New General Manager for beverage transport provider

  • Posted on Wednesday 17th, May 2017.

Beverage transport company Kegstar, a business of Brambles Limited, has announced the appointment of Nick Boots as its new General Manager Australia & New Zealand.

According to the company, Boots brings more than 20 years’ experience in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), beer, wine and supply chain industries, having worked for Nestlé, CUB, Fosters Wine Estates, McWilliams Wines Group and Supply Chain Services Australia.

“I am honoured to be working with the amazing team at Kegstar in Australia and New Zealand,” Boots said. “The Kegstar keg pooling model is the ideal format for brewers, cider producers, wineries and spirits producers looking for a keg solution that will take their business to the next level.

“Having worked with world-class brands over the past 20 years, I look forward to tapping into my own experience to ensure we continue to provide outstanding service offerings to our customers, partnering with them as they delight consumers.”

Kegstar owns and manages stainless steel kegs on behalf of its customers – collecting empty kegs and redeploying them to other customers in the pool. Each Kegstar keg is uniquely identified and tracked when the keg moves through the supply chain.

The business launched in December 2012 with 880 kegs, one person and one customer. Global supply chain logistics company Brambles acquired a 30 per cent stake in March 2014 and moved to 100 per cent ownership on 1 December 2015. In Australia and New Zealand, Kegstar now owns in excess of 100,000 kegs that it rents to more than 150 customers each year.
