Solely devoted to beverages

As a wholly owned subsidiary of Linfox, BevChain provides national tailored supply chain solutions for the beverage industry across Australia and New Zealand with ‘best-in-class’ warehouse management and distribution services.

In Australia we lead the industry, with two out of every three alcoholic serving units handled via our managed network, and deliveries to more than 25,000 outlets nationally.

As specialists in warehousing and distribution of alcoholic beverages, we understand the demands placed on the liquor industry and its customers.

Since our inception, a growing number of suppliers of beer, wine and spirits have taken advantage of our logistics model for beverage-specific services and our ability to tailor solutions to their needs.

The satisfaction of our customers has led to major growth for our company, enabling the formation of a national delivery network. Through our ‘one-stop-shop’ concept we have since become an instrumental leader in the alcoholic beverage 3PL industry.

Today, BevChain successfully consolidates products from over 25 different customers, including some of our favourite beer brands, for distribution across Australia and New Zealand.

Iconic Route

Our vehicles operate in some of the most stunning scenery in the world. BevChain delivers kegs and packaged beverages to pubs and outlets across Australia. In Sydney, one of the busiest but beautiful delivery routes takes in The Rocks and Eastern beaches.

From a strategic discussion between Linfox and Lion, a partnership was formed. As a result, BevChain was created.

The story of BevChain began in 2006, when Linfox and Lion joined forces to become an end-to-end 3PL provider for the beverage industry.

The partnership grew from strength to strength, and in September 2017 Linfox bought Lion’s share of BevChain, taking full ownership of the business.

BevChain will continue to build smart supply chain solutions for beverage suppliers, while leveraging the capability and scale of Asia Pacific’s largest privately owned logistics provider.

In partnership with Linfox, our vision is to be the most trusted logistics provider in Australia and New Zealand.
