Wells & Young's Brewing Company is looking to outsource its southern secondary distribution.

The company's distribution in the region, currently handled out of depots in London, needs to move on due to the premises being vacated next year.

Wells & Young's said late last week that it plans to outsource these accounts to Kuehne + Nagel Drinks Logistics (KNDL) in future. If successful, the proposal, subject to board approval, will be completed by early next year.

The company said it had considered leasing warehouse space in south London, but with the recent acquisition of Courage Brands from S&N UK, it believed a third party solution would be more effective.

KNDL is one of the UK's leading drinks distributors, and specialises in the distribution of beverages to the on- and off-trade. The company employs 2,900 people and has a UK network of over 22 depots and 4 RDCs.
