Dear All,
Greetings from Stockholm. For over 7 years i have imported US craftbeers
and now it seems like the masses have woke up and there are now options
for import on a larger scale(20 or 40ft containers).
The destination is first of all to be Stockholm but my network is
spread out in Scandinavia and other european countrys, i basically have
a nice little network going on at this end of the pond!
But what is really driving me nuts is the chaos in getting information
on suitable shipper from the US, i am pretty happy with the one i use at the moment but there must be other options. I hear that there is a pretty wild
business in the US so its probably not easy but any input would be great.
I am not talking about loose pallets but full conatiners, they might be mixed,
from various pick up points in the US. Does anybody have a clue on reliable
shippers for overseas, there is no drama, bills getting paid e.t.c
Thanks
Jorgen

We do the opposite we import from Europe…. But all depending from where the container is leaving we will go with different brokers to get the best quote possible for that region.

I’ve you tried Milgram? http://www.milgram.com

Bubba,
Thanks!
I`ve heard a lot about Hillebrand as the "worlds best" shipper
on alc beverages, any input anyone!
Cheers
