Foster’s EMEA has chosen Cert Octavian for its distribution with a contract that covers its EMEA business for three years from May 2010 with an additional two year option. The deal could exceed £30 million.
Foster’s EMEA portfolio comprises over 80 brands including VB, Rosemount, Penfolds, Wolf Blass, Lindemans and Crown Ambassador. The contract will be handled principally from Cert Octavian’s distribution hub at Lutterworth.
Rob Hollis, Foster’s EMEA director, regional supply services & production, said: “We were determined to conduct a rigorous tender to identify the best logistics provider for our future needs. Cert Octavian put together a competitive and in the end a compelling, all round business case and beat fierce competition to be awarded with the contract.
“The service we receive from Cert Octavian is excellent. They have a high calibre management team, one that inspires us with every confidence. We are delighted to have chosen Cert Octavian and look forward to many years of working together productively.”
