Craft beer drinkers continue to fuel the growth of the craft beer industry as craft brewers develop innovative, new styles, experimenting with traditional and nontraditional ingredients. According to the Brewers Association, the number of craft breweries grew 15 percent in 2015 and craft beer volume share grew by 12 percent. Small and independent breweries make up 99 percent of the 4,200+ U.S. breweries.
While craft beers are rising in popularity from a consumer standpoint, managing a larger product offering and efficiently accommodating the staggering surge of unique SKUs present new challenges to beer distributors and wholesalers. Offering and selling a wider variety of brews requires additional flexibility from warehouse distributors to manage mixed SKUs and pallets, not to mention significant investments for items such as equipment and warehouse space.
Warehouse expansion is costly, so how do you optimize space? Mobile storage systems offer twice the storage capacity in the same amount of space and it helps create a more efficient way to manage all of your SKUs.
