Hedges Distribution adds Jolly Good Beer

Grimsby, UK: Hedges Chilled Distribution is distributing Jolly Good Beer products to English breweries and pubs.

Hedges Chilled Distribution operates five chilled vehicles, including two HGVs, with a Kent delivery hub servicing London and surrounds as well as the 4,000sq ft Upwell base, near Wisbech.

Hedges Chilled Distribution was launched nine years ago, with a second hand van and refrigerated shipping container in Cambridgeshire by Yvan Seth.

Seth said: “Jolly Good Beer will continue to provide its wholesale services for beer and associated products, which will now be bolstered by Hedges Chilled Distribution network, chilled bonded warehousing, e-commerce solutions and chilled consolidation shipping links between the UK and EU operated by Fardel Shipping.” Fardel Shipping acquired Hedges in 2018. Fardel launched in 2009 providing temperature-controlled logistics and customs clearance services.

“We’ve enjoyed working with Fardel and Hedges in the past and know they provide excellent chilled logistics services. This is a highly complementary joining of forces, combining their resources and service model with our direct-to-trade wholesale network.

“Beyond significantly stabilising JGB after three years of difficult times this partnership gives us access to a wealth of capabilities that will allow us to expand coverage, range, and services to better serve brewers and trade customers,” Seth said.
