Created in 2008 as a sister company to Belt Transport, today Templeton Beer Wine & Spirit Co is one of West Wales leading composite drinks wholesalers. Delivering to the hospitality trade across West Wales 7 days a week.
Partner wholesalers to Molson Coors, Carlsberg, Heineken, Felinfoel, Tomos Watkins, SA Brains, Gower Brewery and many many more.
Specialising in Fine Wines & Spirits, Real Ale and soft drinks.
Felinfoel’s have been producing their beer in cans since 1935 which makes them the oldest canners of craft beer in the world.
The brewery, built in 1878 is situated in ‘Felinfoel’, a small village adjoining Llanelli in Wales.
What Felinfoel don’t know about brewing beer can be written on the same page as what Belt Transport doesn’t know about logistics.
After almost 10 years of working alongside each other in West Wales, in November 2017 Capt Beryn Lewis and Lyndon Belt joined forces where by Templeton Beer Wine & Spirt Co were appointed as Felinfoel Brewery Co’s Wholesale & Distribution partner for West Wales.
The last of the global brewers to leave West Wales and relocate along the M4 corridor. When comparing distribution budget to cost it was the obvious move to use Belt Transport as their ‘local’ delivery service.
Delivering up to 40 tonnes per day, Belt Transport became such an inclusive part of their business they used the sales strapline “Buy direct from Carlsberg & have your beer delivered by Templeton”.
Sadly as part of a global streamlining exercise Carlsberg were also the last major brewer to dispose of their in-house distribution and in November 2017 contracted their deliveries to Tradeteam.
When Dai & Glyn bottled their first pallets of water in 1991, Belt Transport was their first choice for distribution.
They had attended trade fairs across the UK and subsequently gained customers across London & the South East.
A couple of pallets of water destined for off-licenses & corner shops would be loaded by tractor & front-end loader at New House Farm, Princes Gate, the remainder of the trailer then filled with steel from Cardiff and deliver over the next couple of days.
Following the sale of Princes Gate to Nestle in 2018 as history repeats its self, today we store, pick & ship 50 pallets a week across the UK from our Templeton warehouse.
Originating from BRS via EXEL Logistics add a little Welsh Brewers & Deutsche Post and you arrive at DHL Tradeteam, the UK’s largest drink distributor to the licensed trade.
Delivering on a 3 day lead time on behalf of Molson Coors, InBev, SA Brains, Bibendum, Greene King, JD Wetherspoons and many more.
In the height of the holiday season and the town centre pedestrianisation that accompanies it, Belt Transport provides a same day delivery service to the far flung corners of West Wales.
Growing out of the Courage / Scottish & Newcastle brewery world KNDL distribute for Heineken, Britvic, Wadworth and many more.
Revolutionising the drinks distribution industry recently by Swansea operating as one of their regional stockless depots being fed overnight from a central hub. No mean task with SKU lines growing daily.
The rural nature & scattering of accounts across West Wales creates the same challenges for KNDL as every other national drink distributor.
Belt Transports comprehensive cover across West Wales frequently assists in those awkward situations.
Based in deepest darkest Somerset, Matthew Clark is our most distant logistics partner.
Whilst the metropolis of Swansea seems like West Wales to most of the UK, the Matthew Clark distribution team know different.
Supplying regional and national accounts is a costly task when sending two men or keeping a local delivery lorry out overnight.
Matthew Clark can trunk into our depot and re-assuringly leave the mountain climbing to us.
Our latest partner, busy doing what they know best, picking & pressing apples to produce their finest Cider and Apple Juice.
Combining the seasonality peaks & troughs with the added seasonality of Autumn apple picking doesn’t help any producer when it comes to storage and distribution.
Our collect, store, pick & deliver service is the perfect solution for the busy Pembrokeshire Cider Co team.
One of West Wales many mirco-breweries. Again seasonality is our biggest friend & enemy in West Wales. During in the peak Summer months Harbwr’s customers make it very worthwhile delivering to, whilst in the depths of Winter one cask to Cardiganshire is not viable.
This is when Belt Transports comprehensive daily delivery service comes to the rescue, we are in or near most West Wales villages most days of the week so Harbwr can offer their customers a delivery service untouchable by the rest.
