Bar Logistics

 Equipment and Management 

This is another one of those easily forgotten, yet very important parts of managing event bars & one that hugely affects your profit margins. Logistics starts from the first item of stock and/or hired equipment delivered to your site, through to how you manage your stock on site to the last bottle leaving at the event end.


It is essential that you create an efficient and well planned logistics delivery system.  At Fai Watu we have learnt that the following key lessons can make the difference to both your customer satisfaction and your profit margins. 

  • Use the right equipment.

  • Get effective delivery of goods to/from and around your site.

  • Have the right vehicles and plant to safely do the job.

  • Work with an effective, well trained and reliable team to carry this out. 

  • Manage your supplier contracts well.
