is a key concern. Transport storage methods play a vital role here and timings, temperature control, humidity, floor contact, ventilation and pest control are just some of the risks that need to be managed.
In this context, it’s always a good idea to work with carriers that have the expertise and equipment to provide the perfect service, at an optimal cost. The Alpega Hub provides access to 80,000+, pre-vetted carriers, each with their own capacity and expertise. Carrier score cards let you know exactly what to expect from each carrier and rest in the knowledge your products are in safe hands.
