Wine & Spirit Eurohub
Wine & Spirit Eurohub
The traditional wine sales model is most often based on local distributors. The volume of sales depends on many factors, e.g. the market on which it is conducted, the maturity of the development of distribution channels built by your representative or the price offered in relation to the quality/recognition of the drink.
Who among you hasn't experienced a situation where the wine you are about to order in a restaurant has just run out? What did you do? Have you ordered the other one? - Yes, and most often from another manufacturer.
This is a constant problem in Horeca markets and stores - stocks tend to run out. The main reason for this situation is the distance of stocks from sales markets. New World wine producers work with national or regional distributors to ensure supply, but if they don't correctly forecast sales for each of your products, they often run out of stock. Thus, you lose part of your possible sales. The stock will only be replenished once we receive the next delivery from your winery - and until then, other items will replace yours.
Moving inventory closer to the market and being able to quickly supply all distributors with a small amount of inventory can save the situation until your company places another large order and sets off on a long ocean voyage.
The solution may be to place certain quantities of your product close enough to be able to deliver it in a very short time.
Building a reserve stock for all distributors in one place allows producers from the New World to better manage inventories and maintain minimum level of inventory to guarantee the availability and continuity of sales of goods, the same as those of their European competitors. This will allow you to reduce losses resulting from unrealized sales.
We can organize your supply chains for distributors or in some cases you can reach end users such as Retail Distribution Centers across Europe.
We run Eurohub, which is dedicated to wine and alcohol producers from around the world, which ensures constant availability of goods for stores, e-commerce, retail and HoReCa.
We provide services related to the Supply Chain for producers/suppliers of wine to Europe from countries outside the European Union. We increase the availability of goods in European distribution networks by offering one central inventory (warehouse/hub) securing all customers in Europe. The goods are delivered to the final recipient located anywhere in Europe. The volume of deliveries will be adjusted to commercial needs (most often we provide pallet deliveries, so-called general cargo).
Moving the stock of stored goods closer to sales markets will increase their availability from distributors.
Sharing a central warehouse for wines allows you to consolidate loads from various import suppliers and deliver them to recipients in the expected quantities and time. Having a central warehouse ensures the consolidation of wines and spirits both from the EU (tax warehouse) and from other continents (customs warehouse).
Joint operation of the supply chain for many wine distributors operating on one market (as competitors) allows to reduce the costs and capital involved resulting from joint logistics operations. Thus, companies creating synergy may be more competitive than companies acting alone.
One of the main costs of the supply chain and lost sales opportunities is transcontinental transport, which is most often characterized by the need to load a full container with goods from one destination.
Cooperation in the supply chain of several companies importing goods from a given direction allows for the loading of smaller batches of goods and increasing their frequency, thanks to which the amount of frozen funds is smaller and the risk of long-term storage of goods that sell slower is significantly reduced. This also improves the flexibility of operation of distributors cooperating in the supply chain.
Increasing the frequency of deliveries allows for better management of warehouse stock and maintenance of minimum level of inventory guaranteeing the availability and continuity of sales of goods.
Storing goods in a customs warehouse does not result in the need to pay costs related to excise duty or other taxes resulting from the sale of goods. The goods remain the property of the manufacturer at all times until they leave the customs warehouse at his request. Then the sales document must be issued to a commercial company associated with the manufacturer with a European VAT number.
Transferring the administration and labeling of goods with excise stamps to Partner Logistic. All issues related to the administration of logistics and transport operations, including the handling of excise stamps, will be able to be provided by Partner Logistic as an additional service - thus, particularly burdensome administration will be carried out without any disruptions.
Possibility of providing other services that add value to VAS: banding, creating promotional sets, filling out promotional templates, customs and excise administration.
The location of our warehouse in Poland guarantees optimal transport and storage costs to recipients in the EU and the best delivery times.
Goods can be delivered directly from the warehouse to retail customers, distributors, private customers (e-commerce).
Possibility to maintain a minimum level of inventory for individual goods in one place on the European continent, guaranteeing availability and continuity of sales of goods
Having a warehouse in Europe ensures immediate increase in the availability of goods on the shelf and enables active response to stock shortages on the shelves through flexible inventory management and the possibility of faster delivery with Wine Eurohub.
