ARE YOU READY FOR A NEW KEG SOLUTION ?
Chris Sapyta, the original founder of MicroStar Keg Management has combined with a logistics and freight management company, FitzMark Inc., to offer a new keg ownership option to the craft brewer.
Unlike the original keg pooling model in which a brewer is charged a per-turn fee, regardless of efficiencies or volumes, the new Keg Logistics (KLM) model is meant to reward the brewer for growing sales and faster keg turns by offering a low rental fee that actually DECREASES with the length of the agreement. Another key aspect to the offering is that the brewer will have their own kegs. By providing the brewers with their own dedicated rental kegs, KLM has eliminated the potential problem of the health of the fleet and having to deal with “foreign“ kegs and the issues that accompany them. Additionally, KLM will be proactive in maintaining the health of the keg – and will be financially responsible for keg maintenance giving the brewer the best alternative keg ownership solution ever offered to the craft brewing industry.
OUTSOURCE RENTAL MODEL – Brewers will enjoy the benefits of a lower cap-ex outsource model, but will maintain the ownership and control of their own kegs. The low rental fee will result in a net lower cost on a per-fill basis when comparing the KLM rental fee to the current per-fill fee offers or other options. In fact the longer the brewer is a KLM customer, the more the rental fee will decrease over time. There is no exclusivity required - KLM kegs will only compliment a brewer’s current fleet of kegs.
KEG MAINTENANCE and KEG HEALTH - KLM expects our brewing customers to have kegs of the highest quality and interior integrity. KLM will pay the fees for a third party keg maintenance service to pull spears, properly deep-clean kegs, replace any damaged valves, straighten necks and repair any applicable body or chimb damages. FitzMark, the 3PL parent of KLM, will assist in the transportation needs for this is operation to ensure the brewers kegs are out of the system for the shortest period of time possible.
BREWERS SAVE MONEY ON ALL FREIGHT COSTS
- Each KLM brewer can tap into FitzMark’s freight buying power, to retrieve all kegs from non-local markets at a low cost. FitzMark is interested in helping each brewer turn their kegs faster Any increase in turn efficiency will LOWER the cost per keg sold. In the KLM model a brewer’s success turning kegs works FOR them, and not against them.
- FitzMark is also capable of shipping full product, bottles, cans, kegs, and inbound goods for every brewer on a low-cost basis. FitzMark and Keg Logistics act as a true friend and partner with each of our customers.
