Wine and beverages

Specialized logistics in the
alcoholic beverage industry

We are the right partner

Managing this type of goods is among the most critical and demanding in the sector. The maximum protection of the goods must be guaranteed throughout the entire logistics chain, from the pick up at the winery to the delivery to the final consignee at destination, to preserve the organoleptic qualities of the wine, the integrity of the packaging as well as the traceability of the batches and the timely delivery.

Storage, handling, and transport are therefore all essential elements of the alcoholic beverage shipping process. The team of experts at Albatrans ensures that the specific requirements are strictly met.
