Miller chooses Emery as air freight carrier.

Under a two-year contract, Emery Worldwide has been selected by Miller Brewing Co. as its exclusive carrier for air freight shipments within the United States.

Under the agreement, Emery will handle all Miller air freight shipments over eight pounds and requiring next-day service between the brewer's production facilities, suppliers and distributors in the continental U.S., Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico.

According to Miller's transportation rates manager Robert Niemann, the brewer chose Emery because of the carrier's consistent next-morning service, its lift capacity, and the security afforded by its controlled, closed-loop network.

"Emery put together a responsive proposal that balanced cost and service, and provided flexibility for the unique needs of our business," Niemann added.

Emery has also initiated service, under the contract, to Miller's nearly 800 distributors and manufacturing locations, and the more than 500 vendors and suppliers that the brewer does business with.

"Our joint goal was to reduce overall costs while providing consistent next-morning service levels Miller could not receive from any other single carrier," related Emery president Roger Curry. "That's being accomplished through a relationship in which we both share the rewards of emphasizing cost savings through quality improvement and better logistics management, not just the lowest price."
