Matthew Clark manages, in-house, the largest UK On-Trade global supply chain for wine by some distance, managing the shipping of over 6 million cases of wine a year from every producing country and continent. It is through this economy of scope and scale that we are able to have the most economically efficient shipping and primary logistics supply chain solution in the industry.

This supports our ability to make outlet deliveries on a next day basis from our own depot network with unrivaled quality, range, availability and price. Each venue we supply is allocated delivery day. We recognise the importance to our customers of an effective supply chain, ensuring on time and in full delivery standards. That’s why we manage this process ‘in-house’ picking stock at our own regional depots and delivering to you on our fleet of vehicles. Our network is truly national with depots throughout the UK and our teams delivering across the nation from Penzance, Bristol and London to Liverpool, Edinburgh and Aberdeen.

We take our responsibility for the environment and the communities in which we work very seriously and have a dedicated team who are responsible for the safety and our impact on the environment. We’re thrilled to have achieved the Carbon Trust Standard for CO2 reduction. Figures following the Carbon Trust assessment have shown a 15% turnover reduction up to 31/12/2014 across all of our UK operations including all sites.

We are fully registered and compliant with all the government agencies regarding carbon emissions, waste and environment - we are a low-risk polluter and low carbon output business. We manage our deliveries using route optimisation software and are continually upgrading our fleet of HGV vehicles using efficient engines to deliver low emissions.
