Kegstar is an asset pooling and logistics company specializing in beverage kegs. In it’s most simple form Kegstar rents kegs to producers and collects the kegs from pubs. The kegs are delivered fit to fill, filled by the producer and then delivered to a licensed venue for pouring to customers. Kegstar collects the kegs once empty. The kegs are then pooled and re-rented.  One of the great benefits of the Kegstar product is that producers don’t have to concern themselves with a capital investment in a keg fleet nor with reverse logistics; once the keg reaches the venue it is no longer the responsibility of the producer. Kegstar take responsibility for the venue relationship and collect the empty keg.  Kegstar is leading the way with keg tracking, all Kegstar kegs are labelled with a unique bar code that is scanned at every stage along the supply chain. Kegstar’s smart phone scanning app is free to download. Kegstar now operates in Australia, New Zealand and the UK.
