THE INTERSECTION OF SCIENCE, EDUCATION & CRAFT
What began as home brewers searching for higher quality yeast, quickly grew into a team of dedicated biochemists exploring new ways to advance brewing altogether. Today, White Labs stands at the intersection of science, education and craft. Constantly striving for perfection, and in the process continually raising the bar in the art of fermentation. Every day, they set out on a single mission: To stretch the limits of science in order to set new standards in purity and freshness. From the industry’s first pitchable liquid yeast to a complete revolution in the way it’s propagated and packaged, their innovative spirit is tireless.
And our belief that creating the best, most environmentally friendly products goes hand-in-hand with making the best use of them, has inspired a culture of education and collaboration with brewers, distillers and winemakers the world over.
White Labs. Advancing fermentation. Cultivating community.
White Labs specializes in producing cultures for beverage makers worldwide, creating pure yeast and shipping to breweries, distilleries, and wineries around the globe. Since yeast is a fragile, living organism, White Labs relies on overnight shipping and timey delivery for customer satisfaction. This leads to hefty shipping expenses and a critical need for robust Shipping Intelligence™ to ensure they are getting the most out of their shipping agreement to manage both cost and customer experience expectations.
White Labs partnered with Shipping Intelligence™ company Reveel 6 years ago when they were looking to cut their shipping costs and recoup savings from their carrier. The team at White Labs was able to stay focused on their mission, while Reveel’s software platform handles the hard work of interpreting a mountain of shipping data with advanced data science to capture contract savings and refund credits. White Labs worked alongside Reveel to renegotiate their shipping agreement and were able to save over $700,000 on shipping expenses.
Today, White Labs utilizes Reveel’s Shipping Intelligence® platform to audit their data twice a month to ensure they are on track to continually save money with constantly changing carrier shipping terms and customer needs. From the start of the pandemic, shipping carriers abruptly cancelled shipping guarantees, which was a huge blow to White Labs and their need for priority 1 day shipping. Now that the supply chain has stabilized a year later, carriers have reinstated shipping guarantees and White Labs is leveraging the Reveel platform to automatically capture audit credits on late deliveries as well as manage pricing bands, minimums and service fees.
