Elevating Carlsberg Group's Beer Production with Vestra Inet's Custom Forecasting and Inventory Management Solutions.
Carlsberg is one of the biggest brewers in the world. Founded in 1847 in Copenhagen, the company brews over 500 drinks and distributes its products across the globe. Carlsberg also has the longest-running partnership in the Premier League with Liverpool FC. They are also credited with the invention of the pH scale, now used by scientists and government organizations globally to measure the acidity of solutions.
- Custom forecasting and analytical software
- Inventory management system with automated purchase order generation
- Customizable reporting
A major brand that incorporates multiple products like Somersby, Kronenbourg 1664, and Tuborg, Carlsberg supplies millions of beverages every day around the world. Furthermore, these multiple brands are brewed and manufactured in different countries across the globe.
Owing to its complex business model, Carlsberg required a tool that can help them accurately predict the amount of beer they needed to produce for everyday consumption. This tool also required to take into consideration important occasions such as sporting events, carnivals, music festivals and more on a regional, national and even global scale. This is paramount from a production standpoint as producing too little will lead to shortage and brewing too much will cause wastage, as beer has an expiration date and is a perishable product.
By automating inventory prediction with the aid of a custom forecasting system, the company can now determine how much stock it requires with greater precision by drawing inferences from past data, with or without variables. With the advent of the forecasting system, the accuracy of the predictions increased from 89 percent to 97 percent.
Furthermore, since the company was also required to procure the aforementioned stock before the date of consumption, the software also had to consider the production timeline for manufacturing the beverage, as brewing beer is a time-consuming process. To add further to the complexity, Carlsberg operates multiple brewing facilities across the world, including Belgium, Germany and Russia, and these breweries make different varieties of beer that have varying production timelines. Thus, depending on the brand and the country it is being brewed and shipped from, the date of production and delivery had to be accurately determined so that the fresh stock can reach the desired location in the right quantities. Moreover, customs and other bureaucratic processes also vary across nations, hence it also had to be taken into consideration as an important variable.
With the aid of extensive inventory management and automated purchase order generation, the orders for a given stock can be placed on time by carefully considering the above-mentioned variables. Thus, it led to achieving impeccable accuracy in terms of quantity, production date and shipping timeline. This level of automation and precision was made possible by performance tracking and reporting systems, which carefully compiled shipping reports and manufacturing data from multiple countries. Thus, this software solution offered complete control over the smallest details of the supply chain of this major conglomerate while also taking out any guesswork from the process.

First started working with Vestra Inet around 6 years ago for the development of our website. Had frustration dealing with other firms prior to Vestra, so was a pleasant surprise the time and effort their team took to understand our vision and to create something that we could manage on our own. They were always up to date on the latest technology and ensured our page was as well. As their services portfolio has grown in the last few years, specifically with ERP development, we will continue to leverage their know how where we can.Curtis Pump
