DB Schenker opens a new logistics facility for Tequila Sauza
September 27, 2017: DB Schenker opened a brand-new, 60,000-square-foot logistics facility for Tequila Sauza, a Beam Suntory brand, in Guadalajara, Mexico. At this dedicated facility, Beam Suntory will be using DB Schenker’s full scope of contract logistics capabilities to manage the export of its finished goods.
“This facility is entirely focused on Tequila Sauza end-to-end export requirements,” said Jesus Barba, Branch manager, DB Schenker.
Within the facility, the Consejo Regulador del Tequila (Tequila Regulatory Council) will have dedicated space where it will perform the validation of products for export. Tequila Sauza is also utilising DB Schenker’s warehouse management system (WMS) to support and automate its day-to-day logistics operations and centralise the tracking inventory levels and stock location.
Maria Liliana Bermudez Gonzalez of Beam Suntory said the new contract logistics facility would support Tequila Sauza ongoing growth while allowing the company to do what it does best: produce some of the world’s finest tequila.
For Tequila Sauza, DB Schenker will receive the finished goods, prepare all export documentation, prepare tickets according to customer purchase orders, and generate key performance indicators (KPI) on a weekly and monthly basis.
