Anheuser-Busch has signed a multi-year partnership with Seattle-based trucking startup Convoy to transport beer.
Founded in 2015, Convoy is a network of technology-connected carriers that matches available trucks with shippers that need to move freight. Convoy expanded recently in northeastern U.S. and said it expects to be fully national soon.
“Convoy’s data management platform has the potential to uncover valuable business insights for us by recording the DNA of shipments from order creation to delivery,” Ties Soeters, Anheuser-Busch’s vice president of logistics procurement, said in a statement. “These insights allow Anheuser-Busch to make better, data-driven decisions so that we can improve our processes across our supply chain and create better jobs for truck drivers.”
Anheuser-Busch ranks No. 50 on the Transport Topics Top 100 list of the largest North American private carriers.
