The delivery employees of Powers Distributing are a blend of seasoned veterans and men just beginning their careers in the beer business. Our delivery department has a combined total of 853 years in the business for an average of over sixteen years! Regardless of the length of service all of them have the necessary driving skills and customer service etiquette to help grow your business. Powers Distributing also uses the latest routing software to provide the most efficient and customer friendly delivery routes possible.
The fleet at Powers is second to none in the beer industry. We meet and surpass the tough standards set by the Miller Brewing Company and completely refurbish our delivery trailers at least every four years. In 2009 Powers Distributing decided to “go green” by becoming the first beverage wholesaler in the U.S. to purchase 15 hybrid route tractors. In 2010 five more were put into service. This brings our total to 20 hybrid tractors, 10 hybrid cars and seven flex fuel vehicles. All forty-four delivery vehicles are washed by hand at least once a week. This wonderful fleet is maintained by the skilled mechanics of Penske services.
