Sector Overview

The Beer and Ale Wholesalers industry is part of the Wholesale Trade sector, which comprises establishments that specialize in commercial transactions, as firms provide bulk sales to institutional, industrial, wholesale and retail clients. As a result, wholesalers are not usually organized to serve the general public. Instead, firms typically operate from a warehouse or office that is not designed nor located to solicit a high volume of walk-in traffic. Wholesaling normally denotes large volume sales as products are generally supplied to commercial operators, however, some items may be sold in single units. These items include capital or durable non-consumer goods used for commercial purposes, such as farm machinery, medium and heavy duty trucks and other industrial equipment.
