BevChain history

From a strategic discussion a partnership was formed and as a result, BevChain was created. Today, BevChain successfully consolidates products from over 25 different customers, including some of Australia’s favourite beer brands for distribution across Australia and BevChain is continuing to grow. The time line below calls out the highlights of our journey so far; from incorporation, to the introduction of a host of new customers, to expansion of our capacity and growth in our service offering.

In September 2017 we marked the a hugely significant milestone for our business as Linfox took full ownership of BevChain, buying Lion's 50% share of the Joint Venture. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Linfox, we're excited about what this change means for us and our customers, as we begin to more deeply leverage the capability and scale that Linfox, Asia Pacific's largest privately owned logistics business, has to offer. Linfox has been providing logistics solutions to the beverage industry for more than 60 years, when a 16-year-old Lindsay Fox began delivering soft drinks in Melbourne during summer. For more information on Linfox, please see www.linfox.com.

BevChain will continue to operate as a separate entity to enable its focus on the specialised beverage market while benefitting from Linfox’s scale, expertise and extensive logistics network.

Linfox, Bevchain
