IT'S ALL ABOUT THE POWER OF THE KEGSPEDITER NETWORK
Kegspediter Kegs Returned Annually
Designed for the brewing industry, Kegspediter is the gold standard in keg management. SLG combined the power of their intelligent software solution with their large domestic and global network of distributors and consolidation hubs to collect and return your kegs fast.
"Beck's Brewery has experienced a significantly faster keg turn-around time than expected thanks to Satellite Logistics Kegspediter® System. Participating in the Kegspediter program has allowed us to overcome long keg turn-around times. We have received value from our business relationship through lower capital investments in new kegs. We have a high level of trust and rapport with the professional staff [at SLG]."
— Brauerei Beck & Company
"The scope of SLG's responsibility has increased dramatically — operationally, but on the strategic side too. They went from just returning kegs to processing them — draining, bar-coding, separating, maintenance — and helping us to determine our overall needs."
— Crown Imports LLC
"The team at SLG has really helped us understand the Kegspediter process and have earned our confidence in the system. We have been able to plan-ahead and have full loads of empty kegs ready for loading which gets them on the road back to the brewery faster."
— Frank B. Fuhrer Wholesaler
"SLG provides a personal touch to the service they provide to us which has fostered a great working relationship between our two companies for the Kegspediter® and EcoBev® services."
— Faust Distributing
"Enrolling in the Kegspediter program was the best operations business decision Summit Brewing has made. SLG literally saved the day for our brewery when other partners refused to pick up empty kegs during a terrible snow storm and treacherous road conditions. We were going to have to halt production without those kegs. But Kegspediter® came to the rescue with a load of kegs from Chicago and we were able to meet our production demands."
— Summit Brewing Company
"The Kegspediter team at SLG has been great to work and communicate with in getting our empty kegs returned. We are filling more and more kegs each month and the SLG team has been very proactive in contacting distributors on our behalf."
— Free Flow Wines
"We are in the midst of our busiest summer ever and are still struggling to keep up with draft production due to incredible demand and need for empty kegs. I don’t like to think about where we’d be if we hadn’t started using Kegspediter ... it would be ugly."
— Deschutes Brewery
