Chemicals & logistics

Chemical products are often the basis of the production process and therefor the demand for these products is high. Whether it concerns a can of deodorant, coatings, plastic cups, rolls of carpet or a can of paint: they all have their origin in chemistry. This results in large shipping volumes by road, on board of aircrafts and container vessels. Working with chemicals demands special attention from you as producer, importer or distributor. Are all means of transport allowed for chemical products or raw materials? Are there special packing requirements? Do customs perform extra checks on these products and which formalities should be taken care of? Are you still confident regarding the logistics? Can you save on transport costs when importing or exporting chemicals or not, because you are not familiar with rules and regulations?

“Chemical in the leather industry: a very special branch. One of our customers asked us how they could best organise certain transports. About 40% of their products is classified as hazardous. Furthermore, in certain periods their goods need to be shipped under controlled temperature. This combination results in high demands for transport and completion time. To handle this, we ship the chemicals worldwide by air freight, a fast solution which also gives room for temperature controlled options. When a shipment within Europe is urgent, we engage an express transport so goods arrive exactly on time. To save cost within Europe, we choose for groupage when possible. To do this worldwide, we consider possibilities to ship the goods by ocean freight containers. To facilitate the loading, we timely place empty containers at loading site, so loading can be done when suited.”
